Kiwis to hear Katy Perry's roar
It's every teenager's dream - Katy Perry will be coming to New Zealand in December.
The singer will perform two Auckland shows at Vector Arena on 19 and 20 December.
The Roar and Teenage Dream singer will come from Australia, where she is performing 23 shows on The Prismatic World Tour.
The last time Katy Perry was in New Zealand she sold out two Vector Arena shows in Auckland and one TSB Arena show in Wellington.
The tour is in aid of her album PRISM, which debuted at number one when it was released here in October last year.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am on 6 June, with pre-sales available from 9am on 3 June.
The Australian leg of Perry's Prismatic World Tour has sold out, and New Zealand will be the last leg of a tour that is taking in more than 40 venues across the US, the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico and Australia.
The show is being promoted as a "visual extravaganza," with lavish production and a state-of-the-art stage that brings Perry closer to her fans.
Swedish singer Tove Lo has been announced as a supporting act.
Perry, who released her first album Teenage Dream aged 25, has won 11 Grammy awards, and holds the record for the most weeks in the singles charts ever.
She suggested she might be coming our way in Feburary, tweeting that New Zealand tour dates will be announced soon. "And don't worry, New Zealand... I'm coming to see you kiwis too! Dates announced soon."
When Perry was last in New Zealand in 2011, one person at the Wellington gig was hospitalised after scuffles to get closer to the singer.
At the time, a St John spokeswoman said some of the attackers were wearing stiletto heels, and appeared to have been using them as weapons.
