Ariana Grande has already revealed that she’ll be playing more than 35 shows in North America on her 2017 “Dangerous Woman Tour,” but which international countries will her huge tour be visiting. Ariana has been hinting at the upcoming international tour dates for her highly anticipated 2017 tour for months now, but now she’s finally giving fans a more concrete idea of exactly which countries she’s planning to visit when the “Dangerous Woman Tour” kicks off in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 2.
Speaking out her big plans to take her upcoming shows international, Grande revealed in a recent interview with Australia’s Sunrise that she’ll most definitely be heading down under at some point next year, marking the first time Ariana has ever toured in Australia after missing the country on her 2015 “Honeymoon Tour.”
“I haven’t announced my international dates yet but they are coming,” Ariana revealed when asked if her “Dangerous Woman Tour” would be heading to Australia in the interview.
However, Grande did admit that she already knows that her shows will include at least one stop down under.
“We are working on them,” said Ariana of international dates, “and I’m definitely coming to Australia!”
Grande’s big tease that she will, in fact, be heading to Australia for her “Dangerous Woman Tour” comes amid the U.S. tour dates receiving unprecedented demand, as New York’s Madison Square Garden announced on Twitter that Ariana’s February 23 show at the prestigious venue has sold so well that Grande has scheduled a second show for the following night.
“Due to overwhelming demand, a second Ariana Grande show has been added on 2/24,” the venue revealed in a tweet on October 3. “Tix go on sale to the general public this Friday!”
Ariana Grande’s big Madison Square Garden milestone came after weeks of teasing when it comes to the upcoming schedule for her international shows, which Ariana recently revealed were coming soon on social media.
“I promise… international dates are being worked out as we speak,” Grande revealed on social media last month, revealing that girl band Little Mix and Victoria Monet will serve as her support acts for her North American shows.
Grande also teased her upcoming shows when announcing her North American dates during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last month, where she officially confirmed that more dates outside the U.S. and Canada were still to come.
“There will be more dates coming,” Grande confirmed on the late night talk show of the shows that are still to be announced, “but for now, I just had to get something because [of] my fans.”
Ariana echoed that more tour dates will be on the way ahead of her “Dangerous Woman Tour” on social media.
“International dates & more to come,” Ariana told her followers alongside a graphic showing the currently scheduled U.S. shows, showing Grande’s more than 30 stops.
Ariana is yet to reveal the exact details of her international stops for her much anticipated 2017 tour, though it’s safe to say that Grande’s millions of fans are getting pretty excited for the “Side to Side” singer to spill the beans on exactly where she’ll be heading outside of the U.S. and Canada next year.
Are you looking forward to the release of Ariana Grande’s international stops for her 2017 “Dangerous Woman Tour?”
Ariana Grande has become a pop-R&B diva in her own right, releasing hit after hit on mainstream radio. But would she ever try out another genre? Country, perhaps? The singer says she could definitely see herself doing it one day, crediting her grandfather for the inspiration.
“My grandpa, he always wanted me to do something in the country world. I don’t know if that would ever happen. If that opportunity, when it comes along, I’d have to say, ‘Hell yeah!’” she explains to Entertainment Tonight.
She does admit, though, that she’d have to do some research before she’d feel like she had a grasp on the genre as a whole.
“My dad was a really big Dixie Chicks fan, so that’s the most country I’ve been exposed to,” says Grande. “I definitely need to do more country music homework.”
