Thank U, Next: LeRoy Bennett Designs Ariana Grande’s Sweetener World Tour

Ariana Grande launched her Sweetener World Tour on March 18 in support of her fourth and fifth studio albums, Sweetener and Thank U, Next, with production and lighting design by LeRoy Bennett who worked closely with the artist on her vision for the show. The creative team went through three separate versions of the design before settling on the current delicate design, featuring lighting from Upstaging, video from PRG/VER, audio from Clair Global, and scenic from Tait.
