Katy Perry 125th California Dreams Tour 2012, MOA (with some celeb paparazzi shots)

International pop star  Katy Perry delivered yet another awesome California Dreams Tour. The 125th tour happened here in Manila! Yey! Venue was held at SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds - One E-Com Center side of the Mall of Asia complex.

The stage was like a wonderland!!! Think huge lollipops, candies, cupcakes, LED screens with pink lighted cotton candy clouds!  I felt like I was back in my early teens! Esp, the opening song TEENAGE DREAM goes like this... 

"You make me feel like I'm living a teenage dream
The way you turn me on, I can't sleep
Let's runaway and don't ever look back
Don't ever look back"

Some screenshots!

I'd like to share a beautiful video I found in Youtube:
