Katy is playing in a variety of large clubs and small theatres. Her itinerary will take her to the stages of such classic venues as The Fillmore in San Francisco, Irving Plaza in New York City, The Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles, The Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, Canada and The Elyse頍ontmartre in Paris, France, hitting forty-five cities around the world between the tour’s Jan. 23rd kick-off in Seattle, and an early May wrap-up show in her Santa Barbara hometown.
Currently, Katy’s second single, the irrepressible “Hot N Cold,” is her second international hit: aside from Top 10 entries in Australia, Canada and the U.K, it is a bulleted Top 5 smash on Billboard’s Hot 100 pop chart, and No. 2 most-played song in the nation’s mainstream pop radio stations. The video has become the No. 2 most viewed video premiere of all time on MySpace and the track’s U.S. radio success has sent the RIAA gold-certified ONE OF THE BOYS bulleting back into the Top 20 of the national Billboard Top 200 album chart, in its fifth month of release.
Katy is fresh off of a scene-stealing performance at the MTV Latin America “Los Premios Awards,” and hosting and performing at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Liverpool where she picked up the award for “Best New Act”. Perry spent two solid months on Stateside tour with Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2008 a scene described by one Midwestern reviewer as comparable to the running of the bulls in Pamplona “…minus the bulls, or the quaint Basque scenery” marking her as a solid live performer.
Meanwhile, Katy’s career displayed the same unstoppable forward momentum, as her first single, “I Kissed a Girl,” took up an astonishing seven-week residency at No. 1, equaling a Capitol label record set by The Beatles. The song was the 1,000th American No. 1 hit of the rock era, amassing over 2 million domestic paid downloads, and now approaching 6 million in global single sales. In addition, the song was No. 1 nationally in 15 countries, including the U.K., Canada, Germany, Sweden, and Australia as well as a No. 1 iTunes download in over a dozen countries, and a No. 1 airplay smash in 20 territories.
Along the way, as ONE OF THE BOYS made its Top 10 Billboard album chart debut, critics and fans alike commented on the cultural zeitgeist so effortlessly captured by Katy in her songs and video clips, including the underground Youtube and Myspace smash, “Ur So Gay,” and the five times MTV Video Music Award nominee “I Kissed a Girl.”
