Fargo will be one of 46 cities visited by Katy Perry during her latest tour later this year.
The “PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR,” which starts on June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina, will be held in support of the artist’s latest album, “PRISM.” The album in question debuted at number one on The Billboard 200, and has managed to hold position in the top 10 for three months since its release. The album features several incredibly popular tracks, including “Roar” (the artist’s biggest-ever single) and “Dark Horse,” her thirteenth single to hit the top ten on The Billboard Hot 100.
Fargo citizens can hear these songs and more live on Aug. 23 at the Fargodome.
“’THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR’ is coming to light up some of my favorite North American cities this summer, as well as some new cities that you introduced me to through your video requests” Perry said in a press release regarding the tour. “This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, ‘PRISM’. I’m so excited that I got to hand-select some of my favorite artists to join me on this journey – I know you’ll love Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara as much as I do.”
Each tour appearance will be displayed on a custom stage designed specifically for the tour. The set is designed to allow the singer “to get closer to her fans than ever before,” the press release explains. This is likely a reference to the “intimate” Reflection Section, where a limited number of concert-goers will be able to view the performance.
Because the show is being sponsored in part by Citi Bank, Citi Private Pass Program members have been able to pre-purchase tickets since last Tuesday. However, as of today erstwhile fans can also purchase a limited number of tickets on Facebook. To get details and a password for the Facebook pre-sale program, go to http://bit.ly/kp_presale.
Those unable to attend the Aug. 23 performance might be interested in another nearby sighting. On Aug. 22, there will also be a tour stop in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Target Center for impatient Midwesterners.
Ticket prices for each performance range from $29.50, $47.50, $82 to $102 depending on date of purchase and seating. If you’re averse to Facebook, or not a Citi Bank customer, you can also purchase tickets through more traditional methods, including through www.KatyPerry.com.
Perry is just one of many high-profile artists coming to the Fargo-Moorhead area this year. Earlier it was announced that Justin Timberlake will also be performing in town in February, while Electric Six (who are obviously less well-known, but more to this writer’s tastes) will be appearing at the Aquarium on March 19.
Just a few weeks in, and 2014 is already shaping up to be a great year for music in the Fargo area.
