Streisand, Diamond, James Taylor and Bon Jovi To Do Concerts 29 May 2004
To Support John Kerry


To say the music industry doesn’t like George W. Bush would be an understatement. The Eagles recently did a benefit show in Vegas for the $2,000 a plate crowd and now there are two more shows slated to raise money for Democratic presidential candidate, John Kerry.

The first show featuring Neil Diamond and Barbara Streisand makes me want to vote for Bush but will appeal to the well-to-do, older crowd and will be held at the stunning new, Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.

The second show entitled “A Change is Going To Come” is scheduled with an odd pairing of performers including both James Taylor and Bon Jovi as well as celebrity appearances from Robin Williams, Bette Midler and Whoppi Goldberg. Despite the star-studded line up, even my parents who are pretty dedicated Democrats, would leave right after the Bon Jovi part of the concert in New York.

Democrats have the support of the music industry and Hollywood and could very likely deliver the electorally valuable states of California and New York in the upcoming elections (no small feat) however they are going to need to book some more hip concerts to rally younger voters to their cause and or to hope to keep up with president Bush with his fundraising. Like him or hate him like a Hollywood movie mogul, you gotta be impressed with the way the RNC can pack a room for a $2,000 per plate dinner.
