The "Sweetener World Tour," in support of Grande's latest album of the same name, comes at a time when the singer said she is emotionally ready to get back on the road. In May 2017, 22 people were killed in a bombing after her Manchester Arena concert. Grande has said she's had more issues with her anxiety since the attack.

“Sweetener” is her first album since the bombing.
