Katy Perry's California Dreams Tour 2011 In Ottawa

IMG_7625 logo

Babysitters in Ottawa got a night off this last Sunday when Katy Perry was in town, because all the toddlers seemed to be at her "California Dreams" concert in Scotiabank. I should have brought a pack of Lunchables to have with the over priced cotton candy. But unfortunately my parents don’t give me allowance anymore, so I was just a too-tall loser toddler who blocked others' view.

It was impressive enough that Katy filled an arena with 16,000 people but she also delivered an entertaining show with acrobats, mines, dancers, fireworks, smoke bubbles that smelled like cotton candy. At one point Katy even got on a floating cloud and performed on top of the floor crowd.



Katy has been in the industry long enough to build a list of songs where everyone can sing along. There was an incredible amount of energy when she sang “I Kissed A Girl” and “Fireworks”. The singer also had numerous outfit changes. While performing “Hot And Cold” Katy changed about 6 times on stage in just seconds. It almost seemed like a magic show.

Throughout the night, Katy charmed Ottawa with her unique sense of humor and even invited fans on stage. At the end Katy sprayed the floor with foam and sitting in the 6th row from the stage, Angie and I were covered in confetti and foam, and left very satisfied.

The show had a Vegas worthy production. I’m not the biggest fan of Katy’s music but her show was one of the best I’ve been and her charm won me over.

  1. She has increasingly been 'getting to me', at the beginning didn't like her much but she has proven to be an artist, creative and with a great personality.... I can't call my self her fan but I do like her a lot and wouldn't miss her concert if she comes to Miami...... knowing now how things are, I guess I'll buy my cotton candy at Costco before :)

  5. I am not really a big fan of her live voice but her music is quite contagious and I confess to be a sucker for all the singles in her new album haha...the show looks like a fun park went turbo..but that´s cool! Now that I think about it was been years since I ate cotton candy...there used to be a lot of parks here in Panama but they were all closed, now we got parks that open like two times a year for a week and that´s all

  24. Looks like a great show! Love your pics. You look amazing as usual. Really love your hair colour!

    Thanks for commenting on my post. I agree with you on being inspired by celebrities' looks. I just didn't want any nasty comments from haters saying I look nothing like them and i didn't get their makeup right etc.. Though, I am planning on doing a celebrity inspired look next. Wish me luck!

  34. Sounds like quite the concert!! Your commentary is as entertaining as the show ;)

  35. So, Miss Katy can be darn charming when she wants to be, eh! Well, I have to admit I recently added one of her songs to my iPod. I blame Glee.

    I'm glad you enjoyed the show so much, despite the expensive cotton candy. You looked especially lovely that day. I hope not too many toddler dads (single toddler dads) tried to use their cute little ones as an excuse to strike up conversations with you. ("Wow, my little Tricia really seems to like you. I..I can't believe it, she's just so shy with everyone else. Oh, how rude of me, I haven't even introduced myself. I'm Tad, Tad Harper.") LOL, I probably heard that in a movie when I was a kid and it stuck in my brain. ;P

  37. RE: Fruit Loops. I think my grandmother thought I had some sort of disorder when I was a kid because sometimes I sorted my fruit loops. I wanted to see if the yellows tasted lemony, if the oranges tasted orangey, etc. When she'd ask what I was doing, I always just said, "nothing".

    ReplyDelete
  38. ahahaha, it must've been such a cool concert!!!! glad she had the candyland theme :D and was it really filled with kids?

    PS: yeah, i know fashion moves soo fast! i'm getting fatigued with catching up on all the shows. XP
