Katy Perry Postpones ‘Witness Tour’

Published: Thursday 17th Aug 2017 by Sam

It’s been a year of peaks and troughs for Katy Perry and it looks like the bumps have yet to smooth all the way out.

Indeed, despite wins with her $25 million American Idol pay-packet and #1 album with ‘Witness,’ her popularity seems impaired, she’s slim on hits and even more starved of record sales.

Now, drama has struck her tour.

Dive below for details…

In a message to fans, Perry revealed that she’s had to postpone the start of her ‘Witness Tour,’ which was originally due to launch on September 7th.

The reason? “Production delays”. Peep her full explanation…

Some will be raising eyebrows at the much touted excuse, given that ticket sales have been so soft in select cities that promoters are doing 2-for-1 deals and selling seats for as little as $8.

Still, if it’s any consolation for fans, Noah Cyrus, Purity Ring, and Carly Rae Jepsen are joining the trek’s American leg. *Crickets*

    I feel shes being sabotaged because bon and swishsh is my or maybe ppl really just moved on

    • Wonder Woman stan August 17, 2017

      Yup Folks just moved on, not every popstar is meant to last 20 years and counting. She should scrap this tour which is yet a another flop waiting to happen and use those last thread of relevancy to get herself a Vegas deal or something.

    • ??? August 17, 2017

      no, she’s not sabotaged, she’s just over lmao.

    Every pop star is just a hit away from bring it back. She released bad songs from the album. Scale down the tour, cheaper tickets, and the next album is more like her first album, Katy hundson lol. No but like one if the boys album, a little rock, edgy, attitude and acoustic . at least try to act like she cares about her talent then.

    She will be fine and her tours have been a huge success, specially in Europe and Brazil.

    Bad timing. Gaga was center of attention with all her live performances snatching wigs over the last year and peaking at the SB. How was Katy going to compete with the performances she did to promote this era? Add those flop singles to the mix and you end up with Cancelled/Delayed/$8 shows. I have tickets to see Katy and I’m low key hoping she cancels so I can get my money back lol

    Poor thing, this is what happens with so many pop acts. They have to know how fickle the pop audiences are at this point. You reach a certain age and it’s all downhill.
    This has more to do with Katy’s poor choice of singles and her team overestimating her popularity, nothing to do with Gaga who’s also holding on by a string with her recent flop album and singles ? just saying!
    She’s rich, if she invested well she’ll be fine, she might even come back from this disaster era.

    • JanStan August 17, 2017

      WYD?? Obviously not checking Gagas box scores. I hope those string she’s hanging on to can support her SOLD OUT TOUR WTF?

    Noah Cyrus? I’m screaming!

    • Fancy BISH August 17, 2017

      CRINE ?

    Lady G is doing great. She earned a top 4 hit single with a ballad that actually sold a million pure copies. Her album is actually gold. And she did this without having typical pop songs.. Her tour is doing great as well. Katy didn’t overestimate anything. She does have a huge fan base.. None of her singles were hits.. Scaling down the tour/discounting her album & promoting a few more singles would probably work for her..

    • MessyBoots August 17, 2017

      I agree. Plus, like many stated before there is a possibility she could still make a comeback. They all said Britney was finished after Blackout and her hospitization and she proved them wrong on both Circus and Femme Fatale. Katy s next moves are critical though. You cant flop back to back after only 3 successful albums.

  12. Mase August 17, 2017

    Gaga is actually doing very good. Selling out shows and Million Reasons is a platinum hit. IT seems that even with not so mainstream songs she still can stick around.

    • Datredd23 August 18, 2017

      Where would she be without super bowl hype though? Million Flops was doing nothing before she performed it at the Super Bowl she needed all that promo

    Who TF even are these opening “Acts”?
    It deserves to flop, No one is going to this shitt show
