New York—Pop superstar Katy Perry has announced a series of brand-new U.S. dates on her California Dreams 2011 World Tour. The new shows commence on September 7, following on the heels of the summer North American leg of the tour, which kicks off Stateside on June 7, in Atlanta and runs through August 14, with two shows in Katy’s Santa Barbara hometown. Katy just wrapped sold-out dates in the U.K. before heading to sold-out shows in Australia , New Zealand and Japan in May. North American dates feature a rotating group of exciting openers, including Robyn, Janelle Monáe, and Marina & The Diamonds. DJ Skeet Skeet performs on all dates.
In addition, Katy has partnered with Tickets-for-Charity to offer special access to some of the best seats in the house on the California Dreams Tour. A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will benefit three charities that Katy has selected: Generosity Water, The Humane Society of the United States , and the Children’s Health Fund. To date, her fans have raised over $100,000 in charitable donations. A limited number of premium seats benefiting these great causes are available now for select tour dates on www.ticketsforcharity.com. Katy is also inviting local Red Cross representatives to her UK shows to collect donations and is donating the proceeds from a light wand sold at the shows to the Red Cross, raising over $20,000 to benefit those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
