Katy Perry to Perform Free Concert in Philadelphia
Katy Perry will hold a free concert in Philadelphia a few days before the presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced this morning.
Perry, a pop-rock superstar with nine number-one singles in the U.S. and more than 100 million records sold worldwide, will perform at a yet-to-be-determined location in Philadelphia on November 5th, the Saturday before the election. The Clinton campaign has not yet announced how tickets will be distributed, but they’ll be free.
Perry performed “Rise” and “Roar” at the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in July. The performance is part of Clinton’s Love Trumps Hate series, which will have performances around the country by Perry, Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Lopez, and other artists.
“The performance series will feature a number of artists performing in battleground states who will energize our supporters,” a release from the Clinton camp says, “and encourage them to turn out to vote on Election Day or to take advantage of early voting options in their states.” There’s no early voting (besides absentee) in Pennsylvania, so Perry will have to stick to encouraging voters to head to the polls on Tuesday.
The Clinton campaign says more information about Perry’s free concert will be released soon.
