Katy Perry Video Concert Reviews

This was the first time I saw a full set by Katy Perry, and she was extraordinary. She’s totally comfortable on stage and musically versatile. Guys love her, girls love her…she just rocks.

Katy Perry @ The Cannery Ballroom – Nashville, TN 4-14-09

Her stage scenery was very cheesy, but it fits her style and the smaller venues that she is playing – much like burlesque theatre or variety show props. Besides, who needs all the extras while Katy’s jumping around, singing her heart out. The white glow stick-piped suits that her band wore were classic.

After seeing the way she moves on stage, it made sense why she wore a cute little sparkling black dress with rainbow accents, instead of some elaborate costume. There’s more to a performance than just looking cute. I’m glad she realizes that although her 50s pinup girl fashion is a huge part of her success, she needs people to realize that she’s more than a couple of hits. She is really talented, and I’m ashamed for thinking that she was overrated during the “I Kissed a Girl” rage. If you haven’t seen her live (and not on some big televised night), then you haven’t seen what Katy can do.

The Daylights opened the show. I heard one guy classify them as a “boy band,” which is not the case. Believe me, I know my boy bands. Yeah, they are three wicked hot guys, but In my opinion, a “boy band” is a group of guys that are clearly marketed towards women, and sing pop songs. The Daylights are mellow rock, a sound similar to U2. Ricky and Ran’s vocals are incredible, and they blend in a way that only happens with twins. Yes, they are twins. As Katy said during the show, “You know what that means, one for me…and one for you.” Maybe that’s what triggered the “boy band” comment.

The one thing that bothered me about the show was the ridiculous prices people were selling these tickets for. The face value was $18. I went to a party after, and someone told me that they couldn’t go, and was able to sell the ticket on EBAY for $75. People on Craigslist were selling them for $30+ a pop. Luckily, I was able to find Guy a last minute pair for $30 – Thanks to Matt and Kristin! I guess it just proves that even in this economy, people are still shelling out to see concerts. I just wonder if Katy Perry sees a penny of that increase. Either way, it was a lot of fun, and “I pity the foolz” who don’t jump at an opportunity to see it.

If you are in the Irvine, CA area, she’s playing with No Doubt and The Sounds on August 4th. Seriously, do you want to miss that? Get on it!

Top 3 Favorite Things about Katy’s show:

1. Rhinestone microphone with cherry designs on it
(Stars are getting really creative with their mics. I don’t know who designed her mic, but I saw that Sennheiser does custom mics for 1,000 bucks, if you’re interested…www.sennheiserusa.com)

2. Katy showing off some of her dance moves and breaking out “The Butterfly.”

3. We all enjoyed her Queen cover, “Don’t Stop Me Now”
