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
Lady Leshurr
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
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)

I would go but it's crazy expensive and I'm already seeing Ari in Sheffield & Birmingham sad.gif.

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.
