Performer Info

Katy Perry: First she kissed a girl and liked it, then she turned a little Hot N Cold, before Waking up in Vegas. Last, but perhaps most important, she is really and truly one of those California Gurls. She is of course, the inimitable Katy Perry, and she's on tour right now. Use Eventful to track Katy Perry tour dates both in the U.S. and internationally.

Born and raised in Santa Barbara, California, by Christian pastor parents, the guaranteed to be sold-out Katy Perry tour dates of today were barely a glint in the eye of the would-be superstar as she grew up listening to and singing gospel music almost exclusively.

Such an upbringing is a far cry from the massive club hits, fun - sometimes even risqué pop songs, false eyelashes and outlandish outfits which earmark Katy Perry tour dates these days. With fans the world over, the Katy Perry concert schedule is a busy one. To date, she has touched down in more than 24 different countries, and with the announcement of each new Katy Perry concert schedule, it seems that the number of appearances and size of venues played, continues to increase. Indeed, the most current set of Katy Perry tour dates will see the star travel across the U.S and Canada, South America, the UK and Europe, Asia and Australia. At this stage in her career, and with the success of both her 2008 and 2010 albums, One of the Boys and Teenage Dream behind her, the eye-catching young performer that is Katy Perry has definitely proven herself to be much more than a one hit wonder. And it seems that few are immune to her charm: the star managed to win over an unlikely fanbase off the back of 47 Katy Perry tour dates as part of 2008's Warped Tour.

Despite the ongoing Katy Perry tour dates and concert schedules being a force onto themselves, the starlet still manages to find time to engage herself in other mediums and entertainment-related activities. In 2010 alone, she appeared as a guest judge on both the UK’s X Factor and American Idol, as well as playing herself on Sesame Street and The Simpsons. In between Katy Perry tour dates, the young singer also found time to host the MTV Europe Music Awards - twice.

In 2013, Perry released her fourth studio album, Prism, to no shortage of enthusiasm on the part of fans and critics alike. The album featured a darker tone, which the singer admitted was due to her recent breakup with husband Russell Brand. The singer's more serious side didn't affect the exciting debut of the album, which shot to the top of the Billboard charts. With Perry back to her old self after some personal setbacks, fans are excited to see the return of the infectious, bubbly star they've come to love.
