Katy Perry / February 2009 UK Shows

By on Thursday, 30th October 2008 at 4:31 pm

Yes, I know her tunes are cheap, commercially minded and really rather rubbish. And that her first single was possibly the most heavily marketed piece of drivel known to mankind. However, I kinda like Katy Perry‘s new single, Hot ‘n’ Cold. I feel wrong and dirty for merely admitting this, but even so, it is a piece of pop goodness.

Looking beyond the superficialness of her music however, she’s bringing her show back to the UK next February for two shows as she continues to plug her new album.

Reportedly she’s the female Mika, so expect a good show, even if you feel guilty as anything the next morning.

Tickets for both dates go on sale tomorrow morning (Friday 31st October 2008) at 9am, so go go go, pop fans.

Wednesday 25th February 2009 – Manchester Academy 2
Thursday 26th February 2009 – London Koko
