It’s been two years since singer Katy Perry last played Quicken Loans Arena, and her popularity shows no signs of waning. Other divas (Lady Gaga, for one) might be struggling to fill arenas, but not Perry, who played not one but two shows at the United Center in Chicago on the Prismatic World Tour. Perry opens the shows with “Roar,” her defiant anthem that shows she’s more than just a California “gurl,” and the set includes catchy pop hits such as “I Kissed a Girl” and “Firework.” Expect lots of costume changes and complex choreography. And given that the Gay Games are in town, expect a particularly diverse crowd and a festive atmosphere too.
