    Katy Perry’s Philadelphia show has been rescheduled for a later date, and she is hoping her fans won’t “roar” in frustration.

    “I'm sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but hope everyone who sees the show will agree it was worth the wait,” the pop singer stated.

    The Philadelphia show, part of WITNESS: The Tour, was set for September 18 but is now scheduled for October 12 at the Wells Fargo Center. All tickets purchased for the original concert will be honored and refunds are available “at point of purchase” the pop star’s press release stated.

    The set back is due to "unavoidable production delays," Perry says. “Major elements of my tour stage design could not be available for me to rehearse on until this week.”

    The artist of hit singles “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Dark Horse” says she’ll be spending the extra time “to properly prepare the show to be an experience I am proud to share with you.”

    Her last tour, the Prismatic World Tour, was sold out for all 151 dates. Rolling Stone called her show “a show to damage retinas and blow minds.”

    Noah Cyrus, who’s debut single “Make Me (Cry)” was #1 on Spotify’s Viral Global chart just hours after its release, will open the Philadelphia show.

    Tickets for the new concert date are on sale on the web, by phone (1-800-298-4200) or at the Wells Fargo Center box office.
