Katy Perry is set to perform live in Sydney in a one-off exclusive event hosted by Hamish and Andy and broadcast across the Hit Network.
It’s been 6 years since she last hit the roof and no other station will get fans up close and in the flesh with Katy performing tracks from her new album Witness live. Earlier this week Katy announced her whirlwind trip to Australia and excitement to share her new songs alongside meat pies, Tim Tams and some beer.
With Witness, Katy reflects on the changes in her own life and in the world around her, delivering songs that both challenge and inspire – including the Platinum-certified “Chained To The Rhythm”, its follow-up “Bon Appetit” featuring Migos and the track “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this week Katy performed at the ONE LOVE Manchester charity concert on Sunday night UK time alongside Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and more. She has recently joined James Corden for Carpool Karaoke, performed on “Saturday Night Live”, and graced the stage at the Grammys, Brit Awards and iHeart Radio Awards.
In Australia, Katy has enjoyed 4 x No. 1 singles and 12 x top 5 singles. Her singles have achieved 60 x Platinum status in Australia, with an additional 2 x Gold singles, with “Chained To The Rhythm” already platinum. Katy made her Capitol Records/ EMI Music debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide.
With the singles “Firework” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the first female artist to earn two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol Records / EMI Music, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter.
