Ariana Grande's world tour kicked off at Times Union Center in Albany, New York on Monday night. The show saw the live debut of material from new album thank u, next, as well as a host of her older hits, but the night was also remarkable for a new initiative from Grande and voter registration organization HeadCount.

Together, Grande and HeadCount are hoping to register the thousands of fans who come to the tour to vote in the 2020 election. A picture from a fan shows one of the booths at the Times Union Center which featured a riff on "7 Rings" saying: You like my rights? Gee thanks, just voted."

Explaining their aim via Twitter, HeadCount wrote: Together, we designed #thankunextgen, a program to help Ariana’s fans make their voices heard." They're looking for volunteers at her upcoming shows.



Grande's tour continues across North America over the coming months. In April she will headline Coachella for the first time. The Sweetener tour hits Europe in August.
