Katy Perry has announced that her Witness tour will be delayed.
Initially, the singer was set to start her tour on September 7th in Ohio. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, it was delayed to September 19th, and will officially begin in Montreal.
Perry announced the postponement herself in a statement released online:
Due to unavoidable production delays, major elements of my tour stage design could not be available for me to rehearse on until this week. I’ll be spending the next few weeks taking the time to properly prepare the show to be an experience I am proud to share with you. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but hope everyone who sees the show will agree it was worth the wait. My first show on WITNESS: The Tour will be in Montreal on September 19.
To make up for the delay, Katy went ahead and announced the opening acts for her tour dates, which will defeinitely give her fans something to look forward to. Noah Cyrus will join the tour from September 19th - November 1st (my baby is rising!), Purity Ring will play from November 7th - December 20th, and Carly Rae Jepsen will be around from January 5th - February 5th.
