, Staff

Katy Perry has revealed plans for her “California Dreams” world tour, which will make its way to Massachusetts this summer. The California-based pop star will play Boston’s TD Garden on Saturday, June 18. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $37.50 to $47.50, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. Marina & The Diamonds will open the show.

Perry will be touring in support of her platinum-selling sophomore album Teenage Dream. The album’s first single, “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg was the biggest selling song of 2010 according to Soundscan with 4,398,212 tracks scanned. After “California Gurls” spent six weeks at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Perry scored two follow-up # 1’s with “Teenage Dream” and her current single “Firework”, making her the first female artist in 11 years to score three Billboard #1 singles from the same album.

Following her show in Boston, Perry will play the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Saturday, June 25. Tickets for the show are $45 and go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Perry is planning on interacting with fans through social media networks throughout the California Dreams tour. Using Facebook Places/Deals, fans will be able to check into the venues each night to receive special treats. Fans will also be able to submit their own photos of the show via Twitter which will be incorporated into the live show and also live on her official website.

Perry received four Grammy Award nominations this year including the coveted Album of the Year, along with Best Pop Album, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for ‘Teenage Dream’ and Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg. She’ll also perform at the ceremony, which CBS will televise live from Los Angeles on February 13.

Last month, Perry was in Massachusetts for a headlining set at Kiss 108’s Jingle Ball at the Tsongas Center in Lowell.
