After getting married to comedian Russell Brand in India in October 2010, Katy Perry will return to the sub-continent next month to perform live at the opening ceremony of the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League on 3 April in Chennai.

IPL’s Chairman Rajeev Shukla said in a media statement, “We look forward to Ms Perry’s participation at the DLF IPL 2012 Opening Nite. A performer of her calibre makes the occasion even more special for the IPL family – players, organisers and fans. The verve and originality of her music matches that of the competition and we look forward to an inspired performance from her!”

This comes hot on the heels of Lady Gaga performing at the closing ceremony of the Formula One races in Noida, last year!

Also performing and making their presence felt at the IPL opening ceremony will be Bollywood stars Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra.

Ticket prices are rumoured to be around 1500rs
