ECSTATIC to announce: pic.twitter.com/F75dul8G9a— Katy Perry (@katyperry) November 18, 2013
The singer is riding on the success of her chart-topping single, Roar, which was recently certified platinum in the UK, selling more than 300,000 copies including downloads, and having the most weeks as the number one airplay record this year.
As soon as tour was announced, the social media world, especially Twitter, was buzzing with fans craving for tickets and all sorts of emotions were on display - including fear of being unable to obtain tickets. Some hilarious tweets also emerged from die-hard fans on what they are prepared to offer in terms of money and emotions to secure some tickets!!

Some fans, especially the younger ones, were disappointed to that ticket prices have almost doubled since her last tour, when the cheapest ticket was around £30. However, fans can try Tikbuzz’s ticket search functionality to find the cheapest tickets by comparing Katy Perry's tickets prices from all the big ticket suppliers. Tikbuzz helps fans to make sure that they are not conned by ticket touts and sometimes they might get lucky and find tickets even cheaper than the list price, from those who already bought tickets and are unable to make it to the event.

Katy Perry you have stooped low. £53.50 are the cheapest tickets your selling? What happened to all less than £30 on your last arena tour?— Fabio. (@iamfabio) November 18, 2013
But looking at reviews and feedback from her latest concerts, one thing is sure: fans will have a blast when Perry l performs around the UK.
