Katy Perry has teased a new tour following her upcoming performance at King Charles III's coronation. The singer will be ending her Las Vegas residency in November 2023, and has now shared that because there were a lot of fans who could not make it to Sin City, she is "due" a tour.

"I still love making music. I still love spreading light and love. I know there's a lot of people who couldn't make it to Vegas. The last time I was on tour was in 2018. I'm... due. How about that? I'm due to go out and see the kids that couldn't make it to Vegas," Katy told Out magazine.

Katy joins Take That and her American Idol panelist Lionel Richie on the bill for the show to be held in the grounds of Windsor Castle on Sunday May 7 alongside opera stars Andrea Bocelli and Sir Bryn Terfel and singer/songwriter Freya Ridings. 

Alongside other names which will be announced in due course, the musicians will perform in front of an audience of 20,000 on the East Lawn of the castle at the celebratory show, which will be broadcast live on the BBC and takes place the day after the King and Queen Consort's coronation ceremony at Westminster Abbey.

Katy, who is engaged to British actor Orlando Bloom and welcomed daughter Daisy with the star, has established herself as a supporter of Charles's favorite causes; in 2020 she was appointed ambassador of The British Asian Trust, a charity founded by the then-Prince of Wales. 

The 38-year-old singer said: "I am excited to be performing at the Coronation Concert, and helping to shine a further light on the British Asian Trust's Children’s Protection Fund, whose work includes on-ground initiatives to fundraising, with the aim to find solutions to child trafficking."

British band Take That's appearance on the bill continues a warm relationship the band have established with the royal family. Supporters of The Prince's Trust, they have regularly appeared at the Royal Variety Performance, while frontman Gary Barlow curated 2012’s Diamond Jubilee concert for the late Queen at Buckingham Palace.
