2008 breakout star Katy Perry will headline her 1st tour!
Gripping tight to her hit singles "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot N Cold", Katy's tour will hit up smaller, 1,000 to 2,000-seat venues, and will even include an 11 concert European leg.
"Our philosophy has always been to sell places out," says CAA's Mitch Rose. "We set the ticket price at $18-$20 for most markets, because we wanted to ensure a sellout. We could have charged more and we know we're leaving money on the table, but making sure the rooms were packed was our 1st priority."
And their 2nd priority was putting on a good show?
"I have the guy who creates stages for Madonna working on this tour," Katy told Billboard.
"I understand diva-ness, but I cultivate an image as the pop star next door. You need to have some mystery and some privacy, and there are parts of me that I hold back."
Katy's tour kicks off tonight, Jan. 23, at the Showbox in Seattle.
