Katy Perry 'Prism' Debut Concert To Feature Gal Pals Tegan and Sara, Kacey Musgraves and Ellie Goulding
Katy Perry has only announced one full concert for this fall, and it's going to be a big one. "We Can Survive," the name of the show, will pull double duty: Most importantly, all of the proceeds raised will benefit the Young Survival Commission, which helps young women suffering from breast cancer. As a side note, the show will also go down the day after Perry's "Prism" debuts, and the pop star will have plenty of girl power in support.
Among the other acts in attendance: Tegan and Sara, Sara Bareilles, Kacey Musgraves and Ellie Goulding. As Country Weekly pointed out, Perry might be borrowing some of her guest stars from buddy Taylor Swift. All of the acts (aside from Musgraves) appeared with Swift for surprise performances during her previous tour.
Perry told Carson Daly, however, that she respected all of the performers as powerful women.
"These are all very powerful women that I really respect and look up to and I wanted them to come together to promote this supportive message and have a fantastic night full of great music. There's so many great acts in this lineup. And I get to play a lot of songs off the record that will have come out the night before."
The "We Can Survive" Show will take place at Los Angeles's Hollywood Bowl during October to commemorate the month's role as "National Breast Cancer Awareness Month." Tickets go on sale Friday, September 27 at 10 A.M. However, Citi Thank You cardholders can access a presale beginning the preceding Tuesday.
