The Honeymoon Tour is Ariana Grande's sophomore tour in support of her sophomore studio album My Everything, which was released on August 25, 2014. Rixton serve as Ariana Grande's opening act in North America and Europe, along with Cashmere Cat only in North America.

BackgroundEdit

On June 4, 2014, Ariana signed a contract for her tour and announced that the tour wouldn't just be the United States.[1] She later revealed that the tour would start in February 2015.[2] She later revealed that she would be visiting Brazil on the tour during an MTV Twitter takeover.[3] On September 5, 2014 Ariana announced the first set of tour dates through a new fan app called Fahlo.[4] She revealed the first 26 dates and cities.

TriviaEdit

  • About 7 weeks before the tour started, Ariana created a Youtube channel called Honeymoon Diaries, where she would be posting videos related to the tour and rehearsals.
  • VIP fans who purchased Meet & Greet tickets got an Ariana Grande bag with bracelet and light up cat ears.[5][6][7]
  • The Meet & Greet was set up like a photo booth so fans got to go in (2 at a time) and take 3 pictures with Ariana that were printed out.[8][9]
  • Ariana's dogs Toulouse and Sirius went with Ariana on tour but the rest of her dogs did not as they don't like traveling.[10]
  • During "Best Mistake" Ariana stands on a fake cloud that gets lifted up over the stage.[11]
  • She was almost crushed by a lift while performing Love Me Harder on the opening night.
  • Big Sean joined Ariana on tour on March 7, 2015 in Detroit. He rapped his verses in "Best Mistake" and "Right There" and they kissed on stage.
  • Justin Bieber joined Ariana on stage on March 28, 2015 in Miami and they performed "Love Me Harder" and his songs "All That Matters" and "As Long As You Love Me".[12] He also came back on April 8, 2015 in Inglewood, California.
  • Ariana got a "honeymoon" tattoo written out in cursive on the side of her right middle finger.

Set listEdit

Ariana said that they tried to fit as many songs from My Everything and Yours Truly as they could but they couldn't play every song. Ariana and her crew also confirmed that they put an "old song" that was a "fan favorite" in the setlist ("Pink Champagne").[13] She also used Mi.Mu Gloves during one of her songs.
