Katy Perry headlining Capital One JamFest

JamFest is part of the NCAA March Madness Music Series

Katy Perry is headlining Capital One JamFest on Sunday, April 7th in at The Armory in Minneapolis. The free show is the culmination of the NCAA March Madness Music Series, a three-day free concert series for fans whether or not they have tickets to the games.

Capital One cardholders can reserve free passes for the concert beginning March 19th at 10 am. The general public can request passes beginning March 22nd.

Perry recently teamed with Zedd for “365.” The video, directed by Warren Fu (The Weeknd, Daft Punk) and conceptualized by Perry, asks the question: Could an AI learn to love? The video tells the poignant story of an android Katy Perry, who yearns to be human, as she attempts to make a genuine connection with Zedd.

In her ten years with Capitol Records, Perry has racked up a cumulative 30+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 43+ million adjusted albums and 133+ million tracks. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the ten million threshold including song sales and streams, Perry became the first artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. Perry’s 2015 Super Bowl performance is the highest-rated in the event’s history. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter, and the first to surpass 100 million followers. She is the only female artist to have four videos surpass a billion views each. Her videos for “Firework” and “Last Friday Night” have over one billion views, while “Roar” and “Dark Horse” have surpassed the two billion mark.

Capital One cardholders have the opportunity to gain access to exclusive events, which helps turn special moments into unforgettable memories. Capital One is on a mission to help people share incredible experiences with their friends and family, and are thrilled to offer customers exclusive access to unique and memorable events that they are passionate about across travel, dining, entertainment, sports and more.
