As someone who suffered through David Bowie's excruciating *Glass Spider* show (when Katy Perry was, er, three years old), I can say with some authority that just because a concert is big and expensive doesn't mean it's good.

Strictly as a show, Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour tops them all.More »
