Katy Perry Adds Dates to California Dreams Tour

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Katy Perry has added eight additional U.S. dates to her California Dreams World Tour. The dates extend Perry’s tour into the month of September, landing her in San Antonio, Texas on Sept. 7 and wrapping up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Sept. 17.  Janelle Monae will open all the new dates. The tour gets underway June 7 in Atlanta.

For the tour, Katy is using cool technology called "Tweet-to-Screen" to allow her fans to express their enthusiasm and excitement at her performances. All of her shows will feature huge on-stage screens that will display concertgoers’ live tweets and photos before Perry hits the stage. A mini version of Tweet-to-Screen will also be featured on the singer’s tour diary on her website.

In addition, a portion of the proceeds from some of the best seats at select performances will be donated to three charities selected by Perry -- Generosity Water, The Humane Society of the United States, and the Children’s Health Fund. So far, her fans have raised over $100,000 in charitable donations. Tickets for these special seats can be purchased at
