Ok, ok, ok. *Breathe*
Turns out my two loves have just combined in the most amazing way. Sport and pop music.
How so, I hear you ask?
When you think about cricket, you don’t really think about Katy Perry, right?
Wrong! So, here’s the deal. Katy Perry has been locked and loaded to perform at next years Women’s T20 Cricket World Cup Final at the MCG. It’s all taking place on March 8, just in time for International Women’s Day. What a hoot and a holla this is gonna be!
The organisers are expecting a new record crowd when it comes to a womens sporting event. I reckon, they’re in with a shot. We bang on about how hard it is to sell tickets to women’s games. But, let’s be real, we all know that womens sport is on the rise and it’s about bringing awareness to the sport. Yes, there is a need to sell more tickets to games, but that’s not going to come if the marketing isn’t there. Therefore, bringing in a heavyweight like Katy Perry, will bring in a bigger crowd, then those people that attend the game will tell 10 friends their experience at the MCG with Katy Perry while watching cricket.
Anyhow, Katy is thrilled:
“I’m all about celebrating equality and the achievements of women, which naturally happens on a global scale on International Women’s Day,” said Perry.
“It’s no coincidence that I said yes to performing live at the women’s final on this day.
“I hope to bring a unifying, electric performance playing some of my most empowering songs for the best female cricketers on the planet and some of my greatest fans, as we all unite to support gender equality and empower people to achieve everything that they desire.”
She will be performing before the match. So, what are you doing, March 8? Should we go?
In fact, shut up and take my money already!
