Katy Perry is set to be the first ever artist to perform at the iHEART RADIO THEATER L.A. as she holds her record release party there on October 22nd!
Katy will also be a doing a Q&A at the event and the entire concert will air on ALL 175 Clear Channel stations starting at 6 P.M. central time on October 22nd.
The performance will also be recorded and air on the CW Network October 25th. No word on how tickets will be sold or given away.
The theater is located at the former location of NBC Studios, where The Jay Leno show was at. You know, when Conan O'Brien took over the Tonight Show for a week and they gave Jay that giant lot where he raced cars and stuff? That lot.
"The iHEARTRADIO THEATER LOS ANGELES will create pop culture events that reach tens of millions of fans across the country live on the radio as well as further extending our reach to video streaming and television platforms. It is a way for us to expand our support for incredible superstars like KATY PERRY as well as exciting new and emerging artists," said CCM+E Pres./Entertainment Enterprises JOHN SYKES. "In addition, the new Theater will enable CLEAR CHANNEL and iHEARTRADIO to offer artists, labels and advertisers a variety of unique on-air and online promotional and sponsorship opportunities."
"We couldn't be more excited to have KATY PERRY be the one to break in our amazing iHEARTRADIO THEATER LA," said Pres./National Programming Platforms TOM POLEMAN. "Similar to our iHEARTRADIO THEATER in NEW YORK, our new theater gives artists like KATY PERRY the perfect stage to showcase their new projects in front of an intimate studio audience, while reaching millions more through our national broadcast audience."

Diagnosis: We predicted that Katy's new CD "PRISM" will sell over a million in it's first week and be the last million seller for quite some time. With that radio and TV deal, looks like we will be more than right.
