Ariana Grande just kicked off her Sweetener world tour last night and the concert definitely left her ‘feeling thankful and energized.’ The stop was in Albany, New York and the audience filled the singer with a lot of good vibes.
As you know, the superstar has been through a lot and she’s managed to cope to the best of her ability but Ariana supposedly believes she just couldn’t have done it without the support of her loyal fans.
It took her months to prepare the experience that was last night’s show and a source tells E! News that her drive to do that is because of her wish to create ‘something special for the fans as a way to thank them just for being there for her through her highs and lows throughout last year.’
They went on to dish that ‘With all the focus on her personal life, Ariana’s felt additional motivation to put on her best show possible to remind critics and fans of her strengths as an artist and performer.’
Of course, despite hours and hours of rehearsals in the dance studio, Ari couldn’t help but feel a bit nervous anyway, the source said.
Still, ‘opening night jitters,’ are normal, and she welcomed them, as always.
Besides, she had her brother and close pals there for her.
Speaking of, the insider noted that Ariana’s ‘friends and family hope that she can now breathe a sigh of relief after a great first night.’
The tour is also doing wonders for Grande’s mental health as it has been filling her with positivity.
Lately, Ariana has just been ‘in a great place mentally and emotionally!’
