Ariana Grande opened her much-anticipated 2017 “Dangerous Woman Tour” on February 3, and it’s safe to say fans are pretty excited about Grande’s latest arena tour.
Fans flocked to social media to praise the star on the opening night of her huge tour production, her first since Grande hit the road for her “Honeymoon Tour” in 2015, and lucky attendees at the first show at Phoenix, Arizona’s Talking Stick Arena were quick to dish the details on exactly what the “Dangerous Woman Tour” has to offer, from the setlist, to the visuals, to Grande’s show-stopping costumes.
As for the “Dangerous Woman Tour’s” all-important setlist, Ariana fan @DWTourUpdates confirmed that Grande performed a number of her biggest hits including “Problem,” “One Last Time” and “Love Me Harder,” as well as a tracks from Ariana’s 2016 release, Dangerous Woman, including the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You.”
Ariana previously confirmed that she would be performing all the tracks from Dangerous Woman in a tweet to a fan last year, and it looks like she kept her promise.
Teasing the “Dangerous Woman Tour” setlist on Twitter back in December, Ariana hit back at a fans asking what track’s she’d perform by tweeting out, “Lmaooooo. Doing all of [Dangerous Woman].”
But it wasn’t just Ariana’s hit-filled setlist that left her fans impressed.
Concertgoers also took to social media to share snaps of Ariana’s stunning stage costumes from the opening night of the “Dangerous Woman Tour,” which featured an array of stunning outfits.
Grande flaunted a slew of stunning costumes as she performed her hits from Dangerous Woman and beyond, sporting a black pleather ball-gown style ensemble in a photo uploaded from the “Dangerous Woman Tour’s” opening night by Ariana’s brother Frankie Grande.
Other photos uploaded to social media by fans from the opening night showed that Ariana opted to keep her signature ponytail for the first show as she also rocked a black turtle-neck mini-dress and a lavender bra top with high-waist matching shorts.
But it wasn’t just in her costumes where Ariana stunned, as Grande also pulled out all the stops when it came to the tour’s visuals, on which some lucky fans will get to meet the pop star herself before shows via Meet and Greet packages.
Twitter user @ArianaTodayNet tweeted out a snap from Grande’s first show of her 2017 tour which revealed one of Ariana’s background visuals shows a whole lot of love to the LGBTQ+ community during her performance of “Thinking ‘Bout You.”
“Ariana represented all sexual orientations during her performance of ‘Thinking Bout You’ tonight #LoveWins #DangerousWomanTour,” the Twitter user wrote of Grande, who has been outspoken about her support for the LGBTQ+ community on numerous occasions in the past, posting a snap of cartoon images showing people embracing.
Grande also gave fans their first look at the big tease she posted to social media earlier this month, taking to an exercise bike as she performed her duet with Nicki Minaj “Side to Side” as a throwback to her performance with the rapper at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards, while Ariana was also surrounded by dancers for a number of songs.
Ariana fans also tweeted out that Grande was actually giving out free cash during her performance of “Greedy,” spraying the crowd with fake dollars featuring her image.
