The show will mark Grande's first return to Manchester since 2017, when she played the One Love Manchester benefit concert in response to the tragic bombing at one of her Manchester tour stops just two weeks earlier.

This week, Grande continues her streak atop the Billboard charts. Her new album thank u, next spends its second consecutive week at #1 on the Billboard 200. Last week, she held the top three spots on the Billboard Hot 100, making her the first artist since The Beatles nabbed the top five on the Chart in 1964.
