Potentially Engaged Katy Perry Opens Ski Season in Austria

Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 7, 2009 2:14 pm

Ischgl, an Austrian ski resort, announced that the pop star Katy Perry will highlight the opening weekend of the 2009-10 ski season.  On Nov. 28, Katy Perry will appear live in concert to kick off the ski season.  20,000 fans are expected to gather for the concert. The ski lifts are scheduled to open on Friday, Nov. 27.

Ischgl has previously brought in performers such as Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Diana Ross and Sting for past events. While last season’s opening concert featured Leona Lewis and Gabriella Cilmi, Kylie Minogue closed out the 2008-09 Ischgl season on May 2 with a daytime show on the mountain.

24-year-old Perry is known for her hits “I Kissed a Girl” and “Thinking of You.” A one-day ski pass for Nov. 28 costs 55 euros ($78). Entry to the concert is free with a ski pass.

The engaged scoop:  Katy Perry was recently spotted wearing a diamond ring in Los Angeles.  Reports state her boyfriend, Travis McCoy, frontman for Gym Class Heros, is the likely suitor.
