The Dangerous Woman Tour was Ariana Grande's third concert tour in support of her third studio album Dangerous Woman, which was released on May 20, 2016.

Background Edit

On July 7, 2016, Grande replied to a Twitter post that she's working on the tour dates.[1] On July 31, Grande replied to a Twitter post that she will likely to announce the tour dates at the end of August.[2] The two opening acts were announced to be Little Mix and Victoria Monét.

The DW Tour Instagram account was created at the end of October 2016 to document the tour. Rehearsals fully began after the completion of Hairspray Live! in December and throughout January. Grande worked with Alfredo Flores, Hannah Lux Davis, and Jones Crow to create visuals for the tour.[3][4][5]

On February 27, 2017, Live Nation announced that BIA will be joining the tour as the opening act for the UK dates during the European leg of the tour. She is also opening in Scandinavia and Amsterdam.[6]

    • Initially, people thought it was gas balloons or a speaker exploding, but on May 23 it was confirmed that it was a bomb.
    • Ariana did a benefit concert, One Love Manchester where many singers performed.

    • Hannah Lux Davis directed the visual as throughout the whole Dangerous Woman Tour.
  • On September 17, Lady Cultura was fired after using a racial slur[12]
  • Grande and Flores worked together and created a YouTube Docuseries titled The Dangerous Woman Diaries that was released on November 29, 2018 which acts as the concert film for the Dangerous Woman Tour and contains behind the scenes footage of the Dangerous Woman Tour and her fourth studio album, Sweetener.

Setlist Edit

In her interview with Ryan Seacrest, Grande said that she would perform every song from Dangerous Woman. She said she would also sing some old songs as well as covers.[13] She also expressed her desire to perform "Focus"[14] (although she did end up doing this) and to extend "Knew Better" for the tour.[15] She expressed wanting to use the Mi.Mu Gloves on the tour originally[16] but eventually decided not to use them on tour.
