Welcome back, Katy Perry!
After giving us a tease of what she’s been working on with “Chained to the Rhythm” and “Bon AppÃ©tit,”Â Katy PerryÂ is finally releasing an album this summer.
Witness,Â dropping June 9th via Capitol Records, is a reflection on the changes in Katy’s own life and in the world around her. WitnessÂ delivers songs that both challenge and inspire with many musical and thematic elements.
In addition to releasing the album, Perry also announcedÂ WITNESS: The Tour, Â which will be an extensive arena tour throughout North America. Produced by AEG Presents, the tour will kick off on 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.
