Obama, Billy Joel & Bruce Springsteen

I just got this invite: Obama will be in NYC in a couple of weeks and will be at a concert to raise money for his campaign by Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen (!) at 8:30pm on Thursday, Oct. 16th.  Balcony seats are only $500 -- heck, I'd pay that even if it WASN'T for a good cause!  My wife and I just bought 2 tickets.  They will go fast, so book your seat now at: https://donate.barackobama.com/page/contribute/Oct16Concert.  Further details about this event and other Obama events are at the end of this email.
Good morning!

We wish everyone celebrating the Jewish New Year a very happy one.  Please forgive us for sending out notice of this special event.  With only 17 days until this event, we had to spread the word.  Besides, who can keep this big of a secret?!!! 

We’re very excited to announce Senator Obama’s last event in the Tri-State region before the election!  Please join us the evening of Thursday, October 16th for a very special concert with Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen and other exciting guests!  This is the first time that Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen will play the same concert!  Please see the attached invitation for more information and please read all of the important points below.
