Ariana Grande's 'Excuse Me, I Love You': Fans say watching the film is like being back at 'Sweetener' concert
Fans are losing sleep and left in tears with Ariana Grande's new concert film following her 'Sweetener World Tour'
The highly-anticipated Ariana Grande concert film, ‘Excuse Me, I Love You', has just dropped on Netflix. Featuring the 'Rain On Me' songstress in all her glory, her loyal team of dancers and more, the film follows Grande during her Sweetener World Tour.
The Sweetener World Tour was the fourth concert tour by the ‘Positions’ hitmaker. The tour kicked off on March 18, 2019, in Albany, New York, at the Times Union Center and concluded on December 22, 2019, in Inglewood, California, at The Forum. The tour comprised of 101 shows and went to North America and Europe. It was also the first time when during a tour, Ariana did not visit Asia or Latin America.
In 'Excuse Me, I Love You', Grande delivers breathtaking on-stage performances and flawless vocals (no lip-syncing or autotune needed there) to songs like 'God is a Woman', REM', 'Bad Idea', 'Be Alright' and many more. Much like the audience going ballistic at the tour, fans on Twitter who are watching the film are pouring out comments. "F**k I AM CRYINGGG," exclaims a fan, adding, "@arianagrande excuse me, i love you." A fan who attended 'The Sweetener World Tour' wrote, "I’m watching the excuse me, I love you and I swear it’s like I’m back at the concert. so pure Ariana @ArianaGrande @netflix #excusemeiloveyou #SweetenerWorldTour." "I just finished watching Excuse me, I love you on Netflix and omg i love it sm. I cried and laughed and it's just the best. @netflix @ArianaGrande," shares a fan.
Even though the film premiered during the early hours of the morning (3.00 am EST), US audiences held back their sleep to watch it. "Stayed up until 2 am just to watch excuse me, i love you soooo here we go <3 @ArianaGrande @netflix." says a fan. One fan described the film as "a gift that just keeps on giving" while another called it "life-changing."

Sadly, Ariana Grande had to cut 'Successful' from the film to make room for her collaborative track with Victoria Monét, 'Monopoly'. A disappointed fan comments, "I know @ArianaGrande didn’t bypass successful in excuse me, i love you. THE DISRESPECT."

Fans have certainly been enjoying albums 'Thank U, Next' and 'Positions', but watching 'Excuse Me, I Love You' easily has us returning to the feelings of hype for her 'Sweetener' LP. There's also a bittersweet sense to it if ever you've yearned for an Ariana Grande live concert which has been limited by the pandemic. Nevertheless, the film's editing and sound production is beautifully put together to resonate the same experience.
