Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen Unite for Barack Obama
It's a rock history first! Billy and the Boss together in concert -- all to benefit Barack Obama's presidential campaign.
The epic team-up is set for Oct. 16 at NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom, and Obama will be there rocking out to Joel and Springsteen's endless hits with the rest of the crowd, says the Associated Press.
Which begs the question: How much does it cost to see this legendary pairing? According to the AP, tickets run between $500 and $10,000. Pricey, but then, it's perhaps the only chance you'll ever get to play air guitar to "Big Shot" and "Born in the USA" live on the same night.
Springsteen is also slated to perform this Saturday at an Obama rally in Philadelphia.
