Ariana Grande Plays Mac Miller's Music Before Taking to the Stage at Tour Opener

February 15, 2019

Ariana Grande is paying props to Mac Miller on her newly debuted Sweetener tour. According to many Grande fans who attended the tour's first show in Albany, New York, on Monday night, the late Miller's music was playing inside the Times Union Center before Grande got onstage. "Ariana Grande is playing Mac Miller right before her opening song for sweetener tour right now and my heart can’t handle it. SO MANY TEARS," one fan wrote on Twitter, while another tweeted, "Aaaaand they’re playing Mac Miller at the Ariana Grande concert. Not emotional no no no not at all." While People notes that it's unclear which of Miller's songs were played, the outlet adds that Grande has repeatedly paid tribute to her ex since his death in September 2018. Two months ago, she tweeted "Miss you" on the morning of what would have been Miller's 27th birthday.
