The tour is designed to be a "multi-faceted spectacular" and will include a special standing pit around the stage called "The Reflection Section" that will allow Katy to be "closer than ever to her fans," according to the official Katy Perry website. The singer will take Swedish pop duo Icona Pop on the UK leg of her tour, and the duo may follow her to the various destinations she will head to on her travels.
