International superstar Katy Perry will bring her Prismatic World Tour with special guest Kacey Musgraves to Quicken Loans Arena at 7 p.m. Aug. 14.
Her 46-city tour is presented by Goldenvoice, a division of AEG Live.
She will be touring in support of Prism, which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and remains in the top 10 three months after release. The platinum album has given Perry her biggest single with "Roar," while "Dark Horse" just became her 13th top 10 hit on The Billboard Hot 100.
More information regarding on-sale dates will be announced soon.
"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. "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."
The state-of-the art stage, specifically designed by Perry for this tour, allows her to get closer to her fans than ever before. The one-of-a-kind set design will provide concert-goers with a truly magical experience from every angle in the arena.
Ticket offerings include a limited number of general admission tickets in the intimate "Reflection Section."

"We are ecstatic to have teamed with Katy around the release of her number-one smash album Prism, including featuring her hit single 'Roar' in our television advertising," said Jennifer Breithaupt, senior vice president of entertainment marketing, Citi. "After working with Katy on a highly successful launch event benefit at the Hollywood Bowl and seeing our customers' delight at her exclusive pre-show experience, we are thrilled to partner with her on the Prismatic World Tour and know our customers will not be disappointed."

The 11-time Grammy-nominated singer cemented her status as a best-selling superstar with the global success of her second studio album, Teenage Dream, which debuted at No. 1 in eight countries and spent more than two years on Billboard's Top 200 album sales chart.
She became the only female artist to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart ("California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T." and "Last Friday Night"). The special edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, added "Part of Me" and "Wide Awake" to Perry's list of nine Top 40 chart-toppers (dating back to her multi-platinum debut album, 2008's One of the Boys, which generated four hit singles: "I Kissed A Girl," "Hot N Cold," "Thinking of You" and "Waking Up In Vegas").
The Prismatic World Tour is Perry's first tour since 2011's sold-out California Dreams Tour, which was the subject of 2012's 3D feature film, "Katy Perry: Part Of Me" -- the fifth-biggest music documentary of all time.
