There’s Some Good News & Some Bad News About Katy Perry’s Witness Tour

By  | 

Okay, guys — we’ve got some news on Katy Perry‘s Witness World Tour, and not all of it is great… but some of it is, we promise!


As the 32-year-old “Swish Swish” singer was gearing up for her upcoming performances, she went on Instagram yesterday to share a few updates with fans. Since we always prefer to hear the bad news before the good news — always wanna end on a positive note, you know?
— Katy shared that she has to postpone the tour a few weeks due to production issues.

In a screenshot of her phone’s notepad, Katy wrote, “Due to unavoidable production delays, major elements of my tour stage design could not be available for me to rehearse on until this week. 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.”

SOME ?? NEWS AND SOME ?? NEWS but I promise we're gonna be ??

The tour was originally scheduled to begin on September 7 in Columbus, but will now begin on September 19 in Montreal. Katy acknowledged the inconvenience by sending emails to the fans in the cities where the show dates were rescheduled that said, “To my wonderful fans in Buffalo, I’m very sorry that we could not find a rescheduled date that worked. If possible, I would love to see you in Toronto.”

So it’s not the worst news in the world, but kinda sorta sucks for fans who had tickets for one of the postponed shows that won’t be able to be rescheduled in that same city.


But turn that frown upside down because there’s still good news! Katy also announced that three special guests will be joining her on tour including Noah Cyrus, Purity Ring and Carly Rae Jepsen. Noah will be with Katy September 19 through Nov 1, Purity Ring will take the stage from November 7 through December 20 and Carly Rae is slated for January 5 through February 5.

So, hey, all’s well that ends well!
