Charli XCX to support Katy Perry on European ‘Prismatic’ tour dates

February and March 2015 arena dates announced

Charli XCX is set to support Katy Perry on tour in Europe in February and March next year (2015).

Perry’s ‘Prismatic’ tour will arrive in Europe in the early part of the year with Charli XCX on board for dates in Spain, France, Otaly, Poland, Austria, Belgium and Holland among others.

Speaking about her place on the tour, Charli XCX said: “I’m excited – it’s going to be a magical tour. Katy’s the coolest and it’s an honour to go on tour with such a pop legend. Pussy power.”

Charli XCX releases her new album ‘Sucker’ on October 5. The album will feature Charli XCX’s Top 10 single ‘Boom Clap’ plus new single ‘Break The Rules’. The British singer has worked with Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo and Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend on the record.

‘Sucker’ follows 2013’s ‘True Romance’. To support the release of the album she will play a one-off show at London’s Heaven on October 30.

Speaking to NME about the record earlier this year, Charli XCX said she’d be using the LP to establish herself as a solo artist, after becoming famous for duetting with Iggy Azalea and writing for Icona Pop. “I can write a fucking hit song,” she said. “And I’m going to write some for me now. I feel like as an artist I’ve done so many collaborations now that I think I just want to take this record for myself.”
