Kelly Clarkson to stage free show at Hollywood & Highland


Playing a concert in a mall may not be the world's most enviable gig for a pop star, but in the case of Kelly Clarkson, at least it's being televised.

The singer is to appear for a free mini-set at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue on Monday. A portion of the concert, part of the nationwide Summer Krush series sponsored by a major electronics company and a wireless carrier, will be broadcast on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" 

The concert begins at 8 p.m., and fans will be let into the mall courtyard at about 6 p.m. To RSVP for the free event, fans can visit this website

Last year, Mariah Carey performed at the Hollywood & Highland complex as part of the series. If Carey's concert is the template, fans can expect about five songs at the event. The "Kimmel" show has staged a few outdoor Hollywood concerts, including performances by Coldplay and Depeche Mode. At the Carey concert inside the Hollywood & Highland complex, a crowd of about 2,000 was considered maximum capacity. 

Clarkson is touring to promote her March release "All I Ever Wanted." The album has sold 694,000 copies to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
