Katy Perry has canceled the Charlotte stop of “Witness: The Tour” at the Spectrum Center in uptown.

In a note posted on the KatyPerrydaily.net website, the singer explains that the Sept. 27 cancellation is necessary because of a scheduling conflict. The cancellation is also posted on the Ticketmaster website.

“To all my fans in the beautiful Carolinas, the Charlotte show was accidentally scheduled on a date that I have had a long standing family obligation I must attend. My Management and I are truly sorry,” Perry’s statement said.

No mention was made of rescheduling the show.

Ticketmaster says refunds can be obtained at the point of purchase only. Internet and phone orders will automatically be canceled and refunded, the site says.
