Bellevue, Washington — March 24, 2016 — T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced that not one, but TWO, amazing artists will perform at the T-Mobile Arena Opening Celebration Concert in Las Vegas. On April 7, multi-platinum, GRAMMY®-nominated artist Nicki Minaj with special guest Ariana Grande will break in the new T-Mobile Arena and unleash an amazing Un-carrier celebration to officially open the stunning new venue.

Tickets will be available to the general public starting Monday, March 28th at 10:00 a.m. PT.

“What better way to open this amazing arena than with TWO amazing artists – Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande –and a few thousand customers and friends?” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “We un-leashed music and entertainment on your smartphone. Now, we’re taking that to the next level with T-Mobile Arena where T-Mobile customers get all the perks and can experience music and entertainment up close and in person!”

Located just west of the famed Las Vegas Strip, T-Mobile Arena will be the destination in Las Vegas for live events − from amazing music acts to thrilling sporting events − and will set a new standard for what entertainment means in the city that does it best. The 20,000-seat T-Mobile Arena is already scheduled to host exciting, world-class events with something for everyone − from high-profile awards shows and top-name concerts to UFC and title boxing events.

Grammy Award-nominated superstar Nicki Minaj stands at the top of the pop vanguard. Her two-time platinum selling and critically lauded third full-length album, The Pinkprint, arrived at the top of both the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts, cementing her as rap’s reigning queen. To date, the global superstar has sold over 55 million singles and 5 million albums worldwide. Minaj has also been the recipient of a bevy of awards including American Music Awards, MTV VMA’s, Billboard Awards, People’s Choice Awards, BET Awards, and many others.

Grammy Award-nominated Ariana Grande is the first woman in history and the first artist since Michael Jackson to simultaneously have three songs—”Problem,” “Break Free” featuring Zedd, and “Bang Bang” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie J—in the Top 6 of the Digital Songs Chart. “Bang Bang” went platinum and was Grammy-nominated for “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.” Ariana has enjoyed five Hot 100 Top 10 smashes. She also earned the distinction of becoming the first artist to debut in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 with the lead single from her first three albums. In 2016 she will release her mega-anticipated third full-length album, Dangerous Woman, driven by the title track which captured #1 on both iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and Top Pop Songs Chart minutes after release.

Ariana and Nicki have been in touch multiple times, as we’ve seen them perform onstage in many events! Who thinks we’ll hear Bang Bang, Get On Your Knees, and their new song on Ariana’s upcoming album Dangerous Woman?!

Taylor Swift talks about Ariana Grande in Rolling Stone

How did Taylor Swift and Sam Smith become BFFs? Well, it appears Ariana Grande played a large part.

Several months after the 25-year-old “Shake It Off” singer and 22-year-old British crooner Sam Smith, 22, met and performed together, they sat next to each other at the 2014 American Music Awards, which took place in November in Los Angeles.

The two were seen dancing side by side and cheering on several performers, including Grande, who sang a medley of her songs as well as “Bang Bang” with collaborators Jessie J and Nicki Minaj. Grande was seen doing a sexy little shimmy during her solo.

“We were front row watching Ariana Grande, loving her performance,” Swift told Rolling Stone in an interview posted on Wednesday and is featured in the magazine’s Feb. 12, 2015 issue, which features Smith on the cover.

“We’re both pretty animated when we’re watching other artists,” she said. “At the end of her performance, she did some dance move that was so sexy and so cool, and at the same time, Sam and I both screamed out “YAS BITCH YAS!!” and then looked at each other and died laughing. I had this feeling that we’ll be friends for life.”
