Coaxing a hilarious performance from Nick Lorentz as a Katy Perry-belting suit, Amy Allais’ new spot for Renault and agency Promise is turbo-charged fun. Wiring a hot car and a hot track together is nothing new but this scenario is given some freshness with great performances, impeccable timing and a light comic touch.
Elite pop artist Katy Perry kicked off her brand new “Witness: The Tour” last Tuesday in Montreal, Canada to stellar reviews. Her first U.S. date on this 5-month tour was Thursday night at the Mohegan Sun arena in Uncasville and it went wonderfully, with only a couple of hitches. Walking into the arena, you were greeted by a huge eye-shaped video screen that stood from the ceiling to the stage floor and took up the entire width of the arena. Flowing from the eye was an extended catwalk in the shape of a tear that was used extensively during the evening’s performance.
The night was broken up into five different acts, each grouped together with songs that carried a common theme. As the lights went out shortly after 8:30 p.m., The huge eye-shaped video screen came alive with a space-like introduction. Each of the night’s five segments kicked off with a video introduction, plus each act had it’s own set of outfits for Katy Perry and her dancers.
As the opening video’s journey ended, the screen split in two to reveal Katy Perry on a giant metal star being lowered to the stage as she kicks off her show with one of her new songs, “Witness.” The awards show-like production of her concert featured giant dice with dancers coming out of the holes during “Roulette” and even left shark (from her Superbowl halftime performance) made an appearance during “California Gurls.”
The night became a little more improv and less scripted when she called her mother from the stage to see how she was doing. Her mom asked how Katy was doing, by using her nicknames, “feather” and “turtle” and Katy’s mom also told her to try the sky drop (which actually appears at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino).
Katy Perry continued to rock the night away with the guitar frenzied monsters of “E.T.” and the funky groove of “Bon Appetit,” before being eaten by an enlarged Venus fly trap. This being only the second show of her extensive tour, she hit some technical difficulties when the planet she was supposed to ride would not drop from the ceiling in order for her to get on. After a short wait, Katy Perry was able to climb aboard her planet which would bring her on a track throughout the arena as she sang one of her favorite songs acoustically, “Thinking Of You.”
Dressed in a sliver, shimmery costume, Perry would perform one of her new ballads “Save As Draft” from a smaller stage located in the middle of the area, before a laser show signaled the intense drum roll of another one her new songs, “Power.” The final act of the evening included a ride on Tron-like motorcycle during “Hey Hey Hey” and a giant basketball shoot-up between Katy Perry and a father from the audience (who made his daughter’s day by getting Katy Perry to wish her a happy birthday) during her recent hit single “Swish Swish.” She finished her set with a giant lion’s head appearing from between the video screens during her performance of her big hit single “Roar.”
The encore would feature Katy Perry rising from under the stage at the end of the tear-shaped catwalk. She would appear in the palm of a giant inflatable hand in a perfectly fitting evening gown to perform her hit song “Firework” as every fan in the arena was singing along, almost drowning out the pop star. So even though the beginning of her tour was delayed and she overcame a couple glitches in her performance this evening, Katy Perry made the audience feel extra special that night for being a part of her dreamlike, spectacular concert.

Today officially marks the first day of fall, and
what better way to celebrate than with a concert? If you want to know what the
critics are saying about acts on the road check out these reviews of
performances by Janet Jackson in Tulsa, Okla.; Katy Perry in Montreal; The
Killers in Brooklyn, N.Y.; The War on Drugs in Portland, Maine.; and Marc Anthony
in Fresno, Calif.
Janet Jackson @ BOK Center in Tulsa, Okla., Sept. 17 – “Jackson
was joined by eight dancers on stage and she was a participant in dazzling
choreographed numbers. But dancing wasn’t limited to the stage. Thousands of
attendees stood for almost all of the concert and many got the urge to
spontaneously dance in front of their seats.” – Jimmie Tramel / Tulsa World
Chris Pizzello/Invision/APJanet Jackson Katy Perry @ Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Sept. 19 – “Perhaps The Killers @ Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, N.Y., Sept. 19 – “Despite Torey MundkowskyThe Killers The War on Drugs @ State Theatre in Portland, Maine, Sept. 18 Marc Anthony @ Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif., Sept. 15
the extra production time could have been used to adjust some visuals whose
juxtapositions and statements were as confused as they were colourful. When
Perry rode a stationary motorcycle in a Tron getup for the glib empowerment anthem
‘Hey Hey Hey’ just before delivering the much more affecting empowerment anthem
‘Part of Me’ in front of a screen packed with Pac-Man motifs, it was difficult
to tell if there was something substantial to the gaming graphics.” – Jordan Zivitz / Montreal Gazette
the relatively small size of this 1,800-capacity venue, the Killers brought
their full festival presence to the stage from the first note. …” – Jem Aswad / Variety
– “With the sustained keyboard riffs melding together into a grandiose hum, it
often felt like the band was generating a canvas that [guitarist Adam] Granduciel
could throw swaths of paint against like Jackson Pollock. Against a spare stage
setting – more bands should take advantage of the State Theatre’s brick
backdrop – he sang lyrics that looked back not in anger or sadness, but with
perspective and a degree of resignation. It was altogether fitting for a concert
that seemed deliriously tethered not to the present but some hazy,
half-forgotten moment.” – Robert Ker /Portland Press Herald
– “The guy sitting behind me – who, granted, by 10:30 p.m. was more Modelo than
man – yelled ‘enough of this slow (expetive)!’ at one point. Despite perhaps a
lack of eloquence, he spoke for a lot of us. … I was right there with Anthony
for the first two songs, that wonder ballad and the encore. But he simply lost
the audience in between.” – Rory Appleton/ The Fresno Bee

UNCASVILLE, Conn. — Pop singer Katy Perry roared into the Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday for what was only the second night of her Witness Tour supporting her fifth album released in June.
The tour was to begin on Sept. 7, but due to “unexpected production delays” began on Tuesday at the Bell Centre in Montreal. Up-and-comer Noah Cyrus, sister of pop singer Miley Cyrus, is the opening act on the first leg of the tour.
The two-hour long concert saw Perry – who was accompanied by a five-piece band and a bevy of dancers – run through a 21-song set that included all of her hits and some 10 songs from her latest album “Witness.”
Perry, who as the daughter of two pastors had a strict upbringing, began her rise to stardom in 2008 with the suggestively titled No. 1 single “I Kissed a Girl.” Her second album, “Teenage Dream,” spawned five singles that topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, tying Michael Jackson’s record.
While Perry chose to begin her Super Bowl performance by entering on a giant mechanical-looking lion, she entered the Mohegan Sun Arena riding in a giant, shiny star before starting the show appropriately with “Witness.”
“I’m so glad I can finally see you Connecticut,” she told the crowd, later chanting “New hair, same me.”
It was easy to understand why there was a production delay given the incredible stage design, complete with proscenium to get up close and personal with the audience, and the many playful props and costumes incorporated into the show. The main attraction to the stage was a giant eye-shaped screen whose eyeball opened and closed throughout the show to make way for over-sized props like the giant red lips that came out for “I Kissed a Girl,” which eventually engulfed the singer. Interestingly enough, Perry introduced the song by saying she was going to sing a song that “My mother doesn’t like” – an obvious reference to the title.
Other memorable moments included:
- Perry telling the audience, “I don’t think you are ready for my next guest.” It was Left Shark direct from his appearance at the Super Bowl, who came out to dance around with her during “California Gurls.”
- The pop star singing “Hot N Cold” while performing alongside two larger-than-life pink flamingo “puppets” manipulated by operators underneath them.
- Her light up bra sending messages during the show’s second set, which featured the songs “Teenage Dream,” “Hot N Cold,” an abbreviated “Last Friday Night,” “California Gurls,” and “I Kissed a Girl.”
Despite delaying the tour to work out last-minute production details, there were still glitches on the second night of the tour. At one point during the show, Perry mouthed to her technical staff that she couldn’t hear through her earpiece. In a much longer delay, a planet would not descend behind stage for Perry to board and ride out into the arena above the crowds while singing “Thinking of You.” It eventually did. The same problem plagued her in Montreal on Tuesday. Perry asked the audience for their patience as they continue to work out the show’s kinks and said laughingly, “Remember, rock stars aren’t perfect.”
The high-energy show also had its slow moments. At one point the singer talks with her mom as an over-sized red hand piece from a phone appears on stage. She really does talk with her mom live as her voice is piped into the arena. In another slow moment as the show was coming to a close, Perry offered a tribute to dads who bring their younger children to see her. She asked a dad to come on stage and play basketball with her, as part of the set to “Swish Swish.” Also, when a shooting star appears during “Thinking of You,” she brought a young member from the audience on stage to make a wish as one does when seeing a shooting star. Gabriella’s wish was for everyone to pray for the hurricane victims. Perry was touched by the sentiment.
Perry ended the show with “Roar,” this time with a huge mechanical-looking lion head emerging from the eyeball. To add to all the fun, inflatable eyeball balls were thrown into the audience to toss around.
She chose “Firework” for the obligatory encore, which featured her returning through a large hand cradling her throughout the song which she performed in its entirety on the proscenium. As she left the stage descending through the hand, Perry again thanked the audience for their patience.
And, yes, there were fireworks on stage along with star-shaped confetti falling to the floor during the encore.

A bit of a passion project – and also an experiment to see exactly how far you can push this stuff. Turns out you can push it quite far.

She’s said to have inspired Katy Perry’s song, International Smile.
But it was Mia Moretti’s infectious giggle that led to her wardrobe malfunction on Thursday night, as she graced the red carpet at the amfAR gala in Milan.
The DJ, who is a close pal of pop princess Katy, flashed her nipple as she threw her head back into a laugh in a plunging evening dress.

Oops! Katy Perry’s DJ pal Mia Moretti suffered a nip slip on the red carpet on Thursday night, as she joined guests at the amfAR gala in Milan
The knitted number, which featured rainbow-coloured frills to the floor, slipped away from her bare chest as she burst into giggles.
Her appearance couldn’t be missed, thanks to her vibrant colour palette, which was also completed with a fuchsia lipstick and violet shoes.
She wore her hair in a signature bob, with a short fringe, and long earrings down to her shoulders to save as the only other accessory.
Bright beauty: She couldn’t be missed in her rainbow-coloured gown
Flash: The DJ fell foul of a flimsy fabric that exposed her braless display
Bold: She completed the look with violet shoes and bold lipstick
Fashion-savvy and fun-loving, she certainly looked like Katy’s type of girl, and even bore a striking similar resemblance to the musician.
Mia is considered an ‘industry favourite’ DJ and something of an ‘It’ on the remix scene.
She has long been a pal of Katy, with the two even working together at times.
Colour combinations: The dress showed off the musician’s lithe physique
Though it’s never been confirmed, sources have suggested that Mia was the inspiration behind Katy’s song I Kissed A Girl.
And during the singer’s romance with actor Orlando Bloom, Mia often joined the two at parties.
Katy and Mia forged a strong friendship when the DJ’s remix of her pop hit Hot ’N Cold made its way into the Billboard Top 10 dance chart.
Further to that, Katy’s song International Smile was said to be inspired by her pop-rock muse, Mia.
Old friends: Mia is considered Katy’s muse, having previously inspired her songs
Party people: Katy and Mia have long been friends and even worked together (here with Katy’s ex Orlando Bloom, centre)
