Ariana Grande at the TU Center

musician Ariana Grande

Update November 1: Tickets go on sale November 5 -- they're $34.95 and up.
It's true: Ariana Grande is set play a show at the TU Center March 18. It's the first top on her upcoming Sweetener tour.

Word of the show popped up this week when her website posted tour dates. A little bit oddly, though, the typical venue and ticket sale info didn't immediately follow. (These announcements are usually coordinated.) But on Friday the Times Union Center confirmed the date and posted a note: "Ticket prices and onsale information coming soon."

This will be a popular show. Grande is a huge star whose fame transcends music. Keep an eye out for when tickets go on sale if you'd like to go.

this has little to do with the posting, but I don't understand the ariana grande marketing photo. I seems to me to be distracting and foolish. And while I notice it, i don't find it enticing- turn the picture right-side up.

@J - Photos like this are meant to catch your eye. It clearly worked. :-)

@J- It's the album cover for Sweetener.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
