Katy Perry

So, last October I went to see Katy Perry and wrote a review for my chum who was maybe going to use it on their website.  It just occured to me that they hadn’t used it so I thought I would stick it on here instead… 

Katy Perry played the AECC the Saturday before Halloween. It would be interesting to see if the audience would have been as eye catching any other time of the year.  Obviously there would have still been the blue wigs and high heels, but maybe not the zombies (although they were very effective costumes!). Audience apart, it was an amazing spectacle of an evening. The support act One Land seemed to be a lady in a floaty nightie, a quick Google search found she’s Danish and popular back home. To be fair the songs were enjoyable.The main act was very well constructed, an Alice in Wonderland inspired fairy tale ran between the songs, with the lyrics and costumes tying into what was happening on the big screen. Cupcakes and sweeties featured highly, and Katy Perry often looked sweet enough to eat!Outfits ranged from a white 50s prom style dress with twirling red and white discs, to a black slashed looking catsuit, to a long red and silver evening dress. Im sure I’m not the only girl in the room desperate to be let loose on her wardrobe!

She covered all her hits including Ur So Gay, Kissed a Girl, Teenage Dream, Last Friday Night and E.T.  Everyone joined in with a cover of Adele’s hit when it made an unexpected appearance.

There were a few surprises through the evening, (she sings live you know!) like when Katy Perry picked a young man out of the audience to join her on stage for a smooch, then pretended her husband was coming. She also impressed the locals by having researched the area, and not just doing the usual ‘your city is lovely’.

Then there was the encore.  Katy had of course kept Californian Girls for last, and out she went with a bang..and beach balls…and foam machines! What a show that girl puts on, what a high note she finished on, what a night we had!  Hurry back please gal.

Yes please!

I did take a few photos and videos and they are available online at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/stupidgirl_no1/sets/72157627886537147
