September 27, 2017 - 6:45am

Katy Perry's Witness: The Tour is well underway after a kickoff in Montreal last week. Fans will soon be able to stream exclusive content from the tour as well as videos, playlists and interviews once Perry's TV channel goes live.

"It means a lot to me for all of my fans, no matter what their situation, to feel like they can come along for the ride," Perry said of the new Xfinity X1 channel, reports Billboard. "[It] will be a place where I can give fans weekly glimpses into all the different facets of the tour - not just the work of it, but also the fun!"

In a teaser, a voiceover jokes that viewers will be able to "witness" Katy hanging with Left Shark, playing with puppies, officiating weddings, shooting hoops and more.

Perry has 85 shows scheduled for her world tour, which runs through August 2018. Opening acts include Carly Rae Jepsen, Purity Ring and Noah Cyrus.

Meanwhile, Perry got a nice present during the Washington, D.C. stop of her tour. The Recording Industry Association of America officially presented Katy with three RIAA Diamond Song Awards. A song is certified diamond when it notches 10 million or more sales or streams, and Katy is the only artist in history to have three such songs: "Roar," "Dark Horse" and "Firework." Only 14 songs in history have ever been certified diamond.

What's more, Katy's the only female artist to have four videos that have racked up a billion views or more: "Roar," "Dark Horse," "Firework" and "Last Friday Night."

Katy's tour continues Friday and Saturday with two shows in Boston. Next week, the Witness tour arrives at New York City's Madison Square Garden.
