The tour will also include two dates at London's O2 Arena as well as dates in Birmingham, Glasgow and Dublin.

She has revealed that she will perform a special show in Manchester, although details have not been announced at this stage.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on December 21.

Although a Manchester show is not yet included in the dates, the singer yesterday confirmed that special plans were underway for her return, after 22 people were killed by a suicide bomber following her show at the city's Manchester Arena venue in May 2017.

The singer wrote in an Instagram post: 'Manchester is not on this initial list because we are planning a special show. We need a bit more time getting things together before we can announce that date but we are of course coming and we love you.'

It's also not known how the concert will differ from the rest of the tour shows.

Two weeks after the Manchester Arena atrocity, Grande hosted a benefit concert in memory of the victims, which saw Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Liam Gallagher, and more play Manchester's Old Trafford cricket stadium.
