, Staff

Katy Perry has revealed plans for her highly anticipated “Prismatic” world tour. The pop superstar will kick off the 4-month North American tour in June and make her way to Massachusetts for a pair of performances at Boston’s TD Garden on Friday, August 1 and Saturday, August 2. Tickets for each of the shows, which range in price from $29.50 to $154, will go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Capital Cities will open each of the shows.

Prism, Perry’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s Teenage Dream, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 after its release in October. Three months later, it remains in the top ten. Prism has been powered by lead single and smash hit “Roar”, along with follow-up singles “Unconditionally” (streaming below) and “Dark Horse” (featuring Juicy J). She recorded the album in California and Sweeden with an array of producers including Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Klas Ã…hlund, Benny Blanco, Bloodshy, Cirkut, Greg Kurstin, Greg Wells,
StarGate and Sia Furler.

For the upcoming tour, Perry is promising a “state-of-the art” stage that she designed herself. Similar to previous tours by U2 and The Rolling Stones, the stage will include a special general admission area on the floor directly in front of the stage that will be surrounded by catwalks.
