Katy Perry to Kick Off Prismatic World Tour at PNC Arena
(RALEIGH, NC) – International superstar, Katy Perry, will kick off the North American leg of her highly anticipated PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR on June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The 46-city tour is presented by Goldenvoice, a division of AEG Live. She will be touring in support of PRISM, which debuted at number one on The Billboard 200 and remains in the Top Ten three months after release. The platinum album has given Katy her biggest ever single with "Roar," while "Dark Horse" just became her lucky 13th Top Ten hit on The Billboard Hot 100.
Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara will open for Katy in different markets during the 4-month North American tour.
"THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” said Katy. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM. I'm so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey - I know you'll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do."

The 11-time GRAMMY® nominated singer cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at #1 in 8 countries and spent over two years on Billboard's Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have 5 #1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night"). The special edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, added "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake" to Katy's list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008's One of the Boys, which generated four hit singles: "I Kissed A Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Thinking of You" and "Waking Up In Vegas"). THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is Katy's first tour since 2011's sold-out California Dreams Tour, which was the subject of 2012's 3D feature film, Katy Perry: Part Of Me, the fifth biggest music documentary of all time.
