Katy Perry, Elton John and Andra Day will be perform at a concert at Radio City Music Hall for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on March 2.

The concert, called “I’m With Her,” will feature Clinton, former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton. Tickets will start at $125 per person.

Clinton is scheduled to return to Los Angeles for a series of fundraisers on Feb. 22.

Perry performed at a Clinton rally in Des Moines, Iowa, last year in advance of the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. In 2013, when Clinton was on her book tour for “Hard Choices,” Perry attended an event with the former Secretary of State at CAA and told her that she would write a theme song for her “if she needs it.”

Clinton also got a big dose of celebrity endorsement from Lena Dunham earlier this year when the “Girls” creator took over her Instagram account while stumping for the candidate in New Hampshire.

Rival candidate Bernie Sanders also has some musical heavyweights on his team. The Red Hot Chili Peppers put on a concert for Sanders in Los Angeles earlier this month.

“Even if I voted just based on looks, which I might, I would vote for Bernie because he’s by far the cutest candidate ever,” frontman Anthony Kiedis said. Perhaps Perry will offer a counterargument.

        well perry was dumb and no talent enough to write that stupid Roar song that is more annoying than
        Hilderbeast and Obomba together. well maybe not that annoying but still annoying. and she’s ugly.

      WOW! A homosexual and as her dad calls her “devils child”. Now that is a winning combination for Hillary.

      Katy and Elton… why are these two supporting a woman who has proven she is NOT pro-women???

    5. DA Arakelian says:

      So they don’t care about supporting a liar, who will most likely be indicted? Hollywood double standard. If it were Bush they would hang him.

    6. Larry Texedor says:

      Wow!!! What a shame that these delusional celebrities buy in to garbage like Hillary. I wish they could live like me in the private sector working hard and wondering if I will ever have enough money to retire some day. Hillary becoming president is what nightmares are made of. I will NEVER listen to a song from either of these two idiots EVER again
