Only Clear Plastic Bags Will Be Permitted at the Ariana Grande AT&T Center Show on Friday

If you’re headed to the Ariana Grande show on Friday, May 17, at the AT&T Center, you might be asked to throw your purse in the trash.

Yup. According to Grande’s camp, fans attending the singer's Sweetener World Tour may bring one clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag measuring up to 12” x 12” x 6”, but the tour will say “thank U, next” to anything outside those parameters.

Which basically means you'll either have to abandon your bag and its contents or see if someone in line's got an extra Ziplock for ya.

Though it wasn't addressed in the press release, it's easy to speculate that this policy comes as a result of Manchester bombing attack following Grande's show two years ago to the month.

Wallets will be allowed at the AT&T Center for the show, but opaque pouches and wristlets within a clear bag will not be permitted. Exceptions will be made for medically necessary items after a thorough inspection. Fans are encouraged to bring their own clear bags, including one-gallon plastic freezer bags, to the concert.

Also, if you’re trying to go Grande’d out, officially licensed Sweetener World Tour clear bag merchandise is available at
