Katy Perry’s Popsicle-colored “Prismatic’ show to Tacoma Dome | Concert preview

Nearly a year after its release, Katy Perry’s “Prism,” which spawned her biggest single yet, “Roar,” is still in the top quarter of the Billboard 200 album chart. No doubt her Prismatic World Tour, which will fill the Tacoma Dome Saturday, Sept. 13, isn’t hurting those numbers.

Reviews from the road suggest the cartoonish tween idol has surpassed the spectacle of 2011’s California Dreams tour, lavishing a kaleidoscope of Popsicle colors and outlandish spectacles on her fans.

Prancing on an arrow-shaped stage that juts 100 feet into the crowd, the 29-year-old Kewpie doll — who cleverly combines salaciousness with innocence — will be on full display in segments featuring Egyptian and anime themes, among others.

Inside the spectacle, expect a string of hits — from her 2008 breakthrough “I Kissed a Girl” to the recent “Dark Horse” — with a quiet half-time interlude featuring the more serious “By the Grace of God.”
