Since Ariana Grande's debut in 2013, she has embarked on four concert tours (three of them worldwide), and TV and award shows performances. She promoted her debut album Yours Truly in 2013 and 2014, through performances at several award ceremonies and television shows, including the Wango Tango, the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and Grammy Awards. Grande has served as an opening act for Justin Bieber on selected dates of his Believe Tour in 2013.

In 2013, she embarked on her debut concert tour, The Listening Sessions, which only visited North America and grossed over $679,360. She embarked on her first world tour and second in general The Honeymoon Tour in 2015 to promote her second studio album My Everything. The tour visited North America, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. At the end of 2015, the tour placed at number 40 on Pollstar's "2015 Year-End Top 100 Worldwide Tours" list, grossing $41.8 million from 88 shows with a total attendance of 808,667.[1]

Grande's next tour was named the Dangerous Woman Tour, which began in February 2017 and ended in September 2017 visiting North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and Oceania. In December 2017, it was reported that the tour had grossed over $71 million.[2] On May 22, 2017, after Grande's concert at Manchester Arena, a suicide bomber killed 22 concert-attenders. In response to the terrorist attack, Grande and her team organized a benefit concert named One Love Manchester. The concert was retransmitted in different TV channels such as BBC. The concert averaged 10.9 million viewers on BBC One, peaking at 14.5 million viewers.[3] 22.6 million people watched at least three minutes of the programme on BBC One, making it the UK's most-watched television event of 2017.[4]

On August 8, 2018, Grande announced The Sweetener Sessions, her first promotional tour in support of her fourth studio album, Sweetener.[5] The concert series only had four stops, three in North America and a fourth one in London.[6][7] In August 2018, the singer announced on Good Morning America that the tour was scheduled to begin in February 2019.[8] It was scheduled to be an arena tour. In September, due to the death of her former boyfriend and rapper Mac Miller and other "emotional problems", the tour got postponed, and almost scrapped.[9] Later that month, Grande tweeted about her fourth concert tour saying: "like maybe i’ll do a mini one. i cant do what i did last time right now".[10] Due to emotional issues, the singer took a break from the public eye, cancelling some performances and public appearances to "spend some time with herself".[11][12]

In October 2018, Grande announced her fourth concert tour, the Sweetener World Tour, in support of both her fourth studio album, Sweetener, and her fifth studio album, Thank U, Next. It began in March 2019 in North America, with dates also being announced in Europe.[13] In January 2019, it was announced that Grande would headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, becoming the youngest artist to headline the event, and the fourth female artist.[14] Later that year, Grande announced a third leg of the Sweetener Tour which would return to North America, extending the tour to December 2019.
