The long hot days of summer are finally here so Saucy and Loopy are taking advantage, taking a little break from the kitchen and the blog (it's too hot to bake anyway) and are trying to do fun summer things, like seeing Katy Perry in concert. Before too long, Saucy will be entirely too old for these types of things.
Saucy pounced on the internet the cold January morning tickets went on sale at 10:00 AM and got hers at 9:59... that's right. The computer and cell phone still said 9:59 but the refresh key ensured good floor seats.
Katy wowed her audience with an amazing stage show, her first after a bad case of food poisoning. Saucy was almost worried the show wouldn't go on and the road trip would be cancelled - but Katy pulled through and the show went on.
There were seventeen costume changes - eight in one song alone. Here, Katy wants to see your peacock.
You know, there was a mother with her daughters right in front and that lady was peeved. She found the lyrics distasteful. What did she expect at a Katy Perry concert? Did she not know who she was taking her kids to see? Katy Perry kissed a girl and she liked it, after all.
The audience was whipped up into a frenzy by the time she donned her trademark blue tresses. They'd seen acrobats, Vegas showgirls, mimes, videos, magic tricks, cartoons, bubbles, giant candy and cupcakes. It was kinda trippy. The giant dancing cat at the end was very trippy.
Katy was interactive with her crowd. You could tweet her before the concert and she posted the messages on giant screens. You could send her party pictures on Facebook and she danced in front of them to "Last Friday Night," another song that offended the mother in front.
You may have figured out already that some of these pictures aren't Saucy's. She had great seats but she wanted to enjoy the show and not fiddle with her camera so much.
(That's kind of why the angles are changing).
Saucy wants an outfit that looks like pair of Hershey Kisses, and badly.
This might be an argument to bring back high waistbands, don't you think?
Check out the sparkling caftan... Saucy also wants a caftan and be it sparkly, all the better.
Katy wore a cotton candy skirt and drifted over the crowd on a pink candy cloud. She sang with her sparkling guitar.
She got every forty-something mother up on their feet dancing to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"... but not the mother up front. She sat, cross legged and arms crossed, fuming. She rolled her eyes violently when Katy sang her own rendition of Rebecca Black's "Friday."
Saucy will say it again... it's a Katy Perry concert... what did she expect?
If she was expecting ten dancing gingerbread men in a finale of pyrotechnics, confetti and beach balls, she got it. If she was expecting less, then too bad.
Maybe Saucy isn't too old for these things after all.
