Pint-sized popstar Ariana Grande, a.k.a. owner of the world’s most famous ponytail, will be making her Hong Kong debut this September.
The 23-year-old singer will be visiting Hong Kong as part of the Asian leg of her Dangerous Woman tour, following concerts in Manila and the F1 Grand Prix in Singapore. All tickets for her AsiaWorld-Expo performance on Thursday, September 21, are standing only. Pre-sales are available for Grande’s fan club members (10am, May 16 to 11:59pm May 17), Citi Card holders (10am, May 18 to 11:59pm, May 19), and Live Nation Lushington members (10am to 11:59pm, May 19). Tickets will go on general release at 10am on Monday, May 22 on HK Ticketing.
General tickets will cost HKD888, while VIP passes (with early entry, a merch bag, membership to her fanclub, and whatever a VIP laminate is) will cost HKD2,888, and extra-special/expensive VIP passes with all the aforementioned goodies plus a meet-and-greet and photo op with Grande, backstage tour, and signed poster, will set you (or more realistically, your parents) back a whopping HKD4,888.
For a little preview of what you can expect from Grande this September (besides her killer Celine Dion impression), here’s the title track from her Dangerous Woman album:
The former child star, who made a name for herself on Nickelodeon show “Victorious”, has become a popstar in her own right in the past few years, with three albums under her belt and a massive fan following. She’s been dubbed the “new Mariah Carey” or “mini Mariah Carey” based on her wide vocal range, musical style, and (perhaps less flatteringly) diva-esque behaviour. She’s also an outspoken feminist, which is worth quite a few marks in our book.
