Over the last five years Katy Perry has become one of the biggest music stars in the world, and now her Dallas fans will finally get another chance to see her when her Prismatic World Tour makes a stop at the American Airlines Arena on October 2. (UPDATE: Perry has added dates in multiple cities, including Dallas on October 3 and Houston on October 11.)
The tour, which kicks off June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina, will hit 46 cities in the U.S. and Canada, including the tour finale in Houston on October 10. Perry promises a unique experience with her stage set-up, which includes the so-called "Reflection Section," with general admission seats close to the stage.
The tour is named after her 2013 album Prism, which has so far yielded one massive hit, "Roar." The song, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Sara Bareilles' "Brave," spent two weeks atop the Billboard charts and was nominated for Song of the Year and the Best Pop Solo Performance at the upcoming Grammy Awards.
Perry, who had a famous split with comedian Russell Brand, has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with serial celebrity dater John Mayer since 2012. That relationship is currently in the on-again mode, and the two even recorded the romantic duet "Who You Love" for Mayer's latest album.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday, January 21, through the Citi card Private Pass Program. There is also a pre-sale through Facebook starting January 23; check Perry's Facebook page for more details as that date gets closer.
