Ariana Grande opened her “Sweetener Tour” in Albany, New York this week and paid tribute to her late ex-boyfriend Mac Miller. According to those at the show, before she came out on stage some of Mac’s tracks, including “Dang!,” were played in the arena.
Mac wasn’t actually represented during the show, with Ari skipping such Mac-related tunes “ghostin” or “imagine,” noting it was "too heavy" for her to perform them. He was mentioned in her song “Thank u, Next," though.
As for the show itself, Ari stuck mostly to songs from her two most recent albums, “Sweetener” and “Thank U, Next,” although the set list did older songs like “Dangerous Woman,” and “One Last Time” and “Break Free.” She also used her microphone stand to do a little pole dancing during the show.
