Premium entertainment network EPIX announced today that it will present the World Television Premiere of KATY PERRY: THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR, on Saturday, March 28, at 8PM. The recently filmed, high-energy, two-hour Concert Special, will air during the EPIX Free Preview Weekend (March 26-29) and features Katy performing her biggest hits from “I Kissed a Girl” to “Dark Horse.”
EPIX subscribers will be able to watch the special across all EPIX platforms—on air, online, on demand and via the EPIX app. Non EPIX subscribers will be able to watch the special online at EPIX.com, via the EPIX app and in markets where the Free Preview will be carried by Verizon FiOS, AT&T U-Verse and other EPIX affiliates. The premiere of the concert film will also be available as a Live Free Stream via the official EPIX and Katy Perry Facebook pages.
Mark Greenberg, President and CEO, EPIX said: “Katy put so much into this show. Her explosive performances, fiery artistry and fun sense of style never fail to delight audiences. Showcasing talent of this caliber is what EPIX is all about. We are committed to offering our viewers the highest level of programming– across all platforms, and providing them with front row access to the most exciting music concerts touring the globe today.”
Katy Perry said: “After over 100 shows and counting on The Prismatic World Tour, I’m thrilled to now be partnering with EPIX to share this incredible show with everyone at home in the U.S. If you thought the 12 1/2 minutes at the Super Bowl were a feast for the eyes, imagine what you’ll get in this 2-hour show!”
Katy — currently touring the globe on The Prismatic World Tour — took a break to headline Super Bowl XLIX’s half-time show to glowing reviews. The Prismatic World Tour continues to be a hugely successful global spectacle, with 17 sold-out arenas in the UK, 66 in North America and 25 in Australia/New Zealand during 2014. The tour continues in 2015 throughout Europe, Asia and South America where Katy will headline “Rock in Rio” in Brazil on September 25.
KATY PERRY: THE PRISMATIC WORLD TOUR is a sensory explosion of eye-popping theatrics and infectious pop tracks that secured Perry’s place as one of the most captivating performers working today. Directed for the stage by Baz Halpin, the tour is a collaboration with Katy that offers fans a visually stunning production that captures her fun-loving attitude and artistic appeal.
