She is a champion, and you're going to hear her roar — because Katy Perry is going on tour, with a stop in Salt Lake City.

The mega pop-star announced Monday she will launch the North American leg of "Witness: The Tour" on Sept. 7 in Columbus, Ohio. The tour will arrive in Salt Lake City on Friday, Nov. 24, at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Along with the tour, Perry announced her new album, "Witness," will be released on June 9. The album includes the singles "Chained to the Rhythm" and the just-released "Bon Appetit" (whose sexy food-themed video dropped last week).

Over the last decade, Perry has been a colossal presence in the music and pop-culture world. Her string of No. 1 singles include "I Kissed a Girl," "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "E.T.," "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," "Part of Me," "Roar" and "Dark Horse." She was the voice of Smurfette in two "Smurfs" movies, performed the halftime show at Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 and set off the "Left Shark" meme, and campaigned for LGBT equality and for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Tickets for Perry's show at The Viv go on sale Monday, May 22, at 10 a.m. at Smith's Tix. The pre-sale begins Wednesday, and fans can register on Perry's website.
