The Red Hot Chili Peppers will play a free show on Sunday (April 15th) for volunteers working on the re-election campaign of President Barack Obama, according to Loudwire. The band, which is headed to Cleveland for its induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday (April 14th), decided to show its support for the incumbent commander-in-chief by booking the gig at the Cleveland House of Blues. To get in, all you have to do is sign up and show up to work on a phone bank in northeast Ohio and make calls for the Obama campaign.
The band has described the event as their way to help out with the campaign, while officials from the Obama camp said that this is the first time a rock band has offered its services.
The Chili Peppers are being inducted into the Hall of Fame this weekend alongside the Beastie Boys, Guns N' Roses, Donovan, the Faces, Laura Nyro and others.
The first leg of the band's North American tour in support of its latest album, I'm With You, ends on Thursday (April 12th) in Memphis, with the trek resuming on April 27th in Toronto.
The Chili Peppers are making each show on the current tour available for purchase as a downloadable live album.
