Ariana Grande made her highly anticipated return to Manchester over the weekend to perform at Manchester Pride. This is the second time Ariana has been back to the city since a terrorist attack killed 22 people at her concert in May 2017. The singer returned to Manchester two weeks after the attack on June 4th, 2017 to perform a benefit concert in support of the victims, but since then has avoided returning to the city.

The 26-year-old made her return to Manchester for the city’s Pride weekend concert. As the headline act, her set was highly anticipated by fans and members of the LGBTQ+ community. However, some Pride goers were left disappointed after they were refused entry to Ariana’s set before it started. Fans took to Twitter on Sunday night to complain that they weren’t allowed into the Mayfield Depot venue after 7pm despite the fact that Ariana’s set didn’t begin till 10:25pm. The fans insisted that an entry cut-off point was never explained to them.

However, the Machester Pride official Twitter account tweeted on Sunday afternoon that the last entry to the concert would be at 7pm that evening.

Fans were also outraged to learn that the “Thank U, Next” singer would only perform for a 30-minute set, despite being the headlining act. The complaints come after there was outrage at the price of Pride tickets following Ariana’s headline announcement back in February.

Ariana took to the Manchester stage for the first time in over two years on Sunday night and addressed the crowd by saying she was “nervous” and “overwhelmed,” before taking a minute to say she wanted to thank the crowd “for so many reasons.” She has yet to address the issues with her set.
