One of the fastest rising stars of the last five years in entertainment has been Katy Perry. After a humble start to her singing career, Katy has become one of the biggest draws in the industry and has cranked out an impressive selection of number one hits in just a short period of time. A true entertainer, Katy Perry tickets sell out immediately as fans clamor for the chance to see in her live and hear her music in person.
Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, she chose the stage name Katy Perry and began her singing career as a teenager in 2001. Her initial pursuit was a career in gospel music and she even released a debut solo album in that genre in 2001 entitled Katy Hudson. She followed that up with a collaborative effort with The Matrix and recorded another solo album, but the solo effort was never released.
Katy Perry tickets were not a popular item throughout much of the early 2000s until the release of her smash hit single "I Kissed a Girl." That single was released in late 2007 after Perry signed a recording contract with Capitol Records that April. Her second album, One of the Boys, was released in 2008 and followed by her third album, Teenage Dream, in 2010.
At this point Katy Perry's career was skyrocketing quickly. Two songs from her third album, "California Gurls" and "Teenage Dream," hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts before the album was even released, and would later be followed by "Firework," "E.T.," and "Last Friday Night" which all reached number one as well. That album became the first from a female recording artist to crank out five number one hits and just the second album ever to do so after Michael Jackson's Bad did so in 1987.
Fans who have purchased Katy Perry tickets over the years have witnessed firsthand the evolution of her musical style. Her original albums were deeply rooted in pop music, but over the years her albums have grown to include a greater mix of music crossing over numerous genre lines. Her third album, for instance, features a variety of disco, electronic, funk, and hip hop inspired music alongside her more traditional pop and rock sounds.
Katy's first tour took place in 2001 when she was a co-headliner on the Strangely Named Tour. She followed that up with another co-headlining appearance on the Warped Tour 2008 and was an opening act on the No Doubt Summer Tour 2009. Following the release of her latest albums, she has hit the road on headlining tours in 2009 (Hello Katy Tour), 2011-12 (California Dreams Tour), and most recently in 2014 on the Prismatic World Tour.
Her latest tour will kick off in Belfast, Northern Ireland on 7 May 2014 and include several early dates in Scotland and England before she returns to play venues in the United States and Canada during the summer of 2014. A portion of all Katy Perry tickets sold on this tour will to benefit charities including UNICEF, Autism Speaks, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.
