Sunrise Sports & Entertainment today announced that international superstar Katy Perry will bring her “The Prismatic World Tour” to the BB&T Center on Wednesday July 2, 2014. Perry returns to the BB&T Center after last performing at the arena on June 11, 2011. Capital Cities will perform as the opening act.
Citi® Cardmembers are able to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 10 a.m. through Citi’s Private Pass® Program. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets early via Facebook on Jan. 23.
“We’re thrilled that Katy Perry, one of the biggest international stars, has chosen to bring her new tour to the BB&T Center,” said VP of Event Programming Kevin Grove. “She always puts on a fantastic show for her fans and we couldn’t be happier to have her back for what is sure to be memorable performance.”
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.
