Ariana Grande kicked off her “Sweetener World Tour” in Albany, New York on Monday night.
The setlist spanned 29 sungs divided into five distinct acts. Much of the material come back here her two recently published LPs, Sweetener and thank u, next, including the live debuts of” Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored”,” 7 rings”, “Bloodline”, and “NASA”. She also sang past hittings such as “Everytime”, ” One Last Time”,” Break Free”, and” No Tears Left to Cry “. The evening end with an encore performance of” thank u, next “.
According to BBC News, the setlist originally included “Ghostin'” and “Imagine”, from thank u, next, but Grande ultimately decided they were “too heavy” to sing live. Both anthems address her relationship with late rapper Mac Miller.
Grande did pay tribute to Miller in another way, however. According to Us, Miller’s music — including his song “Dang!” — was played over the arena’s speaker prior to the show’s star.
The stage was erected in the shape of a ring( natch) and featured two spherical video screens. In the venue’s concourse, there were voting registration kiosks promoting fans to register ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
See video from the concert along with the evening’s full setlist below.
