Katy Perry is set to tour the UK later this year with her ‘Prismatic World Tour’ which will support her latest album ‘Prism’ which the superstar released in October of last year.

The 15 date tour begins on the 7th of May and will run until the 31st finishing at London’s O2 Arena and Katy Perry has spoken extensively about just how close she’ll be to her fans at any one time.

Fans wishing to see Katy Perry perform live in the UK, say for example at London’s O2 Arena will have to pay £57.50 which doesn’t include a booking fee.

Katy Perry has insisted however that compared to other big stars on tour her prices are “reasonably priced”.

The pop songstress spoke to Capital FM and said: “All of my tickets are very reasonably priced, really reasonably priced, especially compared to my peers.”

He added: “I kind of did all the research for that, I just want anybody to be able to come to my show…I want to have a sold-out tour!”

However many would say that it doesn’t matter how much tickets cost, they’ll pay whatever to see their idol perform. Others may say tickets for most big names are terribly overpriced. Unfortunately they can’t please everyone.

It was confirmed earlier today that Katy Perry will join the list of performers for The 56th Annual GRAMMY Awards which now includes Lorde, Robin Thicke, Pink, Nate Ruess and Daft Punk.

Katy Perry also recently received advice about dealing with her rivals from Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks who spoke on ABC News Radio:

“I said to her, ‘Katy, let me tell you something. You don’t have any rivals. So forget that. Never say that word again. You don’t have rivals. All of those girls? Friends. You’ll probably work with all of them at some point. Friends.’”

Nicks also added that Katy Perry was interested in who her rivals were when she began her solo career back in 1981:

“She said to me, ‘So when you did Bella Dona who were your rivals?’ And I was, like, speechless. I was, like, ‘I didn’t have any rivals.’ And she said, ‘Really? None?’ I said, ‘No…the girls in Heart [were] friends. Pat Benatar [was a] friend.”
