Katy Perry to perform at IPL opening ceremony


American pop star Katy Perry will perform during the opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League on April 3, the organizers announced on Tuesday.

The IPL Opening Nite will be held at the YMCA Grounds in Chennai a day before the start of the Twenty20 cricket league.

“We look forward to Ms. Perry’s participation at the DLF IPL 2012 Opening Nite. A performer of her calibre makes the occasion even more special for the IPL family – players, organisers and fans. The verve and originality of her music matches that of the competition and we look forward to an inspired performance from her,” IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla, said in a statement.

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan will also be part of the opening ceremony, which will begin at 7:30 pm.

The venue gates will be thrown open to the audience from 5:00 pm.

The sale of the tickets, pegged at a starting price of Rs. 1,500, would be on sale from March 16.

It should be on TV.... probably not in the US though since you guys don't have cricket.

I'm hoping this will be on tv here in Australia. I think we usually get the IPL games..... maybe the ceremony too. fingers crossed.

Exclusive: Katy Perry Dishes About Upcoming Trip to India!
- http://www.desihits.com/news/view/dh-exclusive-katy-perry-dishes-about-performance-in-india-20120328

DH!: Are you looking forward to your performance here in India?

Katy: I'm very much looking forward to performing in India for the first time, to be able to bring some of my California Dreams Tour to India and to be in India for my fans. I'm very excited to meet them and see them, and finally bring them some happiness in the form of music.

DH!: Are you a sports enthusiast? Have you been introduced to the delights of cricket?

Katy: I'm a sports enthusiast. I like to watch all kinds of different types of sports. I just performed for a sporting event - the Super Bowl - and had a fantastic time. I liked the spirit in the crowd, and the enthusiasm that the sport brings, and the community it brings together. I have not ever played cricket, but I'm excited to learn in India.

DH!: Your music, like the IPL, is a combination of styles and influences. Which of your songs celebrates the spirit of the competition?
Katy: I think "Firework" is the song that can give you that extra spurt of energy that you need when you're playing sports or in any type of competition because it has a very inspirational message, and a thumping beat in the background which always helps if you need a soundtrack for energy.
DH!: You will get together with some big Bollywood stars at the IPL 2012 Opening Nite. Your thoughts?

Katy: I'm very excited to be able to collaborate with some Bollywood stars in India for the IPL. I think Bollywood is amazing and fun and over-the-top, and I love to be involved with a lot of things that are over the top, so I think it's a good match. I really like their spirit, and charm and sense of humor, and I'm hoping that I can bring some Western love to Bollywood and then take home some Bollywood to the Western world.

DH!: What fashion accessory recommendation to our IPL stars his season?

Katy: Anything Adidas - I think it's comfortable and chic for your fitness.

DH!: You have a huge fan following in India, your message to all fans?

Katy: I'd like to say, "Hi everyone! I'm very excited! I know that everyone in India has waited for a very long time for me to come and perform professionally. I've enjoyed India on my own time personally, and now it's time to give back to the fans. I'm really excited to be a part of something really big in India and to soak up all the culture and beauty that is India, and to learn about the country and the people, and just have an incredible experience."
