Hello Katy Tour
(2009)
California Dreams Tour
(2011–2012)

The Hello Katy Tour was the debut concert tour by American recording artist Katy Perry, in support of her second studio album One of the Boys (2008). The tour visited North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Background[edit]

After completing the Warped Tour 2008, Perry announced the tour in November 2008, following the MTV Europe Music Awards 2008, which she hosted.[2] In an interview with Billboard, Perry stated, "I have the guy who creates stages for Madonna working on this tour, I'm indulging my obsession with fruit and cats and designing all different outfits."

The stage design featured a white picket fence, mailbox, over-sized pink flamingos, inflatable plastic fruit, and a giant cat (named "Kitty Purry") that glowed during the encore. Perry had two costumes during the show. During the encore, she would appear dressed as a cat.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

The tour received mostly positive reviews. The Orange County Register called the tour "a surprisingly strong performance" in a positive review.[4] In a negative review, Variety called the tour "chilly" and "calculated".[5] Seventeen, impressed with the tour, posted a list of ten things they liked about it.[6]
