Katy Perry and some of her favorite artists Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding, Tegan & Sara and Kacey Musgraves will take over the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Calif. for a special concert benefitting the Young Survival Coalition on Wednesday, Oct. 23.
“These are all very powerful women that I really respect and look up to,” Perry told Carson Daly this morning on 97.1 AMP, “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.”
Tickets for “We Can Survive” go on sale Friday, Sept. 27 at 10:00 a.m. PT through Ticketmaster. Pre-sale for Citi Thank You card-members begins on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10:00 a.m. PT, including VIP packages with exclusive access to Katy’s pre-concert soundcheck.
Proceeds from “We Can Survive” will go to support Young Survival Coalition, the premier global organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the annual campaign to bring attention to, and share information on the disease.
The “We Can Survive” concert, presented by Citi, will come one day after the release of Katy’s newest album, PRISM, featuring the smash No. 1 single “Roar.”
