The Setlist
With two brand new albums under her belt, the "7 Rings" singer has managed to effortlessly intertwine Sweetener hits and Thank U, Next hits as well as fan favorite tracks to craft an unforgettable setlist. Each night, the pop star kicks off her 26-track setlist with Sweetener opening a cappella track "Raindrops (An Angel Cried)" before moving into single "God Is A Woman" and Thank U, Next fan favorite b-side "Bad Idea."
Grande splits up her setlist into five different acts comprised of different tracks from her two most recent albums. One act in itself is made up of the singer's previous radio-dominating hits. Tracks included "Everytime," "One Last Time," and Dangerous Woman mega-dance hit "Into You."
From Sweetener, Grande features deep cuts like "R.E.M.," "Successful," and "Goodnight n Go." In addition to the Sweetener appearances, she also features a whole act of b-sides from Thank U, Next including "Needy," "Fake Smile," and "Make Up," among many others.

Special Moments
During her opening night in Albany, Grande had the crowd neck deep in their feelings as she prepped the audience by playing various tracks from the late Mac Miller before the show. The singer ended the pre-show playlist with Miller's "Dang!" before welcoming tour openers Social House and Normani to the stage.
Surprise Guests
Not only was the beginning of the show a tear-jerker, Grande brought along happier surprises on the road. Just as her biggest fans know every word to every song in her discography, Grande welcomed an unexpectedly sweet surprise to her setlist during her Boston tour stop on March 25th.
During the second act of the evening, Grande welcomed long time collaborator and friend Victoria Monet to the stage to live debut an unreleased song "She's Got Her Own." The track originally made an appearance on the singer's snapchat back in 2016, but it is undeniable how much the Arianators already love it.

Grande also welcomed rapper 2 Chainz to the Sweetener stage for the first ever live performance of their collaboration track "Rule The World" during her stop in Boston. The duo performed around Grande's famed "7 Rings" set, including a car covered in 7 Rings-themed graffiti and a sea of neon-pink thanks to the color palette of the singer's "7 Rings" set. The same colors can also be seen on the rapper's album artwork for Pretty Girls Like Trap Music.

The Encore
Even though there is only one encore song at the end of the set, it's a track everyone in the audience can really scream at the top of their lungs, since it is "Thank U, Next!" When the opening beat descends upon the ears of everyone in the room, Grande rises from beneath her stage enclosed by her dancers to perform the pop-anthem. However, not everything tends to go as planned.
Once the end arrived during her Boston show, Grande began to shed tears when she sang her late ex-boyfriend's name "Malcom" in the opening lyrics. But as many of her true fans know, Grande is not one to let her emotions get the best of her big night. She took to Instagram after the show to express her gratitude to her fans writing, "thanks for accepting my humanness. it’s super emo and difficult singing some of these songs. but you make me smile," Grande wrote in her caption.
