Katy Perry kicked off her critically-acclaimed Vegas residency at Resorts World last month, ahead of performing 32 shows until March 2022. 

And since the launch, the I Kissed A Girl hitmaker, 37, has been settling into Sin City life – which she documented in a new slew of snaps shared on Monday. 

Taking to Instagram, Katy posted a number of snaps and videos, including a screenshot of a Facetime with her fiancé Orlando Bloom, 44, backstage images of her racy PVC outfits, a snap of her fan mail and a video of her vocal warm-up.

Katy took to the stage for the first time on Wednesday 29 December and has since been hitting the stage to rave reviews from critics.

Seemingly having a wonderful time both on and off stage, she shared a trio of shots in her PVC looks – including a racy red ensemble, a blue number and a stand-out look – comprising a mushroom-inspired costume. 

Then giving an insight into life away from her fiancé, with whom she shares daughter Daisy, 16 months, she posted a screenshot of a beaming Orlando in bed while she posed with a bunch of roses in rainbow shades.

Katy then posted a video of her Starbucks coffee, with a small spillage alongside which looked like a graphic of a virus – to which she joked that she had only ordered a coffee, not ‘covid’ before zooming in on the splash.

During her vocal warm-up, Katy posed in her mushroom outfit before turning the camera into selfie mode and performing her pre-show routines. 

A stack of fan mail was next on the bill for the busy star, as she gave a snapshot of a pile of letters from adorning fans, complete with letters and snaps.  

Katy has been praised for the ‘highly camp’ Las Vegas residency.  

She has been delighting her fans with the zany show that sees her emerge from a giant toilet and converse with a talking mask, with critics lauding the show as both ‘poignant’ and ‘whimsical, and psychedelic.’

Katy’s show, which featured several nods to the Covid pandemic, also saw the star hark back to her iconic California Girls video with an array of colourful ensembles, before lactating, and drinking, beer out of a bra dress made from cans.

After Katy kicked off her residency in Sin City, several critics have offered their thoughts, with most praising the wild and wacky showcase as being just the tonic for fans during the Covid pandemic.

Rolling Stone’ Mark Gray, who lauded the ‘larger than life’ production, added: ‘Aptly titled ”Play,” the show is quintessential Perry, who indulged the emotional, the over-the-top, the whimsical, the psychedelic, and even the cheesy over the course of 95 minutes.

‘The concert — which the artist is referring to as ‘Perry Playland’ — amounted to a giant singalong, which seemed to be exactly what she had in mind.’

Oh no! Katy then posted a video of her Starbucks coffee, with a small spillage alongside which looked like a graphic of a virus - to which she joked that she had only ordered a coffee, not 'covid' before zooming in on the splash

Elsewhere, Billboard’s Melinda Sheckells noted a ‘surprisingly poignant’ moment came when Katy poured beer from her tin-can dress, while chatting to an enormous disposable mask.

She added: ‘This almost two-hour wild ride through ”Perry Playland” transports the audience into another dimension of rainbow fluff, heart-shaped confetti and larger-than-life anthropomorphic household objects – it’s part fantasty, part hallucination and thoroughly high-camp Perry.’ 

Writing in the Las Vegas Review Journal, John Katsilometes noted the moment Katy referenced her late grandmother Ann Pearl Hudson, who worked on the Lido de Paris production at the Stardust, which has since been demolished and replaced by Resorts World.
