Katy Perry will release her new album Witness on June 9 via Capitol Records. She also announced an extensive North American Arena Tour. Presented by Xfinity, it kicks off September 7 at Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH. The run will include two New York City shows – October 2 at Madison Square Garden and October 11 at Barclays Center – plus an evening at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on November 7 and a December 20 concert at American Airlines Arena in Miami. The tour will resume on January 5, 2018 at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.
With Witness, Katy reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire. The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified Chained to the Rhythm featuring Skip Marley and the follow-up single, Bon Appétit featuring Migos – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness. Each ticket purchase for WITNESS: The Tour also includes a copy of her album, Witness.
Jim Clark, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America said, “Katy Perry is one of the most powerful and famous entertainers in the world, and Boys & Girls Clubs of America is one of the most powerful youth development organizations in the country. We share a commitment to improving the lives of young people through education, empowerment, and demonstrating good citizenship, and are excited to provide her fans with the chance to connect with Clubs while giving them an opportunity to win a chance to see her in concert.”
