Two months after Katy Perry announced the initial dates of her international Prismatic tour, the pop superstar has revealed her full North America itinerary. Perry will kick off the run on June 22 in Raleigh, N.C., and visit 46 cities in four months.
Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara will serve as the opening acts on various legs of the arena run. Over in the U.K., where the Prismatic tour will begin on May 7, Icona Pop will serve as the opener.
Musgraves, the country singer-songwriter nominated for best new artist at the upcoming Grammy Awards, previously performed with Perry at the We Can Survive benefit last October, and subsequently shared a songwriting session with Perry. Tegan and Sara also performed at the event, along with Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding and Bonnie McKee.
"Writing with Katy was a fun joining of worlds and a good song came out of it," Musgraves told Billboard last month. "I love when brains come together with different colors and influences to throw into the mix. We're fans of each other, so it works and was an awesome experience."
Perry's North American tour will be presented by Goldenvoice, and pre-sale tickets begin for Citi card members on Jan. 21. On this week's Hot 100 chart, Perry's latest single, "Dark Horse" feat. Juicy J, climbed two spots to a new peak at No. 4.
