Kelly Clarkson, the original “American Idol” winner and award-winning pop star, will be in town this weekend to open the new Microsoft store in Walden Galleria.

But don’t expect to see her in the new Microsoft store in Walden Galleria.

Here are the details from Natalie Tronolone, the mall’s assistant marketing director:

“As part of Microsoft’s grand-opening celebration, they are giving away tickets to see her perform at the Burt Flickinger Center. The first 100 people in line will receive VIP meet & greet tickets and the following 1,500 people or so will each receive two concert tickets.”

She said the line is allowed to start at 10 p.m. today and the store will open at 10 a.m. Saturday. The concert is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Flickinger Center, and she said people should begin lining up there at 3 p.m. with gates opening at 5.

Microsoft is using a similar promotion in other markets.
