Ariana Grande

The Honeymoon Tour is the second concert tour and first international tour by American recording artist Ariana Grande in support of her second studio album, My Everything (2014). The tour, which was officially announced on September 10, 2014, will travel across North AmericaEurope, and Asia. It began on February 25, 2015 in Independence, Missouri and will conclude on October 15, 2015 in El Paso, Texas.

Along with the lighting and video, there was enough room in the budget for special effects including seven custom high power laser projectors provided and operated by Strictly FX.

Timothy Finn of The Kansas City Star gave Grande praise for her energy and enthusiasm when singing and dancing along with her crew. Finn described the show as an “extravagant mix of music, dance, lasers, videos, pyrotechnics, and costume changes, akin to the kinds of audio-visual spectacles delivered by fellow pop-divas like Katy Perry and Britney Spears.”
