After months of waiting, Ariana Grande finally dropped her much-anticipated 2017 “Dangerous Woman Tour” dates on September 8.
Ariana finally unveiled the first round of tour dates during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, telling the late night host that she is “very excited” to head out on the road for the first time since her “Honeymoon Tour” wrapped in 2015.
“I can’t wait to get on the road again,” Grande told Fallon of the “Dangerous Woman Tour” on the talk show according to Rolling Stone. “There will be more dates coming, but for now, I just had to get something because [of] my fans. I promised them. I’m a little late.”
It’s safe to say Ariana’s fans were pretty excited after Grande revealed the dates for the first leg of her big tour, taking to social media to express their excitement.
“Omg I’m so excited #DangerousWomanTour,” Ariana fan @agbuteraslocks tweeted out after Grande dropped her all-important tour dates, “I’m dying. #DangerousWomanTour,” Twitter user @__focusonme added. “Hope this year I’m gonna see you @ArianaGrande cause you’re all I need queen.”
While Ariana’s fans will have to wait a little longer to find out more details about Grande’s upcoming tour details, the star has been dropping a few hints in recent months about what to expect when she hits the road.
Ariana has so far only announced the first North American leg of the “Dangerous Woman Tour,” revealing to fans on social media that she’ll be performing 36 shows around the U.S. and Canada between February 2 and April 15 2017.
Grande teased her upcoming shows on Twitter on September 9, confirming that more shows are set to be added, including at least one international leg.

“International dates & more to come,” Grande teased alongside a graphic showing the more than 35 confirmed shows.
Ariana is yet to officially confirm which other countries she’ll be visiting on the “Dangerous Woman Tour” next year, though Grande’s Twitter account, @DWTourUpdates, previously revealed that the tour will also include shows in the U.K. and potentially a stop in Japan.
It’s also thought that Ariana will be heading to Australia, as Grande previously told fans that she was hoping to head down under for tour dates after missing the country on her past “Honeymoon Tour.”
Ariana Grande has been staying pretty tight-lipped when it comes to which of her hits she’s planning on performing, though she has been dropping a couple of hints when it comes to which of her back catalogue of hits she’ll be treating fans to when the “Dangerous Woman Tour” hits the road in February.
Earlier this year, Ariana replied “of course” when asked by a fan on Twitter if she would be performing the Dangerous Woman track “Thinking Bout You” on tour, before confirming that she’s also planning on changing up some of the songs from her most recent album.
“Omg yes,” Grande later replied to another excited fan who tweeted Ariana to ask if she was planning on performing the album track “Knew Better” on the “Dangerous Woman Tour” next year.
“[I] want to extend her (Knew Better) for the tour,” Ariana confirmed.
Grande also appeared to confirm that her 2015 single “Focus,” which was not featured on the standard edition of Dangerous Woman, will also make the tour set list, liking a tweet by a fan back in July that read “will you sing Focus???”
Ariana has also been teasing the “Dangerous Woman Tour” merchandise on social media, recently telling fans on Snapchat that the items made available on her tour stops will be “fantastic.”
“Tour dates are coming and the merch will be fantastic,” Grande teased on Snapchat.
