    After canceling some appearances and taking some time away from the public eye, Ariana Grande is going on a world tour.

    The singer announced the “Sweetener World Tour” on Twitter Thursday afternoon.

    The 42-date tour starts in Albany, New York, March 18. American Express cardholders can access presale tickets Nov. 1-3.

    Billboard reported that more information on general public tickets will come at a later date.

    The “Sweetener World Tour,” in support of Grande’s latest album of the same name, comes at a time when the singer said she is emotionally ready to get back on the road. In May 2017, 22 people were killed in a bombing after her Manchester Arena concert. Grande has said she’s had more issues with her anxiety since the attack. 

    “Sweetener” is her first album since the bombing.
