(Los Angeles, CA- June 8, 2017) Due to overwhelming demand, Katy Perry has added additional dates to her WITNESS: The Tour.  The North American leg of WITNESS: The Tour produced by AEG Presents will make a stop in Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 7:00 PM.

Tickets for the Grand Rapids concert go on sale to general public, Friday, June 16 at 12 PM. Tickets prices are $49.50, $79.50, $99.50, and $129.50, and tickets will be available at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place® box offices, online at Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. A purchase limit of eight (8) tickets will apply to every order, and prices are subject to change. Members of Van Andel Arena’s email list will have access to an exclusive presale on Thursday, June 15. Sign up by June 13 to receive access here. All U.S. concerts on WITNESS: The Tour are presented by Xfinity. Additional sponsors are Citi, COVERGIRL and KATY PERRY PARFUMS. See below for itinerary or visit http://katyperry.com. Additional tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

With Witness, Katy finds liberation, in the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that inspire both thought and movement. The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, and the new singles, “Bon Appétit” featuring Migos and “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness.

Citi is the official U.S. credit card of WITNESS: The Tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, June 13 10AM local time through Thursday, June 15 10PM local time through Citi’s Private Pass® program. For complete pre-sale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com. 

"Having just launched a new national advertising campaign with Katy, we're thrilled to extend our relationship to encompass the upcoming Witness Tour," said Jennifer Breithaupt, Global Consumer Chief Marketing Officer, Citi. "Citi cardmembers will have exclusive access to pre-sale tickets for what promises to be one of the biggest and most memorable tours of the year."

            WITNESS: The Tour follows Katy’s sold-out, 151-date Prismatic World Tour, which concluded in 2015 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as "a show to damage retinas and blow minds."

Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Firework” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter.
