Ariana Grande Takes Coachella Seriously


It looks like Ariana Grande has rescheduled nine of her tour dates, cancelled two of them, and added a new one in order to accommodate her Coachella performances in April as a last-minute replacement for Kanye West. This proves that the 25-year-old singer is dedicated and wants to make sure that her two weekend-closing sets in the desert are meticulously planned and executed well.


The Sweetener World Tour would have forced Grande to travel back and forth across the United States on both weekends, giving her almost no time to prepare, rehearse, or rest. Here's what her touring schedule would have looked like:

Grande's newly restructured tour dates gives her a massive window from April 6th to April 24th with her only dates being at Coachella on April 14th and April 21st. Her North American leg now ends in July instead of June and it's bad news altogether for ticket-holders in Omaha, NE and Raleigh, NC as those cities will not received rescheduled dates. Additionally, Las Vegas, NV was just added and is scheduled for May 11th. The Sweetener World Tour still kicks off on March 18th in Albany, NY with support from Normani and Social House.


This isn't the first time a headliner was replaced last-minute. In 2017, Beyoncé's name was already on the lineup poster as the Saturday headliner, but had to reschedule for 2018 when she announced that she was pregnant with twins. Lady Gaga graciously filled in with just a few week's notice and still delivered an astonishing set.
