This will be Perry's first tour since her 2011 "California Dreams" romp – and, naturally, she is planning an elaborate spectacle. According to a press release, the singer is utilizing a "state-of-the-art stage," designed by Perry herself, that "will provide concert-goers with a truly magical experience from every angle in the arena." To get truly intimate, fans will need to purchase a general admission ticket in the glamorously titled "Reflection Section."

“This colorful show will bring you all the songs you know as well as ones from my new album, PRISM," Perry says in a statement. She added, "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."

Citi cardholders will be granted access to ticket presales starting Tuesday, January 21st at 10 a.m. local time through the Citi Private Pass Program; an early sale will also take place through Facebook on January 23rd. Details are available at Perry's website.

"Ian's influence seemed to be madness and insanity," said Joy Division guitarist Bernard Sumner -- who, with his surviving bandmates, carried on as the worldwide successful New Order.
