Ariana Grande's Mother and half-brother are standing amongst her New Zealand fans, cheering on the pop star as she rocks out at Auckland's Spark Arena. 

Tonight's concert is part of her six-month Dangerous Woman world tour.

Taking to Snapchat, Grande's half brother, Frankie Grande shared a video of him standing close to Joan Grande yelling out "bad b****" before turning the camera around and showing his sister up on stage, belting out one of her songs. 

As fans eagerly awaited the US singer to appear on stage, they lit up Spark Arena with their cell phones in anticipation before images of Grande getting ready appeared on the screens with a countdown clock. 

Thousands braved rainy weather conditions outside the arena, sheltering under umbrellas and donning rain jackets as doors opened for show the show at 6.30pm. 

Last night, Grande took to Instagram asking New Zealand fans if they were "ready for tomorrow" along with a photo of the Side to Side hitmaker sitting in a Dangerous Woman tour chair.

Throughout the week, Spark Arena have been posting on their Facebook page to advise fans about security measures that have been put in place. 

"We all know that we need to arrive early on Saturday and leave all out bags (yes, even the small clutch) and cameras at home," Spark Arena posted on Wednesday. 

"Since you guys may have a few things to carry, we've made life easier for you and ordered in some clear zip lock bags for you to store your things in while going through our security checks (security wanding and/or pat downs) on the night"

Spark Arena said by using snap lock bags, it will help to speed up the security process to get fans into the venue quickly. 

Earlier this year, twenty-two people were killed and dozens were injured in the suicide bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.
