‘Ariana Grande: Excuse Me, I Love You’: Release date, plot and all you need to know about Netflix's The Sweetener World Tour film
The world tour concert film seems to be the new trend and it's catching up with a lot of musicians. After we saw global musicians such as Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes and Blackpink dropping their respective world tour concert films on the streaming giant Netflix, it is now pop sensation Ariana Grande who is all set to release her concert film.
The 27-year-old pop star took to her official Twitter account to announce the concert film of her The Sweetener World Tour. She shared an 8-second video to announce the title along with the caption which read, "Dec 21st, a year after closing, the sweetener world tour is coming home to u @netflix @netflixfilm #excusemeiloveyou." As the tweet reveals, the world tour concert film has been titled ‘Excuse Me, I Love You'.
The Sweetener World Tour was the fourth concert tour by the ‘Positions’ hitmaker. The tour commenced 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 comprising of 101 shows went to North America and Europe. It was also the first time when during a tour, Ariana did not visit Asia or Latin America.
The tour received both critical and commercial success while grossing $146.6M from 97 shows. Interestingly, The Sweetener World Tour also got nominated for People's Choice Award for Favorite Concert Tour and Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer Tour.
Ariana’s ‘Excuse Me, I Love You’ concert film on Netflix will be released on December 21, 2020. What a great way to end the year. Wondering what time will it be out on Netflix? The special drops at 12 am Pacific Standard Time or 3 am Eastern Standard Time.
Although Ariana has not spilled the beans on the plot, we can assume fans will get a closer look at the much-acclaimed The Sweetener World Tour. The singer shared a heartfelt note on her Instagram account while announcing the project. Writing to her 208M followers on the photo-sharing app, she said, “Releasing this as a love letter to u all, in celebration of all that we’ve shared over the past few years. I know this project only captures some of one tour (out of all the other hundreds of shows and moments we have shared over the past six or seven years… Jesus lol) but I just wanted to thank u all for showing me more in this lifetime already than I ever dreamed of making music and doing all of this has been all I’ve known or fully given myself to consistently for a very long time now.”
The American singer further said, “Although my heart is looking forward to a change of pace, I wanted to express again just how eternally thankful I am. I’ve learned, seen, and felt so much. It’s been such an honor to share so much of this life with u.”
We are also hoping to get a glimpse of some raw footage from backstage. MEAWW will keep you posted with all the details as soon as they are revealed officially. For the unversed, the name ‘Excuse Me, I Love You’ for the concert film is taken from the lyrics of her single ‘R.E.M'.
Cast and Crew
Since, Ariana has just announced the world tour concert film, the details on the cast and crew are still awaited. Of course, Ariana will be the lead but it will also be interesting if we get to see a few other musicians joining her on stage. MEAWW will keep you updated on the same.
