Katy Perry wraps the U.S. leg of “Witness: The Tour” at the Tacoma Dome in Washington Feb. 3.

Katy Perry is returning to her hometown of Santa Barbara, Calif., for a performance to benefit victims of recent fire and flooding disasters.

The concert, dubbed Witness: Coming Home – A Benefit For The Community: Our Neighbors, Our Heroes, takes place May 19 at the Santa Barbara Bowl.

Santa Barbara was devastated by the Thomas Fire in December 2017. The area was hit by mudslides a month later, destroying homes and killing 13 people, according the The Los Angeles Times.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now.

Perry made a surprise appearance last month at the “One805 Kick Ash Bash” fundraiser for those affected by mudslides in Montecito, Calif. The event, which took place at Bella Vista Ranch in Summerland, Calif., reportedly raised nearly $2 million.

The pop star wrapped a tour with Carly Rae Jepsen in February. The outing reported dates to Pollstar’s Box office including 8,782 tickets sold at Philips Arena in Atlanta Dec. 12, which grossed $950,017; 8,744 tickets sold Dec. 10 at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, which grossed $896,760; 10,243 tickets sold at BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., Nov. 19 which grossed $672,842; and 10,779 sold for Nov. 14 at the SAP Center at San Jose, raking in $1.21 million.  

Perry is currently on tour with Bebe Rexha in South America. Check out her Pollstar artist page to keep up with the latest tour announcements.
