Click here to watch a special tour announcement video. WITNESS: The Tour is an imaginative trip from outer-space to inner-space, from the planets to the bottom of our oceans, and a musical journey through Katy Perry's biggest milestones and mega-hits right up to her latest album. The dramatically original staging means that there isn't a bad seat in the house, when Katy brings out her band and dancers, along with all the bells and whistles.
Katy Perry adds opening acts for her highly-anticipated WITNESS: The Tour, Purity Ring. Purity Ring is an electronic pop duo originally from Edmonton, Canada. In 2012 they released debut album Shrines; a choesive, beguiling and wholly unique universe of what the band called 'Future Pop.' At the center of the amniotic swirl of Shrines was an undeniable nucleus of crystalline pop which presciently suggested both indie and popular music to come. Critics were effuisve: 'Best New Music' from Pitchfork and praise from New York Times, Rolling Stone, and NPR among others. They quickly amassed a rabid fanbase, toured relentlessly and sold out shows worldwide.
