WASHINGTON (AP) — Rock stars Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel are teaming up for their first joint concert to benefit Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.
Obama plans to attend the concert at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Oct. 16, the day after Obama’s final debate with Republican John McCain at Hofstra University, located several miles outside the city in Hempstead, N.Y.
Seeing the two superstars together won’t come cheap. Tickets start at $500 and range up to $10,000.
Whatever. These tickets could cost $777 billion apiece and the batshit insane fans that these two have would pony it up in a New York minute. This will sell out, and fast. The combined rabid-fan power of the Boss, B. Joel and Obama is probably enough to obliterate planets.
At least this time around, liberal musicians are outright raising money for their guy, instead of participating in a fogey-laden “nonpartisan concert series” presented by Moveon.org — contradiction in terms much???
