Basketball Hoops & An Eye-Shaped Stage, Katy Perry Previews ‘The Witness Tour’
Katy Perry hasn’t had the easiest 2017, but it looks like she’s starting to turn it around. “Feels,” her collaboration with Calvin Harris, is an international chart-topper and the video for “Swish Swish” (the year’s most slept-on single, at least in the States) has racked up 160 million views in two weeks. The pop star’s Witness Tour is also shaping up to be a blockbuster. She shared a couple of videos on Instagram and it looks like a pop concert from the future with elaborate screens and staging.
There are acrobats, massive projects, a giant basketball hoop (there’s obviously a segment built around “Swish Swish”), an eye-shaped stage and an array of glittery costumes. The videos are all soundtracked by “Hey Hey Hey,” which gives me hope that the most obvious hit on Witness might eventually be rolled out as a single. It would certainly make sense to have something at radio while Katy’s on the road. The tour kicks off on September 19 in Montreal, Canada. Get a glimpse of the live extravaganza below.
