Katy Perry, Elton John to Headline Hillary Clinton Fundraising Concert

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.
