Katy Perry Super Bowl Halftime Show

What The Super Bowl Halftime Show Means To Katy Perry

Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX: The Super Bowl halftime show is consistently the most viewed moments in television history. Over and over the Super Bowl commercials make it into the Guinness Book of World Records for “Most Viewed Commercial in T.V. History”, and the half-time show makes an equal impact. With over 100 million views on a regular basis, last year the half-time show performed by Bruno Mars WAS the most watched halftime in history at 115.3 million views. According to Nielsen the 2014 Super Bowl had 25.3 million tweets during it. The runner-up was Madonna‘s 2012 appearance, at 114 million views. This year, the Super Bowl has invited super star Katy Perry. On February 1, 2015 Katy Perry will be performing at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Beating out Coldplay, this is Katy Perry’s biggest performance yet. Strangely, although perhaps not surprisingly, artists do not get paid by the Super Bowl; merely they have their travel expenses covered by the NFL.

So what does Katy Perry actually get out of the show? Besides having her name permanently etched in history alongside the greatest music acts of all time, including Michael Jackson who performed in 1993, a performance that changed the Super Bowl forever, making it a celebrity event ever since.

In 2009, the Hello Katy Tour put Katy Perry at an astounding eighty-nine concerts. The attendance was 76,485 and grossed $1,508,092.00. This number does not include any of her merchandise or records. The tour took Katy Perry and her fans across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia and lasted from January 23, 2009 through November 28, 2009. Her set list was seventeen songs and an additional encore of two songs. At that time, Katy was fresh on the market and her songs were running the radio airwaves. Everyone knows “I Kissed a Girl” and “Don’t Stop Me Now”, a cover from Queen.

Katy Perry’s California Dream Tour was her next. It lasted February 20, 2011 through January 22, 2012, almost a full calendar year. She did forty-six shows in Europe, eleven in Oceania, six in Asia, sixty-one in North America, and three in South America, totaling 127 shows. The result was an astounding 1,088,817 attendees and ticket sales of $51,834,881.00, and again, that’s not including merchandise and records.

Katy Perry’s third world tour broke those records by almost three times the amount of money made. It lasted May 7, 2014 and is still going through March 22, 2015. Tickets sold result in 130 concerts in four legs of the tour. The sales mean 1,131,823 tickets and sales totaling $142,850,951 as of the first of the year. That still leaves 21 more dates scheduled after February 16th!

What is amazing about Katy Perry performing at the Super Bowl is her unparalleled success already.

After his performance during the 2014 Super Bowl, Bruno Mars “Jukebox” sales jumped 164%, according to Billboard. There were also boosts in record sales immediately following Beyonce, Madonna, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen.

So what will this mean for Katy Perry?

Bruno Mars’ “The Moonshine Jungle Tour” was already full swing before he played the Super bowl halftime show and the North American leg of the tour had an average ticket price on the secondary market of $210.00 per ticket. After the halftime show rose to almost $550.00 per ticket, beating out the likes of Beyonce with Jay Z at $200.00 per ticket, One Direction with a $256.00 per ticket, and Justin Timberlake who had a $195.00 per ticket. The Half Time Show put Bruno Mars at more than double any of his fellow top-ranking performers.

So what will this mean for Katy Perry? And her fans? Katy Perry Ticket Prices on the Secondary Market for her European leg of the tour that will resume after the Halftime Show have an average of $228.00 per ticket. We can expect her ticket prices to rise immediately after her performance. Katy Perry’s current Prismatic Tour had its second leg of the tour in North America from June 22nd – Oct 11th 2014 and hasn’t announced any more dates yet. But, if she uses the Super Bowl Halftime Show to promote more tour dates, you can expect to see a 161.90% rise in Katy Perry tickets in the secondary market based on the metric rise in Bruno Mars ticket prices on the secondary market after his.

Miley Cyrus & Katy Perry

Miley & Katy

The year 2013 has already ended and we have bid our goodbyes to the past year and all the buzz created in the music scene—from Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance to Taylor Swift’s number in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But if you’re thinking that 2013 has gone for good, some songs will prove you wrong. Here is the Top 20 in Billboard’s Top 100 in the first week of 2014.

20. Unconditionally – Katy Perry
From last week’s number 23, Katy Perry’s “Unconditionally” has climbed to 20. Looks like the Katy Cats really love her unconditionally.

Dropping one slot from last week’s number 18, “Team” is now at number 19. Looks like some people left the team.
18. White Walls – Macklemore and Ryan Lewis feat. ScHoolboy Q & Hollis
This is the song that changed places with “Team”, moving up from last week’s number 18 to 19.
17. Drunk in Love – Beyonce feat. Jay-Z
Dropping 5 slots, Queen B’s “Drunk in Love” is now pitched at 17. Apparently, people have decided to stay sober at the beginning of the year.

The winter season is all about sweaters and The Neighbourhood knows this perfectly. “Sweater Weather” just went up from 17 to 16.
15. Hold On, We’re Going Home – Drake feat. Majid Jordan
From 13 last week, this track has gone 2 notches down, slating at 15. Some people don’t want to go home just yet.

Up from 20, “23” is now at number 14, with some help from the sensational Miley.
13. Burn – Ellie Goulding

11. Dark Horse – Katy Perry
Living by its title, Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” has emerged from Top 14 to 11, climbing its way up.
10. Wake Me Up! – Avicii
Down two places, it seems like people still have no desire to be woken up.
9. Story of My Life – One Direction

One Direction


The British boy group’s latest track attests to their charm, climbing from last week’s number 10. Getting off one world tour and jumping right back on another the lads will be playing giant arenas such as two nights at the Pasadena Rose Bowl where a total of 180,000 screaming fans will be packed into see them. One Direction Tickets for the Rose Bowl concerts are available now.
8. Roar – Katy Perry
Moving up from Top 11, “Roar” is still a favorite girl anthem. Katy Perry Tickets for her 2014 World Tour will be going on sale in the next couple of months.
7. Let Her Go – Passenger
Staying strong at number 7 is Passenger’s “Let Her Go”—because the New Year is all about letting go.
6. Demons – Imagine Dragons
Staying at the same spot, “Demons” is still in the Top 10.
5. Say Something – A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
Down from Top 4, is “Say Something” – a collab between A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera.
4. Royals – Lorde
Another song from Lorde, this time in the Top 10 and moving up from last week’s Top 5.
3. Counting Stars – One Republic
One Republic is still a crowd favorite with their track remaining at number 3.
2. Timber – Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
Holding fast in Top 2 is “Timber”. We’ll see how strong this song can cling to its spot. (Or how it can potentially rank first.)
1. The Monster – Eminem feat. Rihanna
Starting the year right, still at the top spot is Eminem’s “The Monster”, from the practically legendary Eminem. Rumor Mill has it that Eminem will be playing a limited number of concerts in the United States and Europe in the end of 2014. By:Dani Kelly.

One Direction New Album Cover

One Direction New Album Cover

Ok sorry for the bad Superman pun, but you will get what I am talking about when you see the cover for the hugely anticipated second album from UK wonder boys One Direction.
The cover for there second album called Take Me Home sees the boys messing around next to, on top of and inside a phone booth. It does a great job of capturing the bands fun side and I am sure that there millions of fans are just going to eat this up.

Tuesday November 13th will be the day that legions of fans will be cueing up as that is when Take me Home hits store shelves. September 24th will be the premier of the first single Live While We’re Young is heard and it will be available for download on October 1st. Its crazy to think that just a short while ago Louis, Zayn, Niall, Harry and Liam were four strangers who were thrown together on reality TV show X-Factor in the UK.

There rise to the top has been nothing short of amazing. many thought the era of boy bands was gone, but One Direction are proving otherwise. There fun brand of music has captured the hearts of fans all around the world. It is not just music either these guys are plastered on all kinds of merchandise that is flying off store shelves from east to west.

In this day and age when so many musicians are obsessed with being so deep and serious and having there music seen as art. It is really cool to see some nice and down to earth guys who are just having fun. I think that is the main reason why these guys have been so successful and people have really gotten behind these guys.

One Direction will be at the Los Angeles Staples Center on Aug 07 & 8 2013. Tickets for the concert are onsale now.
