 The next Katy Perry cycle begins June 9 when the pop star releases her fifth album, “Witness.”

The new album, which has already spawned the hits “Chained to the Rhythm” with Skip Marley and “Bon Appétit,” featuring Atlanta’s Migos, is the launching pad for an extensive arena tour that kicks off Sept. 7 in Ohio and will make its way to Atlanta at 7 p.m. Dec. 12 at Philips Arena.

Each ticket purchased for the concert will include a pre-order for the “Witness” album.

Tickets for the Atlanta date will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 22 via the arena box office, www.ticketmaster.com and by calling 1-800-745-3000.

However, registration for the Ticketmaster Verified Fan program, which gives fans first crack at tickets and prevents the sale to automated bots and scalpers, is open now through 1 a.m. May 17. That pre-sale runs 9 a.m. through noon on May 18.

Then there is the Citi cardmember pre-sale, which begins at noon May 18 through 10 p.m. May 20 (visit www.citiprivatepass.com for details).

Ticket prices are $50.50-$200.50.

Perry’s “Witness” tour is her first since the two-year “Prismatic World Tour,” which played Atlanta in June 2014 and wrapped in October 2015.

The hitmaker behind the No. 1 smashes “Roar,” “Firework” and “Teenage Dream,” will perform as the musical guest on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” on May 20.
