Change Rocks: A Concert to Benefit Obama
The Pennsylvania Campaign for Change has finalized both the details and the ticket information for Change Rocks: A Concert to Benefit Obama. As previously reported, the benefit concert will feature the first appearance by all four surviving members of The Dead since 2004, as well as the Allman Brothers Band. Given the events political slant, the various musicians are being billed under their own names instead of The Dead and the Allman Brothers Band.
As first reported by Relix/Jambands.com, the Obama for America benefit will take place at State College, PAs Bryce Jordan Center on Monday, October 13. The show is expected to be a very large voter outreach opportunity for the Pennsylvania Obama campaign, which has already built the largest volunteer based campaign in Pennsylvanias history. The campaign has more than 70 field offices and thousands of volunteers preparing for ‘an unprecedented Get Out the Vote operation.’ There are now more than 1 million more Democrats in the state than Republicans, an increase of 500,000 since 2004.
Tickets will be available at 12:00 PM EST on Friday, September 19, and are $50 for the general public/$30 for University Park students with a Pennsylvania State University ID. More ticket information is available online at www.barackobama.com/psu.
