US pop singer Katy Perry staged a concert at the Taipei Arena for the second time on Wednesday. To put on a perfect show, 10 containers were flown in with props weighing over 50 tonnes, including her six stunning stage costumes. The audience of more than 10,000 were treated to a sensory experience at a show full of constant surprises.

According to Perry’s music label, since her “Witness: The Tour” began in September last year in North America, the singer has already put on over 60 dates of the well-received show in the past few months to promote her fifth album, “Witness.” The most expensive tickets for the Taipei concert were priced at NT$8,800 (US$300) each.

Perry reportedly rekindled her relationship earlier last year with actor Orlando Bloom, who appeared at her first Japanese concert late last month to show support. She was set to perform in China in November last year, but was unable to get a work visa.
