Original parody creator and BSM senior, Peter McCague, has announced he is coming to the Hamburge Theater for the first stop on his Krazy Kat Tour. Known for his creative take on pop songs like “Mile (Never Run One),” based on Taylor Swift’s “Style,” performer P3T3R is preparing to debut his first live performance this winter.
His Krazy Kat Tour will highlight the songs on his second album that started Weird Music Records’ (his self-made record label) rise to fame on social media. “My first full length album was Stalkers Reloaded, which had minimal success. “Ever since [the Krazy Kat] EP dropped, I’ve been wanting to go on tour with it. And now that’s finally happening. And it is a tour even though it is only one concert,” McCague said.
The inspiration for the songs on the album comes from his own love for cats, and he uses cat related themes to replace popular lyrics in songs like “Purrr,” a take on Katy Perry’s “Roar” that has over one thousand views on Youtube. “The album is called Krazy Kat because I love cats; I have three of my own––Little Pete, Chaucer, and Ticky,” McCague said.
The Weird Al Yankovic-inspired performer has high expectations for the show’s production value; fans won’t be disappointed by the rising star’s use of the stage, lights, props, surprise guests, and audience participation to create a memorable inaugural performance.“There’s going to be a lot of crazy lights. We might blow a fuse.There will be a many moving parts––different people on stage, songs, dances, costumes, prompts. We’re even using a lift to lift me in the air,” McCague said.
McCague revealed that the show will be more than just his music; he wants to create an experience that combines the comedic lyrics in his parodies to humorous moments.“The show is going to be filled with inspirational, comedic, and fun monologues to give a real purpose and sense of being in the show. In between the songs I’m going to stop and thank everyone for coming out and then talk about being from the inner city,” McCague said.
Fans of Weird Music Records can expect the playlist to feature Krazy Kat songs like “Purrr,” and “Cat Party in the USA,” combined with old favorites from his first album, Stalkers Reloaded, and even premiere songs from his new album, Fifty Shades of Kray.

McCague is confident that he will continue with his tour after his kick-off concert gains recognition for the songs he has been working on for years. “It is going to be a tour because after the first show, more venues will want me,” McCague said.
He hopes that the production will be completed by December or January this winter. McCague is ready to make the next step by showing his peers and the BSM community his dedication to his parodies after hosting this year’s homecoming pep fest.“I’m most excited to fulfill one of my longest dreams and step up from just being an emcee to headlining my own tour,” McCague said.
