Katy Perry’s tour for Teenage Dream was an epic escapist odyssey that turned stadiums and arenas around the globe into her own personal Candyland. When she hits the road in 2014 in support of her chart-topping latest, Roar, what will she do to keep her game elevated?
“The tour is going to be fantastic,” Perry told EW while Tim Stack followed her halfway across the Earth for the cover story in the current issue. “I always try to take it to the next level. I think people will realize what the tour is going to be like when they listen to the music.”
Perry promises that the new show will definitely incorporate material from Roar, but she’ll always make room for her catalog of older hits. “There’s nothing worse than going to a concert of an artist and not hearing your favorite songs,” she said.
As for the concept and the stage design, Perry is tight-lipped, but she does offer one intimate tease. “Let’s just say I’m going to be very close to people,” she said.
