Well, last night was FUN.
The Hubs, bestie, and I went to the Katy Perry concert at the UCF Arena. Usually when concerts go on sale, we wait to buy tickets because good seats almost always become available last minute. We could tell it was going to sell out, so we bought some seats in the stands (that were ok, but not great) so we were guaranteed to go.
A few weeks later, we got lucky when Hubs scored some general admission tickets on a brokering site. They were slightly more pricey, but we’re suckers for being as close as possible. (We sold our other tickets on Craigslist.)
Before we left for the show, we took a few pictures. Hubs and I actually got a good one!
He looks taller than me there too. I assure you, he is not. I hold the Amazon title in this family, thank you.
Robyn was the opening act. We also saw her last year at Club Firestone. Her music is good, but the woman could benefit from a few dance lessons. I am not exaggerating when I say 50% of her dance moves involve air punches.
She could also benefit from a stylist and a haircut that doesn’t represent 1987 Mary Stuart Masterson.
Sweet Lord those pants. I made sure I got a close up for you.
During her set, she peeled and ate a banana.
And then threw the peel directly at the Hubs.
Whoever that is that is standing barefoot on that floor. Girl. You are nasty.
After Robyn, we took a restroom break where Lisa and I met someone with this opening line.
We talked to her (formerly a him) for awhile and learned that she’s a sex therapist, gets her hair done in Ft. Lauderdale, and just had her upper lip “done.” Then she looked at me and said, “we have the same boobs.”
That did not win me over.
We got back to the general admission area right as the concert was starting. Katy puts on a FUN show. Check out the awesome stage setup.
If it looks like we were close, that’s cuz we were.
She opened with Teenage Dream. Those mints on her dress spun around.
She had lots of costume changes! She even changed her outfit a bunch of times during Hot and Cold with magic tricks, which was freaking awesome.
Lots of lasers during Circle the Drain and ET. (Circle the Drain = often on my running playlist.)
There were a bunch of girls at the concert with blue and pink wigs on. It made me wish I wore my blue wig. Maybe I’ll wear it to work on Monday instead. I’m sure everyone at work will love that, maybe more than they love that I shop Old Navy during meetings.
I can’t remember what she was singing here, but I love this picture.
Last song of the night – California Gurls.
I took a ton of pictures, so instead of boring you here, I’ll put them up on the blog’s Facebook page if you’re interested in seeing more.
There was a shower of heart confetti at the end.
The extra ticket cost was so worth it. These were some of the best general admission tickets ever. Not only were we close, but they didn’t oversell the area so there weren’t a bunch of a-holes pushing and shoving to get to the front.
After the show, we went to Tailgaters for a drink *cough*andfood*cough* so we could miss out on the parking garage mayhem that ensues right after a show. There were some nachos involved, I’ll admit. But I didn’t eat that many of them so the diet wasn’t totally ruined. Happy now, Jason?
Now I’m going to take a nap and probably stress out about the fact that my Reader has 80 unread messages after only one day. 🙂
