Top moments to watch in Ariana Grande’s Manila concert

Smart Music Live brings Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour finally to Manila on Aug. 21 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Fans can only expect a grown up Queen Ari music and character-wise.

According to, “Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour pushes the 23-year old in a bolder direction.” Said to be the artist of the moment after showing the world how exactly to bounce back following the horrific Manchester tragedy when she did the tour there, Ariana will continue to spread love and music when she sets foot in Manila.

YOUNG DIVA. American singer Ariana Grande brings her "Dangerous Woman" tour to Manila 
Apart from Dangerous Woman, Smart Music Live also brings to Manila Oasis’ Liam Gallagher (Aug. 14); In the Mix featuring 5 Seconds of Summer, Two Door Cinema Club, Dua Lipa, Zara Larsson, Daya and DNCE (Aug. 17); and Ed Sheeran on Nov. 7.

Here are some of the best moments to look forward to when Ariana takes full control of the Manila concert scene:

String of hits. Those who have seen Dangerous Woman have been raving about her fast numbers, those hits that come with the complete package Ariana is known for: power vocals and phenomenal choreography. This is expected to happen when she strings these hits together: “Side To Side,”  “Break Free, “ “Into You,.” and “Dangerous Woman.”

Stage visuals. They say expect the works in an Ariana concert… from fireworks to fiery hot dancers and an even hotter choreography. Pyrotechnics is a staple in Ariana concerts along with laser lights, confetti drops and rising platforms.

Outfit changes. Another concert fixture for Queen Ari are spot-on fashion and costume changes. Expect local celebrities to put on their best impressions of Ariana Grande. The artist’s previous tours are always packed with Hollywood celebrities in the audience so the Manila stop wouldn’t be much different; it will have local “stars” in full attendance.

Feminist interlude. Girl power is also one of Ariana’s strong suits. With what happened at her Machester concert and how she was able to epitomize how to rise after such a tragedy with the One Love show and the way she has been getting in touch with the victims of that horrific act of terror, whether in person or via her social media, definitely adds more to Grande’s feminist causes. Ariana isn’t just growing up in front of her fans these days. She’s showing up to be a role model, not a very common thing to find in pop stars these days.
