Katy Perry fans can 'witness' her live at the Tacoma Dome early next year

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Whatever you were already planning on doing February 3, 2018, cancel it - if you're a Katy Perry fan, that is. This is the night she'll perform at the Tacoma Dome, as part of the North American leg of her 'WITNESS: The Tour,' in support of the artist's new album, Witness. The 'I Kissed a Girl' singer begins her tour on September 7 at Columbus' Schottenstein Center and will continue onto a few dozen other cities, including Washington DC, Nashville, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Milwaukee, Atlanta, New Orleans, Las Vegas and Portland. Thus far, two singles have been released from Witness, 'Bon Appetit' (featuring Migos) and 'Chained to the Rhythm' with Skip Marley. But it's expected she'll feature previous hits into her show, from 'Teenage Dream' to 'Firework' to 'Dark Horse.' Tickets to see Katy Perry in concert at the Tacoma Done on February 3 go on sale May 22 (10am) at AEGLive.com.

Grizzly Bear is coming to Seattle, as well, late this fall in support of its latest work, Painted Ruins. The indie rock outfit, fronted by openly Gay member Ed Droste, is set to play the Moore Theatre on December 8 and will partner with PLUS1, ensuring that $1 from every ticket goes to support HeadCount, an organization that promotes civic engagement to inform and empower young people. Grizzly Bear launched their recording career with 2004's Horn of Plenty, but it was the critically acclaimed album Veckatimest, from 2009, that put them on the music map. Tickets to see the band's upcoming show will go on sale May 24 (10am) online at Ticketmaster.com, in person at the Paramount Theatre box office, or by phone at 1-800-745-3000. For more information, log onto STGPresents.org.

Also headed to the Emerald City is The Kooks. The British rock band just released a greatest-hits collection titled The Best Of...So Far that contains 18 of the group's top singles, plus a remix of 'Naïve.' Two of my personal favorites are on the album, 'Always Where I Need To Be' and 'Ooh La.' The Kooks will play a lot of these songs on their upcoming North American tour, which lands them at The Showbox Market here in Seattle on October 14; all dates of the act's UK outing have already sold out completely. For tickets to see The Kooks live, go to showboxpresents.com.

Other newly added shows to keep on your radar: David Archuleta at The Triple Door on June 13, Thundercat at the Capitol Hill Block Party on July 21, Amadou & Miriam at The Triple Door on August 9 and 10, The National at the Paramount Theatre on November 28 and 29, and the Pixies at the Paramount Theatre on December 3.

Fresh from being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready is putting out a new book titled Of Potato Heads and Polaroids: My Life In and Out of Pearl Jam, which is more or less a pictorial documentary of his travels with the Seattle band. Ever since he joined Pearl Jam, as well as Temple of the Dog, McCready has photographed places, people and things he comes in contact with and has been frequently accompanied by a Mr. Potato Head. These often quirky encounters have been collected for his forthcoming book. To support its release, the famed musician will participate in a special promotional event with local radio station KEXP on Tuesday, May 30 at 6:30pm. McCready will sit down with Kevin Cole, the station's Senior Director of Programming, who is also my former Amazon co-worker and who I just saw at the Johann Johannsson concert a few weeks ago. The two will go over the book during a 30-minute discussion, then do a Q&A session with interview questions asked by in-studio audience members, followed by a book signing. For more information or to RSVP, visit KEXP.org.

Finally, Lady GaGa's exclusive 10-piece collection of fashion items will be exclusively available at Urban Outfitters beginning this weekend. The new, limited line called 'GaGa-UO-Joanne' includes long-sleeve shirts, T-shirts, hoodie, muscle tee, Alpha Industries bomber, baseball hat and tote bag. Prices range between $16 and $279. Have fun shopping, Little Monsters!
