SHE COMES ON WAY TOO LATE
Enough already of coming out at 9:30. We dont get more excited. Just more tired and dont enjoy anything. Why would someone think it's a good idea? It makes your fans sleepy. Not worth it

Ariana sounds amazing live. Her singing, and the band’s performance, is stellar. BUT the show is a bore. The dancers are a distraction, not an enhancement. There was ZERO performer-audience engagement. I was hugely disappointed with the live show.
Tanya from Phoenix, Arizona
She intentionally had low, bad lighting throughout the concert...likely lip-syncing!!! We couldn't even see her face the whole time and NO entertainment. Stage and light effects were very minimal. Dear Ariana, go pay to see Bruno Mars in concert and take notes...that's a beyond awesome singer/performer/entertainer/the whole enchilada!!!

TOO MUCH IDLE TIME
Waited about an hour for Social House to get on stage and then almost another hour before Ariana Grande to come on stage who showed up at 9:30. The concert ticket reads 7:30. This lapse in time made for a long and boring evening. What happened to opening acts performing until right up until the next performer?? There’s no doubt that Ariana Grande is very talented and has some great hits. However, I couldn’t get over the lag time and the fact that her stage looked like a toilet bowl from where I was sitting (in the 200’s) with ants dancing all over it. There were few people dancing in the seats, which I feel is expect from a young star. Ariana did show a lot of affection toward her dancers and musicians on stage giving them hugs at the end of her songs which was very sweet.

The sound was horrible. Nice place, clean, comfy seats but the rumble of the music not good. Special House openers were late started around 8:30pm and they sang only 20 minutes then wait another 40 minutes for Ariana Grande. She started around 9:40pm 🙈 My daughter loved the show and this is important for me because I went for her . I have enjoyed other concerts not this one.

GREAT VOICE, HORRIBLE PERFORMANCE
She started 2 hours late, didn’t engage with the crowd, was very boring. Acted like a diva. So disappointed, my daughter was too.
Disgruntled from Las Vegas, Nevada
WAITED 90 MINUTES PAST ADVERTISED START TIME
The show was supposed to start at 8 pm. At 9:30, after waiting around for 90 minutes, we gave up, left and threw away our tickets. Huge disappointment to wait that long for a show. But, it's Vegas. We left. Went and got a drink. Rescued the evening. No thanks to Grande who couldn't get her act together to show up on time.
