Katy Perry is known for her diverse and weird shows. Even though she had trouble hitting the notes at the start of her career, nowadays she is really good live. The "Witness Tour" was the second show I've seen of her, after the "Roar Tour", and it certainly was something.
It is amazing how many hits Perry has had over the years. The whole concert is one big moment of "oh yeah, that's also a Katy Perry hit." There are so, so, so many. She couldn't even fit them all in. She also sang some of her newer songs, form her latest album, Witness.
The show is very visual. The costumes, the props, the lights. Everything is extremely over the top and not always necessary. I felt that sometimes it was a bit too much and it didn't really fit the song. It shadowed away her vocal capability and I feel that if she had toned down the extraness just a bit, we could have heard more of her voice.
The setlist was really good. I must admit that I'm not the biggest fan of the album, Witness, and therefore was glad she didn't sing too many of the songs and mostly stuck to the hits. Songs like "E.T.", "I Kissed A Girl", "Teenage Dream" and "Chained To The Rhythm" all were played.
The best part of the night was "Swish Swish." She really went all out with the performance, including playing some basketball with two siblings from the audience. That was a really nice gesture, especially since they were sitting on the tribune. The show was a bit long tho, it was really energetic and fun, but in the end, I was looking at my watch a bit more.
Overall, I think Perry put on a great show. In my opinion, she could have toned it down, just a bit so that we could hear more of her incredible vocals. That was my main point of critic, I can't say anything other than that.
