Ariana Grande may be dealing with a lot in her personal life but that isn’t stopping her from giving her all to her adoring fans.

The Pop/Soul superstar announced a 42-date North American trek called “The Sweetener World Tour.” The jaunt will launch on March 18, 2019 in Albany, NY, and make stops in major cities like Boston, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, and Atlanta before wrapping on June 18 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

An American Express pre-sale starts Thursday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. local time through Saturday, Nov. 3 at 10 p.m. local time.

“The Sweetener World Tour” follows the release of Grande’s fourth album Sweetener, which was released in August and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 231,000 equivalent album units.

Grande’s last trek, 2017’s “Dangerous Woman Tour,” was met with an unforeseen tragedy. During a stop at the Manchester Arena show on May 22, a terrorist bombing killed 22 concertgoers and injured more than 800. Earlier this year, Ariana confessed she suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder following the tragedy, and in more recent weeks, she has struggled with crippling anxiety issues, which she feared would cause problems for her tour hopes.

Grande is also still mourning the loss of ex-boyfriend Mac Miller, who passed away in September. She previously told fans that performing live would help her heal from the untimely passing as well as helping her get over her broken engagement to comedian Pete Davidson earlier this month.

“I’m ready my heart needs it actually (sic),” the pop superstar wrote on Twitter after a fan asked about touring. “finalizing a few more things but I’m tryna get em dates to u asap (sic).”
