UPDATE: Katy Perry coming to the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa
Well, here it is, kids, the tour both your 13-year-old daughter and 42-year-old husband have been waiting for all winter: Katy Perry is coming to Tampa.
The pop starlet announced dates for her 42-city California Dreams North American Tour today on Facebook, and the St. Pete Times Forum made the cut. She'll be performing in Tampa on June 10. (She also announced an Orlando date, at the UCF Arena on June 9.) She's come a long way from playing Jannus Landing, hasn't she?
Details are scant at this point, but Perry's announcement says tickets to the Tampa show will go onsale at 10 a.m. Jan. 29. So, y'know, feel free to skip Gasparilla and spend that morning hitting refresh on Ticketmaster.
We'll update you when we have more details.
UPDATE NO. 1: Billboard is reporting that Swedish dance diva Robyn and Marina and the Diamonds will open Perry's North American tour. Regardless of what you think about Perry, those are two pretty awesome openers.
