‘Thank u, Dublin’ – Ariana Grande waves goodbye to Ireland after three sell-out shows

She's leaving behind a lot of pleased Irish fans.

“Thank u, Dublin! Three incredible shows. I love u!”

Having touched down in Dublin almost a week ago today, Ariana Grande has finished her incredible stint at the 3Arena performing for three nights to over 36,000 fans.

From young pre-teens coated in glitter, attending the concert with doting parents to older groups of friends heading straight from work to the gig, Ariana provided stellar entertainment for all ages with a setlist that complies of chart topping hits.

The Sweetner world tour predominately featured her new album with some old gems like Break Free, Into You and Dangerous Woman getting all the crowd on their feet.

From the rapid costume changes to the beautiful set design, the whole show served.

Opening with God is a Woman and closing with Thank U, Next, Ariana highlighted her music success of the last year with those two tracks alone closing in on one billion views on YouTube.

Her performance also paid tribue to her family whose images featured in a slideshow during the show as well as the LGBTQ community, as she closed the show by waving pride flags alongside her dance troop.

Another subtle tribute was paid to the late Mac Miller, Ariana’s former boyfriend who past away earlier this year after an ongoing battle with drug addiction.

Just before she came to the stage, Mac Miller’s track was the last one which was played while fans got to their seats.

Notably missing from her setlist was One Last Time. One Last Time was the final song the 26-year-old played before the terriorst attack at her Manchester Arena concert in 2017 which saw 23 people including the suicide bomber loose their lives.

The star apparently sang One Last Time for part of this year’s Sweetner tour however, removed it in May as it was making her “too emotional”.
