Katy Perry is roaring into Las Vegas!
On Wednesday, Dec. 29, the 37-year-old pop star kicked off her concert residency in Sin City in front of a sold-out crowd at the Resorts World Theatre at the new Resorts World Las Vegas hotel and casino. The "Firework" singer will perform her Katy Perry: PLAY show until mid-January, then take a break and resume performances in March.
During the show, Katy performed hit singles such as "Wide Awake," "Teenage Dream," "Roar" and "Firework" as well as a medley of her 2013 song "Walking on Air" and her new single with Alesso, "When I'm Gone."
"I'm so proud to bring this larger-than-life show to Vegas," Katy said in a statement. "This residency has been years in the making — I remember being in a hard hat and steel-toed boots to walk among the steel beams that make up this gorgeous new theater!"
She added, "I had such a wild time dreaming up all six acts of this show, and it really made me listen to my catalog in a whole new way to come up with a set list that included 20 of my most-streamed songs as well as my new Alesso collaboration to keep things fresh."
"We talked about the costumes and the makeup. Sometimes when I'm going to a fitting, he'll ask for notes or I'll show him this," she said. "It's fun, and we tell each other the truth. I'm like, 'Babe, don't wear that. You look like something. Don't.'"
