Obama returning Oct. 7 for fundraiser at Nokia Theater

clooney-obama.jpgAn email to Los Angeles area Obama donors says the concert evening will be "a large scale event with multiple performers and speakers preceding the President’s remarks," the Hollywood Reporter's Tina Daunt says in a story tonight. "Tickets to the concert are expected to be available through Ticketmaster starting early next week." A limited number of tickets are expected to go for $44 each, but one can also pay $10,000 for preferred seating, a VIP lounge and a photo with the president.

Obama will also attend a $40,00-per-couple dinner in Downtown Los Angeles, THR says. The dinner is being spearheaded by Jeffrey Katzenberg, the Hollywood executive who has been a leading fundraiser for the Obama reelection campaign.

Downtown would be a new venue for the traffic jams that accompany the president's fundraising trips to Los Angeles. But since October 7 is a Sunday, maybe there won't be any Obamajam — or if there is, maybe it's a good live-action practice run for the football stadium AEG hopes to build.
