Katy Perry, or “Fruit Sister” as she’s become known among fans in China, tore it up and roared her heart out in typical sequin-y, animal printed style at Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena on Tuesday and Wednesday night.
The singer kicked off the fifth leg of her Prismatic World tour in China, performing in Guangzhou on April 18 before heading to Shanghai for two nights of performances. She’ll fly to Tokyo next, then sing at the Taipei Arena on April 28 before heading to Macau, the gambling capital of Asia.
The set list expectedly included all of Fruit Sister’s biggest hits, including “Roar”, “California Gurls”, “Teenage Dream”, “Wide Awake” and more.
Ahead of the concert in Shanghai, Perry took up the chance to meet her fans during a meet-and-greet session.
She also busted out three new outfits not yet seen in the year-long tour, including a neon paint-splattered dress, what we’re assuming is one of several variations of a cat bodysuit and this little sunflower number.
In the middle of the concert, three barely 10-year-old fans were lucky enough to be invited to the stage. She flattered the wee pre-teens and flexed her Mandarin skills by telling them “wo ai ni” (I love you). One of the fans revealed that he was just eight years old, and Perry jokingly replied, “I’m definitely not eight years old. That happened to be long time ago, it was a time when dinosaurs were still alive!”
Ain’t she sweet?
She promised mainland fans that she’d return again during her performance of “Firework”.
