Katy Perry wows the crowd


The Tacoma Dome was filled with more than 18,000 Katy Perry fans for The Witness World Tour’s 50th show and the last U.S. show. The extravaganza was part fashion show, part theatrical stage production, and part pop/rock concert. The bedazzling show started with Perry being transported through the pupil of an eye as wide as the stage wearing a red-hooded, sequined dress and sunglasses while singing “Witness.” The band and backup singers sported futuristic fashion outfits as they coursed over the long stage runways. It took the cases and cases of stage props from back stage to support the incredible stage production of costumed and brilliantly choreographed dancers, robots on stilts, large Venus flytraps with dancers in them, Lefty the shark, giant salt and pepper shakers to sprinkle the Queen of Pop, pole dancer on an eight-foot tall rose, huge glowing dice, an oversized basketball game and a whole galaxy of planets and stars with Perry riding planet Saturn around the Dome. At one point, Perry sang from a 40-foot pair of moving lips. All of this was accompanied by a rocking band with Perry performing at the top of her game.

At one point of the show, in keeping with her New Year’s resolution, Perry called her mom with a 6-foot, red phone as a prop. Perry’s mother was informed that this was the largest of all the 50 shows that Perry has done in the U.S. The phone call was broadcast over the sound system where Perry’s mother called her daughter “Feather.” As they spoke, Mom took the opportunity to inform Feather that Tacoma was the home of Baskin Robbins, LeMay, the world’s largest car museum, Almond Roca and where the Mars Bar was invented.  Perry ended the call saying, “I got to go and sing that song you don’t want me to sing…. ‘I Kissed a Girl.’”
