Katy Perry Announces ‘Witness World Tour’ Opening Acts But Delays Start Date

Witness: The Tour was supposed to kick off in Columbus, Ohio on September 7, but due to production delays, the start date has been pushed to Montreal, Canada on September 19. In all, six shows were affected. Ticketholders unable to attend the rescheduled dates can get refunds if they can no longer attend.

“Due to unavoidable production delays, major elements of my tour stage design could not be available for me to rehearse on until this week,” the 32-year-old said in a press release. “I’ll be spending the next few weeks taking the time to properly prepare the show to be an experience I am proud to share with you. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but hope everyone who sees the show will agree it was worth the wait.”

Witness: The Tour is being billed as “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.”

Not all news was bad for Katy fans. The “Swish Swish” singer announced her opening acts. Noah Cyrus joins Perry from September 19 through November 1, while Purity Ring and Carly Rae Jepsen warms up the crowd on November 7 to December 20 and January 5 through February 5 respectively.
