Katy Perry and her celeb friends Sara Bareilles, Ellie Goulding, Tegan & Sara and Kacey Musgraves will take over the Hollywood Bowl on October 23rd for a special concert benefiting the Young Survival Coalition.
“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." The Young Survival Coalition is dedicated to helping young women diagnosed with breast cancer, and the event is appropriately titled "We Can Survive." 1 in 8 American women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and contrary to popular belief, many of them will be young. There are an estimated 250,000 women under 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer living in the U.S. today.
The “We Can Survive” concert, presented by Citi, will take place one day after the release of Katy’s fourth studio album, Prism. The album's leading single "Roar" is all about staying strong through life's hardships, so it comes as no surprise that Katy is putting on such an epic charity event. Tickets will be available on Ticketmaster starting Friday, Sept. 27 at 10 a.m. PT, and 100 percent of proceeds will go toward YSC's awesome cause.
