Ariana Grande to headline Lollapalooza 2019 as her Sweetener World Tour dates are shuffled

It looks like Lollapalooza has a headliner in Ariana Grande.

The Boca Raton, Florida native, 25, was tabbed as as the headliner for the music festival, which takes place August 1-4 at Chicago’s Grant Park, Variety reported Monday.

The announcement comes more than a month before Lollapalooza participants are revealed, according to the outlet. The festival’s 2018 headliners included Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Jack White and Travis Scott.

Grande was recently announced by Coachella’s promoter, Goldenvoice, as a performer amid a loaded 2019 lineup that includes Childish Gambino, Solange, Diplo, Janelle Monae, Tame Impala and Weezer, among others.

Insiders told the publication that the festival was in talks with Grande’s camp for months, well before the songstress was invited to perform at Coachella after the festival’s talks with Kanye West ended over staging issues.

Grande’s camp recently rescheduled a number of dates set for her Sweetener World Tour amid the commitment to Coachella, as eight tour stops in April have since been steered toward the summer months, with two canceled amid the singer’s packed schedule.

The shows in Omaha and Raleigh have been canceled while dates in Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus, Milwaukee, St. Louis, St. Paul, Denver and Salt Lake City have been rescheduled for June and July. 

Grande has also signed on for an additional show at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 11.

The Dangerous Woman beauty is set to embark on the road beginning March 18 in Albany at the Times Union Center in what will mark her third tour in the past four years, after her first two made more than $109 million combined, Pollstar reported.
