I thought this deserved its own thread away from the 'Sweetener / Thank U, Next' tour as it's a pretty big deal in itself!

It's a little over 2 months now until Ariana Grande will be performing for Manchester again, this time in the name of Pride as a headliner.

Are you planning to go? Do you support this move from her? What do you want her to perform?

Here is the full line-up:

Saturday 24th August
Years & Years
Kim Petras
Louisa
Lady Leshurr
Youngr
Gok Wan
Basement Jaxx [DJ set]
HEDKANDI 20th Anniversary Tour
Freemasons w/ Katherine Ellis
Jodie Harsh
K-Klass Live
Sink the Pink DJs
Rhythm of the 90s

Sunday 25th August
Ariana Grande
Bananarama
Pixie Lott
Nicky Siano's: Hallelujah Disco
Becky Hill
Four of Diamonds
Chelcee Grimes
Faithless [DJ Set]
Hercules and Love Affair
Bongos Bingo
We Love Pop

I'm personally not going (I've been interested in going to some kind of pride event for years as an ally with my LGBTQ+ friends though) but that line-up does look pretty amazing - Ariana, Basement Jaxx, Faithless etc *.* There was some backlash about the announcement but Ari is a well documented LGBTQ+ ally so I think it feels appropriate for her to be headlining, especially considering the location. It would be amazing to see her singing 'no tears left to cry' just because that song is so full of hope. I think 'Break Your Heart Right Back' would also be an inspired setlist inclusion (in the sense that it's a pretty old song in her repertoire) for the 'I'm Coming Out' sample and subject matter.

(I do hope that Manchester fans get at least one more event though as previously mentioned in the other tour thread)

While Manchester is so much easier for me to get to than Birmingham, I couldn't justify going to this as I wouldn't go usually and I feel it would be wrong and against the spirit of the event to do so just to see her.


I remember she did mention of twitter a few months ago that she was going to announce something else during pride. I don't know whether that's still happening or not. She did recently announce new US shows so hopefully she might do one in Manchester.

I don't know if people are trolling or not, but it's what I've seen on Twitter sad.gif.

Id have thought 30/45 minutes seemed quite normal tbh because of how many acts are on the bill.

I wasnt expecting it to be length of the arena shows.

So wish I was there though sad.gif

Ariana set is being cut short due to the demand of a longer Pixie set

She was absolutely incredible, she was so overwhelmed it seemed but she put on such a good show! Highlights being 'One Last Time' and '7 Rings'! wub.gif

Also, Cheryl f***ing KILLED IT and I'm not even a fan! I was so shocked! Bananarama bored the life out of me and Tulisa/Becky Hill were really good too - especially the N-Dubz medley - iconic!

ari was incredible. so glad she did brought one last time back, was such a moment. the whole set just gave me such feeing of togetherness and like we're all in this together which i think is gonna be the case any time she plays in mcr now. no word on if she's coming back for any other mcr dates i thought she was meant to be announcing something @ pride..?

Glad you guys had such a good experience of seeing her <3 to add on to what Lee said above, I saw on Twitter that admission to the area where Ariana was singing at closed at 7pm or something, for security reasons, so some people who paid for tickets didn't even get to see her?! Oh nooo sad.gif

The 'One Last Time' clips that are floating around are stunning heart.gif

Cheryl doing GA songs and Tulisa N-Dubz ones omg what kind of paradise

The people complaining about the 7pm restriction are doing the MOST. They advertised as clearly as they could everywhere that they wouldn't let anyone in past 7pm, so I don't get why they're moaning?!

It was organised really well and it's just the GP moaning for the sake of moaning yet again.
