Katy Perry recently wrapped up the UK leg of her Prismatic World Tour and — with little time to rest — will be embarking on a 46-city North American “Roar”-fest come Sunday. So what can we expect when Perry comes at us like a “Dark Horse”? According to the singer, the proverbial unexpected.
“You have to continue to keep people guessing a little bit,” Perry told the Los Angeles Times when asked about her three-album career (four if you count 2001’s Katy Hudson). “Every time when they think they’ve got me pegged, I’m going to move the peg a little bit.”
The UK leg of Prismatic certainly moved Perry’s metaphorical peg into out-there territories. From going full-on Egyptian and starring in her own production of “Cats” to donning slime green wigs and bringing the poo emoji to life (nightmares), Perry lived up to her promise that the tour would be “a feast for your eyes and for your Instagram.”
But can we expect the same spectacle when Perry hits North Carolina on Sunday for her North American tour kickoff? Or will she move that peg even further?
Perry gave very little away in the interview with the Times — except to share that it’s all about tea and water on tour, no rock ’n’ roll partying for her — but she did give us this little nugget: “I think that, eventually, I’d like to do an acoustic record.”
Perhaps she’ll pull a reverse-Dylan when she hits the stage this weekend? A KatyCat can dream…
