Ariana Grande is ready to hit the road. After a tough few months, the pop star announced the long-awaited U.S. dates of her 2019 Sweetener world tour.

The tour is scheduled to kick off at Times Union Center in Albany, New York, on March 18. It will travel to cities including Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Miami and Atlanta before wrapping up at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 18.

Grande, 25, teased hours earlier on Twitter that her tour will coincide with the release of her fifth album. She released her fourth, Sweetener, just two months ago, but has been busy in the recording studio since the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and the end of her engagement to Pete Davidson.

When a fan asked the Grammy nominee how she made her next album so quickly, she responded, “how u think i survived these 2/3 months ksjsksjs ……… damn love u.” She also tweeted that music “fixes everythin.”

Grande has shied away from the spotlight since Miller died from a suspected overdose at age 26 on September 7. Later that month, the singer’s rep told Us Weekly, “Ariana is going to take some much needed time to heal and mend. She will be staying close to home and using this period to spend time with her loved ones and work on new music without deadline. She thanks her fans for their understanding.”

A month later, Grande and Davidson, 25, called it quits just four months after becoming engaged.

“[Miller’s death] put a tremendous amount of strain on their relationship,” a source recently told Us exclusively. “Pete loved Ariana and wanted it to work, but they’ve both had such tragic events happen in their lives.”
