With her California Dreams tour in the rearview mirror, Katy Perry is presenting her “PRISM” era to the masses on the just-announced PRISMATIC world tour. The pop superstar shared the first dates of the 2014 global trek on Twitter early on Monday morning (Nov. 18).
Perry’s international smile will start shining on May 7 in Belfast, and will continue across the United Kingdom throughout May. Icona Pop will support Perry on the run, after signing on to support Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz world tour from Valentine’s Day through Apr. 24.
“DON’T WORRY – more GLOBAL tour dates coming soon! I can’t wait to get closer to ALL of you than ever before!” Perry wrote on Twitter on Monday morning. Tickets for these first dates go on sale this Friday (Nov. 22) at 9:00 am.
Perry’s California Dreams international trek, which logged over 120 dates between February 2011 and January 2012, clocked in at No. 13 on Billboard’s Top 25 Tours of 2011, with a total gross of $48.8 million in 2011, per Billboard Boxscore. That tour was in support on Perry’s sophomore album “Teenage Dream,” which spawned a record-tying five No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Last month, Perry’s third album “PRISM” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 286,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album’s second single, the ballad “Unconditionally,” climbs four spots to No. 21 on the current Hot 100 chart.
