Katy Perry Adds Second Philly Show, 8/5
Due to an overwhelming demand, 11-time GRAMMY® nominated recording artist, and international superstar Katy Perry has added a second show (in addition to her previously scheduled Monday, August 4 date) at the Wells Fargo Center as part of her highly anticipated Prismatic World Tour. The newly added date is on Tuesday, August 5.
Perry 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.
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 No. 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 No. 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 Perry'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.
The state-of-the art stage, specifically designed by Katy for THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR, allows her to get closer to her fans than ever before. The one-of-a-kind set design will provide concert-goers with a truly magical experience from every angle in the arena. Ticket offerings include a limited number of general admission tickets in the intimate “Reflection Section”.
