Global pop superstar Katy Perry will perform exclusively at the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 on Sunday 8 March – International Women’s Day – at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Performing during both the pre-game show and the post-match celebration, Perry will be part of what is anticipated to be the biggest women’s cricket match of all time.
The final at the MCG, to be played under lights, presents a ground-breaking opportunity to set a new world record for attendance at a women’s sporting fixture on the day when equality and women’s achievements are celebrated globally. The current record crowd of 90,185 was set at the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup final in Pasadena, California.
“I’m all about celebrating equality and the achievements of women, which naturally happens on a global scale on International Women’s Day. 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.”
ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee CEO, Nick Hockley is excited to welcome Perry to Australia for the event.
“We are seeing incredible momentum in the development of cricket as a sport for women and girls. ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia is a perfectly timed opportunity to accelerate this change.
What better way to celebrate than the T20 World Cup final at the MCG on International Women’s Day and who better to lead that celebration than Katy Perry, who is an inspiration to girls and boys across the world.”
Perry’s appearance at the final will be the singer’s only performance during this visit to Australia.
So, I’m assuming you’re coming down to Melbourne, Monty?
