Jay-Z shows will support Obama

October 02, 2008|Randy Lewis

Rapper and music mogul Jay-Z is set to spend this weekend urging his fans to register to vote, and then to vote for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama. He'll perform free shows on Saturday in Detroit and Sunday in Miami, just before the voter registration deadline for the Nov. 4 presidential election..

The announcement comes a day after Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel said that they'll team up for an Obama fundraiser on Oct. 16 in New York City at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Tickets for that benefit will run from $500 to $10,000.
