Katy Perry's New Album Is Called Witness and It's Getting This Massive Arena Tour
Katy Perry is having quite the week already! The Grammy Award winner not only announced her new album name—Witness—and her upcoming tour dates, but there are reports that she may be a new judge on American Idol.
The show's revival is set to come back in 2018, but Perry is already in talks to be the first judge—according to The Hollywood Reporter. There isn't even a host of the revamp yet, as former host Ryan Seacrest has yet to give the green light, given his new duties on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
This would be major for Perry, who has previously guest judged on The X Factor in the U.K. She reportedly passed on several multi-million-dollar offers to join NBC's The Voice.
The "Chained to the Rhythm" singer announced her new album title Monday morning and it's set to be released next month on June 9.
Witness "reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire," according to the album's announcement release. Her tour of the same name will kick off on Sept. 6 in Columbus, Ohio, running through a Dec. 20 show in Miami. Then once the new year begins, Perry will be back at it for shows around the country and in Canada through Feb. 5.
That isn't all, as every tour ticket purchase includes a copy of Witness and $1 from every ticket goes to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Tickets will be up for grabs to the general public starting on Monday, May 22 at 10 a.m., with Canadian dates on sale on Friday, May 26 at 10 a.m.
With all of this exciting news, Perry will also be SNL's musical guest on May 20 for the show's season finale.
