24th July 2018
With her new album Witness, Katy reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire. The singles released thus far – the Platinum-certified “Chained to the Rhythm” featuring Skip Marley, the follow-up single “Bon Appétit” featuring Migos and “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj – hint at the breadth of the musical and thematic elements found on Witness.
“Bon Appétit” is officially Katy’s fastest viewed music video of all time with 14.2 million views in the first 24 hours – now approaching 190 million! The single was #1 Most Added at Australian Radio in its first week.
In Australia, Katy has enjoyed 4 x No. 1 singles and 12 x top 5 singles. Her singles have achieved 60 x Platinum status in Australia with an additional 2 x Gold singles.
Katy made her EMI Music debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Firework” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks.
This tour is Katy’s first run since the sold-out, 151-date Prismatic World Tour, which was hailed by Rolling Stone as “a show to damage retinas and blow minds.” Katy played a staggering 23 shows across Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane on the Australian leg of the tour.
Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY promoted Katy’s 2014 Australian tour and said today, “The response we received from the 2014 tour was phenomenal. Katy is one of the most powerful entertainers in the world and I am delighted to be promoting her 2018 Australian tour.”
