(ANI): American singers Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel are
teaming up for their first joint concert that will benefit
Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama. Springsteen, also
known as The Boss, and Joel will be holding the concert in New York
City this month, with the price of the tickets starting at 500
dollars, and climbing to 10,000 dollars.
Obama will be attending the musical fundraiser at Hammerstein
Ballroom on October 16, a day after his final debate with John
McCain at Hofstra University, which is located several miles
outside the city in Hempstead. After the news about the concert was
made public on September 30, the Republican National Committee just
could not help but make fun of it, at Obama's expense.
McCain is working to bring Republicans and Democrats together,
Barack Obama was working to bring rock stars together," Fox News
quoted RNC spokesman Alex Conant as saying. "A good duet is no
substitute for a good job," he added.
