Katy Perry to tour UK
Updated: 19 November 2013
Katy Perry will be touring the UK in 2014 with her “The Prismatic World Tour”.
The UK leg of Katy Perry’s tour will start at the Belfast Odyssey Arena on 7 May 2014 and then continue to Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and London.
Katy Perry is to land in the UK next summer with her bigger and better tour in support of her latest album “Prism”.
Katy Perry will be joined by Icona Pop for the UK part of her Prismatic world tour. Icona Pop are the duo responsible for the hit “I Love It”, which charted at No.1 in the UK singles chart.
The Prismatic tour also has a few quirky traits that we have come to expect from Katy Parry including a unique standing pit in the front of the stage named “The Reflection Section”. The section will enable fans to get closer to Katy Perry than ever before.
Katy Perry’s Prism album scored her second No.1 album in the UK, with the first single Roar spending nine weeks at the top of the UK chart. The second single, Unconditionally, is due to be released on 16 December.
The success of Prism follows a staggering few years for Katy including previous success with her Teenage Dream album that landed Katy Perry six Grammy nominations. What followed was Katy Perry’s tour “California Dreams”, which saw Katy Perry tour the world and was documented in her "Katy Perry: Part of Me" documentary.
The popularity of Katy Perry also saw her bag the headline spot at this year’s Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball. It is one of the most anticipated pop events of the year.
About Katy Perry
Known for outrages outfits, a tongue-in-cheek attitude and cheeky lyrics, Katy Perry caught the attention of audiences in 2008 with the chart topping single “I Kissed A Girl”.
The song propelled her into the limelight as a cheeky, fun loving pop princess but her back story was actually quite different.
2001 saw the release of her debut album under her real name Katy Hudson. The album was a far cry away from the Katy Perry people know today. Based on her Christian past, the album was a collection of gospel songs.
The album remained pretty much unheard, which saw Katy change her name from Katy Hudson to Katy Perry on her road to becoming the pop princess that she is today.
She then started to work with Matrix, a production and song writing team, with the idea that she was to be one of the two singers in their group. However, the project was shelved and eventually cancelled.
During this time she made it onto the cover of Blender magazine, which hailed her as the next big thing in 2004. It turns out they were quite right.
Katy Perry’s big break eventually came in 2008. She signed with Capitol Records in 2007 who promoted the pop image seen today and she then released her debut single “Ur So Gay”. The single sparked some interest but it wasn’t until “I kissed A Girl” followed that a pop icon was born.
