To benefit the Presidential campaign of nominee Barack Obama, two lauded musicians will join forces in a single concert. Bruce Springsteen aka The Boss and Billy Joel aka the Piano Man will hop on one stage for the first time ever next month in the bid to raise money for the Democratic candidate.

The concert is scheduled to take place on October 16 at Hammerstein Ballroom. A day before that Obama will conclude his debate with senator John McCain at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. Obama reportedly will also attend the show but will pay less for the tickets.

Those willing to attend the concert must rake in at least $500 for the tickets. The premiere seat costs $2,500 while the exclusive lounge seat is priced at $10,000. No clue yet whether the highest priced ticket will include a meeting with Obama or whether there would be additional performers for the considerably expensive concert.

Springsteen who has been confirmed to play at Super Bowl halftime show on February 1 in Tampa, Florida, is also set individually to support Obama in a concert held this Saturday, October 4 in Philadelphia.

its not right that stars do this kind of thing. People are going to see the stars not really for Obama.Obama is just showing he has friends with big money so what.I don't think stars or bands should show any support for any person running for office. All it show is Obama is a big actor and good on stage.he doesn't want to be known as a celebrity will this isn't the way to do it.
