Katy Perry played London’s HMV Hammersmith Apollo on March 17. It was London’s first taste of her none-more-cheesy ‘California Dreams’ tour. Perry told Rolling Stone recently: “The show has a Broadway feel to it. It’s got a storyline that’s going to be very interesting, kind of loosely based on my life, but a cartoon version.”

On her prep for the tour she said: “I’ll work out, go to a vocal lesson, run through the entire set at rehearsals, go to dance rehearsal until 10pm. I feel like I’m training for the Olympics.”

“Touring is no longer an ordinary thing where you play an instrument in jeans and a T-shirt. It has some pizazz these days, and I’m definitely bringing the pizazz with a lot of bells and whistles,” she said.
