Robyn and Katy Perry Make California Dreams Come True
Robyn may be from the other side of the world (Sweden), but her slick, smart pop/dance songs fit right in with Katy Perry’s mega-hits at a recent “California Dreams” tour stop at Nokia Live in Los Angeles.
The recent Grammy winner for “Dancing on My Own” Robyn opened for Katy Perry’s mostly young fans. Though a quarter of the crowd (Read: the awesome gay guys in attendance) danced along happily to familiar favorites like “Fembot” and “Every Heartbeat,” her spirited dancing and exuberant performance of radio hits “Dancing On My Own” and “Call Your Girlfriend” got the entire theater on their feet and bussing with excitement. Rapper Rye-Rye joined her on stage for an unforgettable performance of “Never Will Be Mine.”
By the time Katy Perry hit the stage for 2-hours of hits, a dozen glittering costume changes, and eight candy-striped back-up dancing dreamboats, the energy in the L.A. crowd was pumping. The audience, largely female and dressed up as some neon-wig-wearing, short-skirted version of Perry herself, screamed and bopped along through her hits “Teenage Dream,” “E.T.,” “Fireworks,” “I Kissed a Girl,” and, of course, “California Gurls.” Perry also treated fans to acoustic covers of Jay-Z’s “Big Pimpin” and Willow Smith’s “I Whip My Hair.”
The concert was a pop dream come true, full of lights, neon, glitter, hits and real fireworks. A treat for fans of carefree fun music, at any age, the ticket cost qualifies you access to all these satisfying performers sweet sounds and sights.
