Her most recent single released on Tidal, YouTube, iTunes, and Google Play is "Gucci Comin' Home" a song that pays homage to Gucci Mane.

Costume design

For the show's visual, Grande worked with her stylist Law Roach and designer Bryan Hearns, creating a more "mature" and "growth" look for Grande. Describing the concept of the outfits used during the shows, Hearns stated: "It's about making an adult Ariana, marrying her silhouette with what's happening in fashion right now, so a big theme is sportswear—everything is oversized, there are straps everywhere, and cool hardware ... It's definitely more edgy, it's more adult, but still playful and young." [11] Talking about the opening look, a high-neck black bodysuit, with a flirty skirt on top, he revealed that the look was designed one day before of the first show. He explained: "I slept for four hours. It was stressful, but it was exciting. It was awesome." [11] The look was inspired by Audrey Hepburn. During an interview with Billboard , Hearns said:

A personal stylist advises individuals on new fashion trends, clothing styles, colours and make-up. A personal stylist is not to be confused with a wardrobe stylist, who selects the clothing for published editorial features, print or television advertising campaigns, music videos, concert performances, and public appearances made by celebrities and models. Personal stylists typically work one-on-one with the client, while Wardrobe Stylists are often part of a larger creative team collaborating with a fashion designer, photographer, art director, hair stylist, and makeup artist to put together a particular look or theme for the specific project.

Bodysuit one-piece form-fitting garment that covers the torso and the crotch

A bodysuit or shorthand body is a one-piece form-fitting, and/or skin-tight garment that covers the torso and the crotch, and sometimes, the legs, hands, and feet, and cannot be used as a swimsuit. The style of a basic bodysuit is similar to a one-piece swimsuit and a leotard, though the materials may vary. A bodysuit, unlike a swimsuit or leotard, has snaps, hooks or velcro at the crotch. Thong or T-front thong bodysuits usually have the crotch opening moved up to the front to underbelly area to increase the wearer's comfort. A bodysuit may have sleeves and varying shoulder strap and collar styles. Bodysuits can be made from a number of fabrics, including cotton, lace, nylon, etc. In general, textile bodysuits include expandable fiber such as spandex for a better fit to the shape of the body.

Audrey Hepburn British actress

Audrey Hepburn was a British actress, model, dancer, and humanitarian. Recognised as a film and fashion icon, Hepburn was active during Hollywood's Golden Age. She was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood, and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.

Most of the looks are my direct aesthetic, so I put my stamp on it. It was just a certain silhouette that she wanted and certain colors, and that's how we met in the middle. We had a couple of looks that were in her silhouette, which is usually high-waisted bodysuits, shorts, skirts and crop tops. It's very flattering on her so we have a lot of items in that shape. [12]

Silhouette image

A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, with its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is featureless, and the hole is typically presented on a light background, usually white, or none at all. The silhouette differs from an outline, which depicts the edge of an object in a linear form, while a silhouette appears as a solid shape. Silhouette images may be created in any visual artistic media, but were first used to describe pieces of cut paper, which were then stuck to a backing in a contrasting colour, and often framed.

Shorts garment for the lower body ending above the knee

Shorts are a garment worn over the pelvic area, circling the waist and splitting to cover the upper part of the legs, sometimes extending down to the knees but not covering the entire length of the leg. They are called "shorts" because they are a shortened version of trousers, which cover the entire leg, but not the foot. Shorts are typically worn in warm weather or in an environment where comfort and air flow are more important than the protection of the legs.

Skirt garment of varying length extending from the waist or hip and covering a part of the lower body. Also, the lower part of a dress, coat, or other garment

A skirt is the lower part of a dress or gown, covering the person from the waist downwards, or a separate outer garment serving this purpose.

He also revealed that "everything was a mixture of leather, denim, strappy fabrics and hardware." "We use a lot of sweatshirt fabric because everything is very relaxed-looking. It doesn’t have a lot going on in terms of the details." [12] The look styled by Grande during the fourth act of the show, a crop-top with blue pants, was inspired by 90s styles (mainly the R&B group TLC). [11]

Concert synopsis

Ten minutes before the show started, a countdown timer and video projected on a giant screen in front of the stage showing Grande and two of her dancers. After the end of the countdown, ten dancers emerged onstage followed by Grande, who wore a black dress and high heeled boots. The show began with "Be Alright". Grande sang while performing a vogue-style choreography, while dancers, dressed in black costumes, move around her. [13] [14] After the song, Grande puts on a jacket and performed "Everyday" as red lights dimmed the stage to a background of pyrotechnics. During the performance, the rapper Future appeared in the projected video singing his verse. [15] Next was "Bad Decisions", with elevated platforms and Grande's dancers around her. [15] "Let Me Love You" followed, on a stage dimly lit by blue and white lights. [15] [14] Grande exited over an elevated platform that then descended. The song transitioned into an orchestral string interlude followed by video of Grande, with a purple aura around her, singing an intro for "Dangerous Woman" that did not appear on the video release.

The second part of the show began with an extended version of "Knew Better" during which Grande and her dancers dressed in street-style white clothes, followed by "Forever Boy", featuring colorful stage effects. [15] Grande then performed a stripped down version of "One Last Time", which transitioned into the original version of the song. Next was R&B-inspired song "Touch It". Stage projections and visual effects were shown as Grande again stood atop an elevated platform. [16] [15] Grande concluded the second part singing "Leave Me Lonely" with lighting effects. After the end of the song, an extended version of the song played as Grande went backstage for a costume change, and a backing band (guitars, drums, bass and keyboards) arrived onstage. [13] [14]

The third act of the show started with a second interlude on the video screen, showing Grande in blonde hair and a leotard posing provocatively as feminist words are displayed, including "empowered", "grounded", "not asking for it" (which repeats multiple times), "free", "gentle", "ferocious", "sexual", "human" and "female". [16] [14] Grande then ascended to the stage wearing a gray bra and a skirt with straps, while her dancers rode stationary bicycles on a platform to perform "Side to Side". [13] [15] [14] The stage transformed into a gymnasium with lockers, benches and a chinning bar. Rapper Nicki Minaj was shown on the video screen in scenes reminiscent of the official music video during her verse. [16] Grande then performed a remixed version of "Bang Bang" with extreme lighting effects. Next, during "Greedy", fake money with Grande's face on it fell onto the audience. The song then transitioned into "Focus", during which the screen showed scenes from the music video. Grande ended the set with "I Don't Care" and exited as the band played an outro for the song.

The fourth part of the show started with Grande returning to the catwalk wearing a white bra and harem pants and singing "Moonlight" as she knelt in front of a celestial background and projections. [15] [16] Next was "Love Me Harder" and a reworked version of "Break Free" with laser effects around the stage. [16] [13] This was followed by "Sometimes", during which pink balloons fell from the ceiling. [16] Grande then sang "Thinking Bout You" as the video screen showed colored silhouettes of opposite-sex and same-sex couples. [16] There ensued an optional interchangeable section of the concert, followed by "Problem" with the stage dimmed to blue lights while the dancers carried big blue glow sticks, followed by "Into You", which concluded the main set. [15] For the encore, after a two-minute silence, Grande performed "Dangerous Woman", wearing a black latex dress, with red lighting and pyrotechnics on the stage. Grande thanked the audience and bade them farewell as the band ended the song. [13] [16] [15]

Critical response

The Dangerous Woman Tour received mostly positive reviews. For example, in a review for Las Vegas Weekly , Ian Caramanzana wrote: "Grande's burly, soulful vibrato and wide range remain the star of her show, and she's at her best when it's just her, a microphone and her band – especially when she performs ballads". [14] Ed Masley commented for The Arizona Republic that Grande has grown "into a self-assured R&B diva with the vocal chops to back up the confident swagger she brought to the stage. ... Vocally, Grande exuded more power and passion than ever, especially on the ballads". [13] Jon Pareles of The New York Times praised Grande for not resorting to shock value. He described the concert as "a show of confidence, prowess and aplomb. ... Onstage, Ms. Grande ... flaunts professionalism, not skin or profanities". [16] Billboard's Kristin Corpuz said of Grande's performance at Madison Square Garden: "She's showing off a more mature sound and edgier image. With outfits custom-made by celebrity fashion designer Bryan Hearns, Grande electrified the Madison Square Garden stage with her four-piece rhythm section and 10 backup dancers." [17] A Billboard report later commented of the last concert of the tour that Grande "more than delivered with her impressive vocal range, sultry dance moves, unstoppable energy and a whirl of costume changes. ... [Through her tour,] Grande has brought people together through music to love and support each other." [18]

In a more mixed review, Chris Kelly of The Washington Post thought that "her gorgeous four-octave soprano was often obscured by her bass-heavy backing band", but he described the show as "a pristine showcase of her immense vocal talent." [19] Dan Hyman of Chicago Tribune opined, "[A]side from a massive projection screen that lived behind the stage and stretched the width of the arena, the production seemed a bit cheap for a show of this scale. ... But it doesn't matter for this gifted singer: all Grande needs do to ... is dial back the bass and belt out some of her magnificent vocal runs." [20]

Manchester Arena bombing

On May 22, 2017, after Grande's show at Manchester Arena in England, an explosion caused the death of 22 concert-goers and more than 800 injuries. [21] Grande cancelled subsequent tour dates through June 5. [22] Grande organised a benefit concert, One Love Manchester, which took place on June 4 at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester, to aid the bombing victims and affected families. Various artists joined Grande for the concert. [23] Alfredo Flores, Grande's tour photographer, told Refinery 29 that, after the bombing:

Ariana was nervous, of course, but she was also excited to get back on the road, and so were we. We didn't want terror to win, we didn’t want to live in fear, because that's the whole point of terrorism. .... I can't say that if it was another artist they wouldn’t have continued with the tour, but I do know that Ariana is super, super brave. [24]
