The album Prism by Katy Perry has been listed for 688 weeks in 20 different charts. With this being said, it’s no surprise that Perry brings in thousands of fans at every concert in the Prismatic World Tour. While her California Dreams tour was candy-themed fun, Prism brings fans Prismatic fun, a trip to Egypt, a cat-themed world, a heartfelt acoustic session, a throwback to the 80’s, and A hyper neon dance party. Her goal with this tour was to be closer than ever with her fans, and while successfully attaining this goal, she ensures all fans leave there with twinkles in their eyes, and happiness in their hearts.
Perry begins the concert with a Prismatic theme. She sings her songs “Roar”, “Part of Me”, “Wide Awake”, and “This Moment/Love Me”. During this set she focuses on introducing herself and what she stands for as an artist. With flashing lights, nonstop movement, and her prismatic light up costume, this is the set that sets the mood for the rest of the night.
When the next set began, Katy brought her fans all the way to Egypt to perform “Dark Horse”, “E.T.”, “Legendary Lovers”, and her first single “I Kissed a Girl”. She entered the stage by mechanical horse wearing a gold headband, and other Egyptian attire. During this act it tells a story of two Pharaohs fighting for the love of the Pharest, while her female dancers are dressed as mummies who chase her around the stage. By the end of this set, Perry is hooked to a rope and raised into the air to mimic how one would look if abducted by aliens.
After Perry and her dancers disappear for a quick costume change, she returns in a pink body suit and a cat mask. All of her dancers are dressed as cats as well, and the stage is full of cat houses and balls of yarn. During this set she sings “Hot N Cold” and “International Vogue Smile”. She ends this segment by having one of her dancers dump a giant glass of white confetti on her before she exists the stage.
While it has all been fun up until this point, Perry attempts to show a more serious side during her acoustic session. She enters the stage with pastel rainbow hair and a bright glittery dress, and offers two different fans in the pit to take a “selfie” with her on the way across stage. After this she begins what she says is her “favorite part of the show”, when she gets to communicate with fans, talk about herself, and even eat pizza with a fan. She then sings her songs “Thinking of You”, “The One That Got Away”, and “By the Grace of God”. While singing her slower songs she asks that everyone shine their flashlights on their phones to “light up” the stadium.
To bring the show to a close, Perry does two scenes that are very much alike. These particular acts include songs “Walking on Air”, “Birthday”, “Megamix Dance Party”, “It Takes 2″, “TGIF”, “TIHWD”, “Teenage Dream”, and “California Gurls”. Perry creates an 80’s vibe on stage with colorful costumes, and nonstop dancing. During this particular act there is a dance cam which looks for any fans that are dancing and displays them on the big screen. This is a wonderful end to the show because it leaves fans feeling positive and full of excitement.
Over all, the Prismatic World Tour is meant to bring happiness and harmless fun to thousands of people every night. Perry has a great deal of love for her “Katy Cats” (fans), and she puts in a lot of effort to create such extravagant shows for them. This show in particular is definitely one to consider for anyone looking for a good time.
