Concerts in L.A. in May
Between the tragic Manchester Arena bombing, the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and the very public end of her brief engagement to SNL star Pete Davidson, the past year has been a rough one for Ariana Grande. But amid the turmoil, the singer released Sweetner, her most impressive collection of songs to date, filled with empowering anthems and soaring R&B ballads (not to mention the inescapable single “God is a Woman”). The former Nickelodeon star will take her latest album on the road this spring, including stops at the Staples Center and the Forum, where Grande can fill the cavernous venues with her expansive vocal range. No word yet on whether or not her pet pig, Piggy Smalls, will make an appearance, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed. Tickets go on sale Monday, November 5 at 10am.
