Giving Good Morning America a preview of the tour, Katy Perry: Play, Perry told the news outlet, “A lot of my shows have been, you know, figuratively larger than life. But I play a doll in this show, so everything is like, three times the size of me.” Around the same time, she shared an image to her Instagram account that revealed her setlist for the concert.

Her behind-the-scenes tour of the stage, which included a preview of her sparkly costumes, isn’t the only sneak peek fans have gotten of her upcoming show. Perry shared a fun clip on Instagram. In the clip, she is seen dressed in a red latex top, with cut-outs across her chest.

Resting on top of her head is a red and white mushroom cap. As the video plays on, Perry peers out from behind a giant mushroom with a microphone in her hand. As the camera pans out, her intricate set design is revealed — bringing giant mushrooms to the center of the viewer’s attention.
