If you’re excited to hear “Baby” and the rest of Ariana Grande’s new music, then you are in luck, for Ariana has just announced that she’s heading out on tour to debut her new album!

Just yesterday she tweeted, “Excited to announce that I’m going on my 1st tour “The Listening Sessions” this August. :)

She added, “It’s called Listening Sessions because we’re playing only a few intimate venues & you’ll get to hear the music live before the album is out.”

Below is the list of venues and dates for “The Listening Sessions”:

However, if Ariana isn’t coming to a city near you this time around, you will still have a chance to see her on tour!

As she explained via twitter, “Don’t worry, down the road we’ll be playing more places. This is just the start, the 1st branch is just about introducing u to the music. :)

So whether you’re able to see her perform live this summer, or have to wait until a little longer for a larger tour, are you excited to hear Ariana’s new music?
