Katy Perry Announces North American Tour Dates Like Only She Can

Big, big news for Katycats: According to the Huffington Post, Katy Perry has just announced a major North American tour, which will take her across the continent from North Carolina to California to Canada over the course of about five months.

Perry made the announcement on YouTube, by first tweeting out, "What do @capitalcities, @KaceyMusgraves and @teganandsara all have in common?" before adding, "They're all coming with me on THIS: http://youtu.be/RiNF6iOjRgs. ARE YOU?" The YouTube link redirects to the announcement video, which specifies that earlier this month, Perry asked her fans on Instagram to "describe their #PrismaticCity." What follows is a series of fan submitted videos, along with the tour info and dates. Keeping with the theme, the tour will be titled "The Prismatic World Tour 2014."

As Perry's first tweet suggested, the tour will not only feature songs from her old albums and her most recent album, Prism, but also Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves, and Tegan & Sara are set to tour with her throughout the event.

If you're interested, tickets are set to go on sale later this month, with a Citi pre-sale beginning on Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. local time, and a Facebook pre-sale on Jan. 23 — but more details about this will be announced soon.
