Katy Perry To Headline Rock In Rio-Lisboa Music Festival
It looks like there’s life left in the Witness era. In addition to winding up her world tour, Katy Perry has signed on to headline the Rock In Rio-Lisboa music festival in Portugal on June 30. She is the main attraction on a day devoted to female artists. Joining her on the bill are Jessie J, Hailee Steinfeld and Brazilian superstar Ivete Sangalo. Ever resourceful, the “Hey Hey Hey” hitmaker also added a (solo) show in Barcelona, Spain on June 28. Find out more about the festival and secure tickets here.
As well as touring, it looks like Katy is already thinking about her 5th album. Hitmaker Steve Mac (Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” and Liam Payne’s “Strip That Down”) recently revealed that they have locked in studio time, which is in line with Capital CEO Steve Barnett’s comment in Variety that the lengthy break between Prism and Witness might have been a factor in the album underperforming. With American Idol on the horizon, it looks like we’ll see and possibly hear a lot more from the pop star this year.
