We wouldn’t blame you if you’re suddenly re-thinking your annual summer vacation in terms of either being in town when Katy Perry arrives or switching your destination to one of the cities on her tour. Perry is one of the biggest singers to arrive on the scene in recent years and so far her career just keeps on hitting new heights.
Her second album, Teenage Dream, has sold five million copies worldwide since it was released in August. The album’s first single, the Snoop Dogg-flavored “California Gurls” was the biggest selling song of 2010 according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Sponsored by Schick Quattro For Women, the North American leg of Perry’s “California Dreams”world tour launches in Atlanta at the Arena at Gwinnett Center June 7 and wraps with two nights in California at the Santa Barbara Bowl Aug. 13-14.
