Bruce, Billy and Barack

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008 • No Comments on Bruce, Billy and Barack

Is it crazy that I would contemplate spending $2,500 for a concert ticket but refuse to part with my sixteen year old Miata?  Yeah, that’s what I thought.  I don’t care—I’m all about the experience and what a freakin’ awesome experience this would be:

The Piano Man and the Boss are putting on a show for Obama.

Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen will do a benefit concert for Senator Barack Obama’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee next month at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Oct. 16.

(found via The Caucus, The New York Times Political Blog and Twitter’s Election 2008 page)

Tickets are reported to start at $500 for balcony seating and go up to $2,500 for premiere seating and $10,000 for lounge seating.  But when I go to the Barack Obama contribution page, there isn’t a button for the $500 tickets.  I suppose they must have already sold out.  Not that I would spend that kind of money for concert tickets.

Ah, who am I kidding?  I would.  In a heartbeat. 

$2,500 is a little harder to justify, though.  Even if Barack is going to make an appearance.
