Katy Perry to appear in Riga next March


Pop diva Katy Perry will perform in "Arena Riga" on March 15 next year in what will be her only concert in the Baltic countries, as spokesman Kristaps Karklins, told LETA.

This is sure to be an impressive show as the stage will occupy almost half of the arena, which is why there will be 2,400 standing room tickets available compared to the usual 4,500, said Karklins. Tickets will be available in all three Baltic countries on the same day.

The concert in Riga is part of Perry's "Prismatic World Tour" in Europe in 2015, promoting the CD "Prism", released at the end of 2013, which has sold more than 6 million copies. The first single "Roar" topped charts in 96 countries, and the second single, "Dark Horse" - in 38.

In 2013, Perry became the most followed person on "Twitter" with over 50 million strong.

The two-time "Grammy" nominee wears the title of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Tickets to Perry's concert will go on sale on Thursday, June 5, at the "www.ticketpro.lv" website and outlets in the various supermarkets in Riga.
