Ariana Grande performs "No Tears Left To Cry" at the Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 20, 2018, in Las Vegas. The singer is scheduled to headline Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City on April 22.

SALT LAKE CITY — The first leg of Ariana Grande’s “Sweetener World Tour” was announced on Thursday, and it’s coming to Salt Lake City.

Kicking off March 18 in Albany, New York, the “Sweetener World Tour” comes to Vivint Arena on April 22, according to a press release. The tour’s first leg includes 42 shows at arenas across the country, concluding with a June 18 show at Madison Square Garden.

Grande’s most recent album, “Sweetener,” was released in August and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Two of the album’s singles, “No Tears Left To Cry” and “God Is A Woman,” have cracked the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. “Sweetener” has received favorable reviews for its musical surprises, with Grande trading in the high-octane pop of her previous album, “Dangerous Woman,” for more low-key, trap-influenced material.

The new tour marks Grande's return to touring since the bombing at her Manchester Arena show last year, which killed 22 people and injured more than 800.

The pop star has also been in the news for her engagement to — and recent separation from — “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson. (There’s even a song on “Sweetener” called “Pete Davidson.”) And her previous boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, was found dead at his home on Sept. 7.

Tickets for the “Sweetener World Tour” are available to American Express card members beginning Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. through Nov. 3 at 10 p.m.
