Katy Perry is saving the best for last.

The singer, who has become one of the biggest music stars in the world, will end her 46-city North American tour at the Toyota Center in Houston on Oct. 10, her representatives announced on Wednesday.

The Prismatic World Tour kicks off June 22 in Raleigh, N.C.. The only other Texas stop is in Dallas on Oct. 2.

Perry promises a unique experience with her stage set-up, which includes the so-called "Reflection Section," with general admission seats close to the stage.

The tour is named after her 2013 album Prism, which has so far yielded one massive hit, "Roar." The song, which bears more than a passing resemblance to Sara Bareilles' "Brave," spent two weeks atop the Billboard charts and was nominated for Song of the Year and the Best Pop Solo Performance at the upcoming Grammy Awards.

Perry, who had a famous split with comedian Russell Brand, has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with serial celebrity dater John Mayer since 2012. That relationship is currently in the on-again mode, and the two even recorded the romantic duet "Who You Love" for Mayer's latest album.

Tickets go on sale Jan. 21 through the Citi card Private Pass Program. There is also a pre-sale through Facebook starting Jan. 23; check Perry's Facebook page for more details as that date gets closer.

Capital Cities, Kacey Musgraves and Tegan and Sara will serve as opening acts at different points during Perry's tour; no word on the Houston opener yet.
