Ariana Grande Announces Sweetener World Tour Weeks After Pete Davidson Breakup, Mac Miller Death

Ariana Grande has officially announced a tour in support of her new album, Sweetener, ending speculation about whether she would take the project on the road after a series of emotional events in her personal life that caused the singer to retreat from the spotlight.

The "Breathin'" singer made the announcement Thursday, Oct. 25, after having told fans on Wednesday that they might want to be online the next day.

Grande had previously updated fans on her frame of mind when it came to her tour, initially expressing that she wanted to take some time for herself before sharing that she couldn't wait to see fans on the road.

In recent weeks, it became clear the singer would indeed take her show on the road, revealing that she would be touring as well as possibly releasing more new music.

Replying to one fan who wrote, "you literally made an album in 2/3 months," Grande responded, ""how u think i survived these 2/3 months ksjsksjs.........damn love u."

In September, Grande's ex Mac Miller passed away, and in October, it was reported that she had split from fiancé Pete Davidson. After taking some time for herself, it's clear Grande is ready to see her fans, as evidenced by the 42 tour dates she announced on Thursday.

The trek will begin in Albany, New York in March 2019, with Grande traveling the United States and Canada to play venues including the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Madison Square Garden in New York City, the latter of which marks the last of the North American dates in June.
