Katy Perry has announced a small delay in her Witness tour’s original North American dates.

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.”

In addition, Katy announced the openers for her tour dates! Noah Cyrus will join the tour on September 19 – November 1, followed by Purity Ring on November 7 – December 20 and Carly Rae Jepsen on January 5 – February 5.

    Judging by recent performances and reviews, maybe it’s better to keep delaying it as this is shaping up. From what we are hearing, this is going to be like every other tour she has done – loads of props and stuff happening on stage to take away from the fact she sounds awful live.

    they all sound awful live. That’s why they have pre-recorded vocals at every show.

    Mariah Carey used to sound amazing live… and i think Beyonce sounds live but i really don’t think she sings live all that much either.
