OCT 13, 2012 – Bruce Springsteen had said earlier that he will not be playing music at any Obama rallies this year, but the Obama campaign has announced he has changed his mind and will play a Pima, Ohio event with VP Joe Biden. JTMP will post any video when it comes out, for now here is Bruce campaigning for Obama in Ohio back in 2008.
JUNE 6, 2012 – The Red Hot Chili Pepeprs threw a free concert for people who volunteered to make phone calls and knock on doors for President Obama's re-election campaign. The Obama team put out and awesome video (watch below) and they say:
"Supporters in Ohio rocked for Barack with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers after a weekend of action in April. Being Obama supporters, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers decided to throw a free concert to reward volunteers who held over 650 phone shifts in a four day period. Over half of those shifts were from brand new volunteers who had never volunteered before at the local OFA office.
As one fired up volunteer put it: "To work together and do phone-banking and volunteering and then get a concert afterwards as a reward—it's awesome." Get involved with the nearest Ohio office near you: https://my.barackobama.com/redhotchilipeppersvid"
