Katy Perry 2014 U.S. tour dates -- Minneapolis in August


Wildlife and John Mayer enthusiast Katy Perry will embark on an enormous North American tour later this year. The 46-city trek is in support of Prism, her third album of songs constructed with the help of pop hitmakers like Max Martin and Dr. Luke. The most notorious of the batch thus far being the Grammy-nominated "Roar."

Perry has chosen pretty well when it comes to support acts, and will travel for select dates with Canadian rock chameleons Tegan & Sara, country music's latest breath of fresh air Kacey Musgraves, and Capital Cities, who have a song called "Safe and Sound" that might interest MGMT's lawyers. The journey begins in June, and the itinerary is below.

Twin Cities enthusiasts can mark Friday, August 22 on their calendar, and should plan to show up early for strummer Kacey Musgraves, who landed a critical and commercial hit with her Same Trailer Different Park in 2013. Might not be long before she's a headliner of this sort. "Follow Your Arrow" is damn-near perfect in the lyrics department.
