“I will always remember this joy of community and family and togetherness … It’s been a bunch of strangers under one roof singing the same song. So, there’s an energy that’s wonderful,” Perry said. “I’ll never forget that energy. I’ll never forget the joy. I’ll never forget the happiness.”
About a year and a half before she launched Play, Perry gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom with actor Orlando Bloom. “I haven’t put any new material out since my darling Daisy,” Perry said. “I think that I’m writing a lot and have written a lot from a place of love because I’m feeling so much of it — so much unconditional love, that love you never knew existed.”
The Grammy-nominated artist’s last studio album arrived just two days after she gave birth to Daisy. Titled Smile, the album peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the Billboard Hot 100 track “Daisies” (No. 40). “I’m always writing, I have been, but I think what’s really important to me is to be celebrating the world that I’ve got to build with all of these wonderful songs and to be responsible for a life for a 3-year-old,” she added. “I will be back, but let me get this right.”
The “Roar” singer launched her Play residency back in December 2021, and, by the time the show closes on Nov. 4, it will have spawned 10 legs. Perry has delivered more than 50 shows of her blockbuster residency, which includes a setlist that boasts several of her Hot 100 No. 1 hits, hilarious props and flashy dance numbers.
Jerrett Franklin grew up in a small town. He moved to Nashville to pursue a music career. After writing for a few different artists in the area, he decided to branch out and give local music the spotlight. That is where the idea for Music On The Rox originated from. We are dedicated to shining a light on local music and giving a voice to those who aren’t being heard.
