WHY HAS KATY PERRY PARTNERED with TICKETMASTER #VERIFIEDFAN®?
Katy Perry cares about her fans and understands there are going to be more people who want to see her on tour than there will be available tickets. She’s committed to getting tickets in the hands of fans. Not scalpers or bots. Katy is collaborating with Ticketmaster to sell presale tickets through the #VerifiedFan platform – a unique fan-first technology that levels the playing field so fans have the opportunity to unlock access to tickets.
We want to help as many of you as possible to see Katy Perry on the North American leg of WITNESS: The Tour. As the #VerifiedFan Presale approaches, here are some tips to help answer any questions.
Please note: Registering does NOT guarantee you will be verified, receive a code or have the ability to purchase tickets.

In addition to the #VerifiedFan Artist Presale, WITNESS: The Tour will have a credit card presale beginning Thursday, May 18 at 12pm to Saturday, May 20 at 10pm (venue local) and public onsale on Monday, May 22 at 10am (venue local).
When does registration close?
Registration closes on Tuesday, May 16 at 10PM PT.
Can I register for the U.S. #VerifiedFan Presale from outside the U.S.?
Yes, you can register for the #VerifiedFan Presale from outside the U.S. + Canada but only for the U.S. + Canada dates for this tour.
If I register for the U.S. #VerifiedFan Presale from outside the U.S., do I need to include my country code with my phone number?
Yes, if registering from outside of the U.S. please include the country code with your telephone number.
Can I register for the U.S. + Canada #VerifiedFan Presale more than once?
Fans may only register once per event for the #VerifiedFan Onsale for the U.S. + Canada dates.
Can I register for more than one date for the U.S. + Canada #VerifiedFan Presale?
Yes, fans may register for more than one venue/date, but only once per venue/date.
I registered more than once, will I be disqualified?
We know you’re excited, but don’t register more than once per event/date. And creating multiple new accounts (email, Ticketmaster, social or other) will negatively impact you.
I got a confirmation email, what does that mean?
Receiving a confirmation email only means your registration has been submitted. It does not mean you are verified.
Does registering mean I get a code?
No, successfully registering does not guarantee you will be verified or receive a code.
Does getting a code mean I will get tickets?
If you receive a code it will only unlock the ability to access tickets. Due to a limited quantity of #VerifiedFan Presale tickets, they will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and are not guaranteed.
If I get a code will it work for more than one date?
If you receive a code it should only be used for the date linked within the text message you receive prior to the presale.
When is the Presale?
For the U.S. dates, the Katy Perry Presale powered by Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan is Thursday, May 18 at 9AM (venue local time).
For the Canada dates, the Katy Perry Presale powered by Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan is Tuesday, May 23 at 10AM (venue local time).
What is the ticket limit?

Will there be GA tickets for the U.S. + Canada dates on the tour?

Will there be VIP and Meet + Greet packages available for the U.S. + Canada?
VIP Packages are available in North America for WITNESS: The Tour; check the links in the chart below for VIP availability. Pricing is subject to change and fees + taxes will apply.
WITNESS: The Tour will not have Meet + Greet packages in North America.
How do I learn more about WITNESS: The Tour outside of the U.S. + Canada?
The Katy Perry Official Website has the full list of dates for WITNESS: The Tour.
If my parent uses their credit card to buy, does the person’s whose name is on the card have to attend the show?
No. The tickets will be in the Ticketmaster account holder’s account. (Remember, receiving a code does not guarantee tickets.) Ticket delivery option details are available in the links in the chart below.
You said you got rid of scalpers, but I already see ticket for sale and the presale hasn’t started.
Many unofficial sellers will list tickets even before they go on sale. This practice is called speculative listing and fans should not trust resellers claiming to have tickets. Those speculative listings are not real tickets in hand. Beware of these sellers.
