Katy Perry @M.E.N Arena

This was a concert that was mass produced to create a very special evening for everyone inside the M.E.N, and I enjoyed every bit. We arrived at the venue late which left me gutted as I had missed half of Oh Land's set. She is a french singer that I didn't know was the support until I walked in and heard my favourite song 'Sun Of A Gun' :(

The curtains pulled up and we were greeted by a stage that was transformed into 'Candyfornia', complete with candy-cane banisters, candyfloss clouds and much more, there was a lot to take in.

The show started with a story about her cat 'Kitty Purry', which was helped along by some funny videos to move the night along. Seeing the singer perform 'Thinking Of You' at the far end of the arena on a pink cloud, was great as we were sat on the far side of the arena meaning we could now see that it was definately Katy Perry not just someone in a pink wig. As it was halloween many fans dressed up as her or your more traditional halloween costumes like ghosts and witches.

As Katy travelled on the pink cloud she noticed peoples outfits and complimed them on their effort, making me wish i had dressed up. Two girls dressed as pumpkins which she extremely liked and later tweeted them after the concert.

Overall a great talent that is complimented by her imagination of set design and the wackiness of the costumes. Also, in one song, she had 7 costume changes!

She finished the night off with hit 'California Gurls' which included cream being sprayed into the audience as well as confetti and beach balls making us all feel like we are in steamy California rather than a freezing cold Autumn night in Manchester.
