Katy Perry - Brisbane

It is almost 1AM and I have just arrived home after seeing Katy Perry at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. As you all know I have been waiting for this show for what seems like ages and could not wait for the day to arrive. I constantly 'youtubed' the California Dreams Tour and my expectations were extremely high!

We entered the 'Arena' and were greeted with the smell of Cotton Candy. A video started Katy's performance, this introduced the theme of the show a Candy Wonderland is the best way to describe it. The stage was filled with lolly and cupcake sets. Katy rose up on a platform and 'Teenage Dream' began. The crowd went crazy, the song raised the bar exceptionally high and I knew we were in for a fantastic show! Hit after hit followed; "Waking up in Vegas", "Hummingbird Heartbeat", "I kissed a girl", "Hot n Cold" were absolutely amazing! During the middle of the set things went a little mellow. Katy and her band were onstage in front of a curtain backdrop and she entertained us with covers of Rihannas "Only Girl In The World", Willow Smith "Whip My Hair" and, Rebecca Black "Friday" Katy had the crowd eating out of the palm of her hand! Ms Perry (or should I say Mrs Brand) then donned a sparkling acoustic guitar and performed "Thinking of You" which left me speechless, I think I had a few tears in my eyes any doubt in her vocal ability anyone in the crowd would have had would have left as soon as she sang that song. "Thank God It's Friday" followed before launching into "Firework" which sent the crowd into a frenzy, what an amazing song, they even had fireworks onstage! Katy came onstage with her Cat "Kitty Purry" and performed a crazy fun cover of "I wanna dance with somebody". Closing song "California Gurls" had absolutely everyone on their feet for one last party song! Confetti in the shapes of hearts and candy covered us as Katy finished off the party.

Words really can't describe how much fun the concert was. I honestly don't think I have ever had such a great time at a concert. Performance wise while it was entertaining it wasn't the best I have seen but the costumes, the dancers and the incredible stage set up more than made up for it. It was also really refreshing to see how well Katy interacted with the crowd, she is no diva! She was cracking jokes all through the night and was very appreciative of all the people who had came to see her. I am so happy I got the chance to go to the final Australian performance for Katy's California Dreams Tour. It was a fantastic night and when she returns to Aus I would highly recommend buying a ticket to see her! You will have the time of your life.

I decided to dress up as 'Kitty Purry' for the show and City Chic's Animal Print Kaftan was a perfect match for my leopard ears. The Kaftan is so comfortable it is one of my favorite pieces!

Are you ladies loving City Chic's latest line Midnight Vixen? There are a number of pieces which need to find themselves into my wardrobe ASAP.
