Album Review: Ariana's 'Sweetener'
Ariana Grande broadens her horizons on 'Sweetener'... to mixed results.

Ariana Grande kicked off the Sweetener World Tour at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York last night (March 18) and made her way through a good chunk of her discography. The 29-song concert began with “Raindrops” and then moved on to Sweetener single “God Is A Woman” and Thank U, Next cuts “Bad Idea” and “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.” She eventually dusted off an older song by belting out “Be Alright,” but soon returned to more current material with “Sweetener” and “Successful.”

While the setlist is largely devoted to her 2018/2019 albums, most of Ariana’s big hits were covered including “Side To Side,” “Love Me Harder,” “One Last Time,” “Into You,” “Dangerous Woman” and “Break Free.” As expected, the 25-year-old closed the show with “No Tears Left To Cry” and “Thank U, Next.” It will be interesting to see if she condenses the setlist somewhat as the tour hits the road. In the meantime, check out the full opening night setlist below.
