At age 15, singer Ariana Grande landed a role on Broadway in “13,” and the next year, she starred on Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” as Cat Valentine. Now the 21-year-old pop singer takes the 12,000-seat stage at Mandalay Bay Events Center for The Honeymoon Tour on Saturday, Aug. 29.
Grande’s first full-length album, “Yours Truly,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200, Billboard Digital Albums Chart and iTunes Overall Albums Chart. Her pop hit “The Way,” with Mac Miller, hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and reached No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart.
That was two years ago. She was named best new artist at the American Music Awards the same year, and in 2014, Grande became the first woman and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs in the top six of the Digital Songs Chart. She even managed to star in the Nickelodeon movie “Swindle” along the way.
Some of her biggest hits include “Love Me Harder” with The Weeknd, “Best Mistake” with Big Sean and “Problem” with Iggy Azalea.
She recently earned two Grammy Award nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album for “My Everything” and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Bang Bang” with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj.
Latin star Prince Royce joins Grande as a special guest.
Tickets start at $44.50.
