(full schedule below). To support her platinum-selling sophomore album Teenage Dream (EMI’s Capitol Records), Katy will kick off the California Dreams tour on February 20th in Lisbon, Portugal, traveling throughout Europe, the UK, Australia and Japan before hitting stateside in June.

Katy is planning on interacting with fans through social media networks throughout the California Dreams tour.

Fans’ will also be able to submit their own photos of the show via Twitter which will be incorporated into the live show and also live on katyperry.com.

As announced last week, Katy will perform at this year’s Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 13th. Six-time nominee, Katy is up for four awards this year including the coveted Album of the Year, along with Best Pop Album, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Teenage Dream” and “Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg. Katy has also been nominated for two BRIT awards for International Album and International Female Solo Artist. The BRIT awards will be handed out live on February 15th at the O2 Arena in London.

Teenage Dream was released in August, 2010 and has since sold 5 million copies world-wide. The album’s first single, “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg was the biggest selling song of 2010 according to Soundscan with 4,398,212 tracks scanned. After “California Gurls” spent six weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Katy scored two follow-up No. 1’s, with “Teenage Dream” and her current single “Firework,” making her the first female artist in 11 years to score three Billboard #1 singles from the same album.

Katy is gearing up to launch the album’s 4th single “E.T.” which will impact radio next month. She will soon shoot the video with director Floria Sigismondi (Marilyn Manson, Bjork, David Bowie, Christina Aguilera, Muse, The White Stripes).

Earlier this month, Katy won two People’s Choice Awards for “Favorite Female Artist” and “Favorite Online Sensation” — awards voted on by fans. Katy won a People’s Choice Award in 2009 for “Best Pop Song” with her debut anthem “I Kissed A Girl.” Over the course of her career, she has also won a BRIT Award, two MTV Europe Music Awards, an NRJ Music Award, and two Teen Choice Awards, among other international honors.

Over the past year, Katy has graced the cover of Rolling Stone, Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Harpers’ Bazaar, Seventeen, Nylon and Lucky and currently appears on the cover of Maxim’s January issue.

    BOO! No Las Vegas?



  2. 2

    Who the fuck would pay to see her live? She can't sing live worth shit and she's got two left feet. She made me want to stab both my eyes and ears out on her SNL appearance.



  3. 3

    aw, she's a cutie but she's more of a youtube gal, not someone you see live. She dances like Carlton from the fresh prince of bel air, or all the white people in "Sixteen Candles", that's not the type of shit you want to watch live.



  4. 4

    who would want to see her live. Bitch CANT SING live. She is awful on all the award shows.



  5. 5

    the cat's out of the bag now that her dancers are talking to gossip blog-the trick's been padding her bras up more than a cup size and her boobs are saggy. False Advertising, just like her face without makeup looking homely.



  6. 6

    She's gonna pull a rihanna. rihanna does well in radio and video mediums, but no one wants to watch her do anything live and her concerts never sell. Same with Perry, people are fine watching her shoot frosting out of her tits on youtube for free, but no one's going to watch her sing like a dying cow and walk around knocked kneed and pay for it.



  7. 7

    wohooo! Dallas! :D i sureee will pay to see her, ppls.



  8. 8

    she seems like a nice girl but her voice is just so fucking bad live, and that's her just standing at a microphone for five minutes for one song. WTH is she gonna do for a two set concert? her voice can't handle it, she has no stage presence. I mean, the only pop stars you bother seeing are people like janet jackson or britney spears. They suck singing live too, but they put on a show and know how to perform and entertain. This girl has no mojo on stage whatsoever.

    Re: lilnino – oh shit, she does dance like a carlton! lol



  10. 10

    she can't sing or dance and has no stage presence-who's gonna pay to see her live?

  12. 12

    GREAT… MORE LIP SYNCING AND LIP DANCING. BRIT BRIT 2.0 HERE WE COME.



  13. 13

    thanks for the warning



  14. 14

    Re: mariabella89 – white girls who can't dance and live lonely lives who actually this trick is crazy and funloving.



  15. 15

    NO SAN DIEGO??????



  16. 16

    Well, let's hope she learns to sing before June 7th……



  17. 17

    So the Coachella lineup is boring but a a lip synching tour deserves so much praise. Music is not your thing Perez, just stop it.



  18. 18

    I'm going but just to see Marina. I love her!



  19. 19

    I love Katy Perry, but I'm sorry. I would not pay to hear her sing live.



  20. 20

    What?!, no Washington D.C.??..who doesnt come to the capital of the country on tour?..booo katy, I really wanted to see you!



  21. 21

    Someone did the porn world a great disservice when they told her she could sort of sing…



  22. 22

    Re: heygirlheyx716
    hey, she's playing in Maryland on June 15th which is very close to DC. It is crazy she's not doing Vegas. Seems like the perfect place for her.



  23. 23

    No. Just no.



  24. 24

    I love Marina and Robyn but theres no fucking way I'm paying a ton of money for Katy Perry.



  25. 25

    she better bring marina and the diamonds to boston BETTER
