Katy Perry Announces Two Auckland Shows

Katy Perry Announces Two Auckland Shows

The Wait is Over!
Two Auckland Shows Announced!

After selling an incredible 23 shows for her 2014 Australian tour, international superstar Katy Perry has announced that THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR will head to New Zealand in December,
playing two shows only at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th December.

Presented by Dainty Group, the tour is in support of Katy’s smash hit album PRISM, which debuted at number one in New Zealand, 29 weeks on the charts and still counting.
Now certifiedPlatinum, PRISM produced the huge hit singles ‘Roar’ which topped the NZ singles chart for 11 consecutive weeks, and the double-platinum ‘Dark Horse’.
In the US it’s Katy’s 9th #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and her 11th #1 hit on American pop radio, an unstoppable run of smash songs the world over.

Paul Dainty, Chairman of Dainty Group said “We are honoured to be promoting Katy’s tour in New Zealand. She is the hottest star in the world,
her single and album sales are staggering and New Zealanders adore her.”

Advance tickets for THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR will be available to all Visa Credit, Debit and Prepaid cardholders via the Visa Entertainment Pre-sale,
from 9am Tuesday 3 June 2014 until 5pm Wednesday 4 June 2014 or until presale tickets sell out at www.visaentertainment.co.nz

Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 9am on Friday 6th June from www.ticketmaster.co.nz

THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is a visual extravaganza, a truly stunning show with lavish production as Katy returns as one of the biggest superstar artists of our times.
The state-of-the art stage, specifically designed by Katy for THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR, allows her to get closer to her fans than ever before.
The one-of-a-kind set design will provide concert-goers with a truly magical experience from every angle in the arena.

The 11-time GRAMMY® nominated singer has connected in New Zealand in the same breath-taking way as around the world. She is a mega-platinum selling artist,
with 8 x #1 singles, 2 x #1 albums and has spent an astounding total of almost 4 years on the NZ Album Charts across 3 albums!

In the USA Katy Perry holds the record for the most consecutive weeks in the singles charts in history, and is equal only to Michael Jackson for having the most #1 singles on one album
with tracks ‘California Gurls’, ‘Teenage Dream’, ‘E.T’, ‘Firework’ and ‘Last Friday Night’. She was the first artist to have 5 songs sell over five million digital units
and in 2013 was the highest-ranking female on the Global Recording Artists list of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is Katy’s first tour since 2011’s sold-out California Dreams Tour, which was the subject of 2012’s 3D feature film, Katy Perry: Part Of Me, the fifth biggest music documentary of all time.

To top it all off, just last week Katy Perry was voted ‘Top Female Artist for 2014’ in the Billboard Music Awards.

Opening artist for Katy Perry’s New Zealand shows is Swedish singer/songwriter TOVE LO, whose EP Truth Serum peaked on the Swedish Album charts in March 2014,
with her single, Stay High, ranking 6 on the UK singles chart. She has written songs for a number of artists including Girls Aloud and Icona Pop.

Dainty Group is delighted to confirm the exceptional Katy Perry, the artist of the year, and her PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR for New Zealand in December.

Both shows will go on sale simultaneously and it is not possible to add any further dates. Last time Katy Perry played in New Zealand she quickly sold out two nights at Vector Arena.
This time if you blink whilst waiting for tickets, they will probably be gone.

Christmas has come early for New Zealand, and the show of the year is perfectly timed to party!

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
