Tickets to Katy Perry’s fall Tulsa show go on sale Monday
The international superstar is planning a return trip to the BOK Center Oct. 6 on the North American leg of Katy Perry’s “Prismatic World Tour.”
TULSA — Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday Jan 27 for Katy Perry’s fall show at the BOK Center.
The international superstar is planning a return trip to the Tulsa venue Oct. 6 on the North American leg of her “Prismatic World Tour.” The 46-city tour kicks off June 22 in Raleigh, N.C., and Tulsa is among the final domestic dates currently on her itinerary.
Perry will be touring in support of her 2013 album “Prism,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and remains in the top 10 three months after its release. The platinum-selling album has given Perry her biggest single to date with “Roar,” while “Dark Horse” recently became her lucky 13th top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
Tegan and Sara will open for Perry in Tulsa, while Capital Cities and Kacey Musgraves will join her in different markets during the four-month North American tour.
“‘Prismatic World Tour’ is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” said Perry, in a news release. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM. I’m so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey — I know you’ll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do.”
Ticketd are priced at $29.50, $48, $82.50 and $127.50.
Tickets will be available starting Monday morning online at www.bokcenter.com or katyperry.com, at the Arby’s Box Office at the BOK Center, at all ticket outlets, or by phone at (866) 726-5287.
The trek will feature a new state-of-the art stage, specifically designed by Perry for the tour. Ticket offerings will include a limited number of general admission tickets in the intimate “Reflection Section,” according to the release.
Perry again is teaming up with Tickets-for-Charity to offer fans some of the very best seats in the house to benefit important charitable causes, available exclusively at www.ticketsforcharity.com. Additionally, $1 from each ticket sold for the North American leg of the tour will be donated to UNICEF, according to the release.
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 more than two years on Billboard’s Top 200 album sales chart. She became the only female artist to have five 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 Perry’s list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multiplatinum 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 3-D feature film, “Katy Perry: Part Of Me,” the fifth-biggest music documentary of all time. The “California Dreams” trek included an April 2011 stop at Tulsa’s BOK Center.
