Pop star Katy Perry announced her world tour yesterday (Jan. 15), supporting her latest album Prism. And she’s bringing along some special guests as opening acts. One of them? Rising country artist Kacey Musgraves.
“Ima big ol’ @katyperry fan and I CANT WAIT to join her on her #PrismaticWorldTour this summer,” Musgraves wrote in a message on her Twitter account yesterday. She followed that note with an image:

Additional openers for the four-month Prismatic Tour include Capital Cities and Tegan and Sara. The 46-city trek kicks off on June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina, making stops along the way in such cities as Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland and Minneapolis. Each opening act performs on select dates; the Musgrave shows include stops in such cities as Cleveland, St. Louis and Minneapolis. See all the dates featuring Musgraves below and the full list of Katy Perry tour dates on Radio.com.
Perry previously performed with Musgraves and Tegan and Sara at last year’s We Can Survive benefit concert, thrown by Radio.com and L.A. station AMP Radio 97.1 to raise money for the Young Survival Coalition, an organization supporting young women battling breast cancer.
No date has been officially announced as of yet for the general on sale, but fans will get an opportunity to buy theirs early via Facebook on January 23. Katy has teamed up with Tickets-for-Charity, donating a $1 from each ticket sold for the North American leg to UNICEF.
Musgraves is currently nominated for three GRAMMY Awards, including Best New Artist. She has also been named a semi-finalist for the Academy of Country Music’s New Artist of the Year award, voting for which begins Jan. 21.
