Katy Perry to play Rock In Rio Lisbon 2018

It'll be her only festival appearance this year

Katy Perry has been announced as the closing night headliner for Rock In Rio festival in Lisbon, Portugal.

The ‘Chained To The Rhythm’ star’s only European festival performance will see her closing out the Sunday nice on June 30, alongside Jessie J, Ivete Sangalo and Hailee Steinfeld.

Elsewhere, Bruno Mars, Muse, The Killers, The Chemical Brothers, Bastille and more are set to hit up Lisbon’s Bela Vista Park across two consecutive weekends next summer – 23-24, and 29-30 June.

Tickets for Rock In Rio Lisbon can be found here, with hotel packages available here.

Earlier this month, Katy Perry revealed that she would rewrite her breakthrough hit ‘I Kissed A Girl’ if she could, admitting that the lyrics contain “a couple of stereotypes”.

Perry released ‘I Kissed A Girl’ in 2008 and was criticised at the time by Gossip’s Beth Ditto, who argued that the song was offensive to gay culture.

Addressing the song’s controversial lyrics, Perry recently told Glamour: “We’ve really changed, conversationally, in the past 10 years. We’ve come a long way. Bisexuality wasn’t as talked about back then, or any type of fluidity.”

“If I had to write that song again, I probably would make an edit on it,” she said. “Lyrically, it has a couple of stereotypes in it. Your mind changes so much in 10 years, and you grow so much. What’s true for you can evolve.”
