The “California Gurls” singer will perform at the Obama “30 Days To Victory” fundraising concert in Los Angeles on October 7 according to the Hollywood Reporter. The other acts on the bill at the Nokia Theater show have not been announced, but tickets will be available from the campaign starting at $44 per person for supporters under the age of 40. General admission for the show is $250 a person. Spokespeople for Nokia and Perry could not be reached for confirmation at press time.
The concert will be followed by a dinner with the president hosted by Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg at a local restaurant, with tickets for that event starting at $25,000.
Though the star power on both sides of the political spectrum has dimmed considerably since the 2008 election, Obama has been the beneficiary of support from a number of A-list stars during the campaign season. In addition to the $40,000 per person shindig at Jay’s 40/40 Club on Tuesday, George Clooney hosted an Obama event at his Los Angeles home, director Tyler Perry held one at his Atlanta mansion and Sarah Jessica Parker hosted a party at her New York townhouse in June that raised $2 million.
Other celebs who’ve stepped forward to support Obama include Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Spike Lee, Julia Roberts, Dave Grohl, Ellen DeGeneres, Jessica Alba, Alicia Keys, Jon Bon Jovi, Cher and Cee Lo Green.
