COLUMBUS (WCMH/AP) — Pop star Katy Perry will be kicking off her tour in Columbus in September.

“Witness” the tour, will begin September 7, at the Schottenstein Center.

Perry’s only other stop in Ohio will be December 10 when she performs at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.

Tickets go on sale May 22, at 10am at, but presale tickets for verified fans start May 18 at 9am. Anyone who buys a ticket will receive a copy of the album.

Other stops on the tour near Ohio include Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, and Louisville.

Two singles have been released from “Witness” so far: “Chained to the Rhythm” and “Bon Appetit.” Perry hinted at the album’s name earlier this month by wearing a headpiece that spelled out the word “Witness” on the red carpet at the Met Gala.

Perry is set to perform on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
