Jay Z is set to perform a concert in support of Hillary Clinton in Ohio. The show is set to take place on Friday, November 4th in Cleveland in an effort to mobilize young voters in the swing state. The location of the performance is, at the moment, undisclosed.
Event organizers said in a statement, "tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis near the Cuyahoga County Board of elections at 3030 Euclid Avenue from Friday, October 28th to Sunday, October 30th, and beginning on Monday, October 31st at Hillary for Ohio campaign offices."
According to Buzzfeed, the concert is "aimed at mobilizing black voters." The outlet adds, "A Democratic source familiar with the concert said they wouldn't be surprised if Cleveland Cavaliers star Lebron James made an appearance after endorsing Clinton earlier this month." The reigning NBA Finals MVP said in an op-ed recently published in The New York Times, "Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty. And when I think about the kinds of policies and ideas the kids in my foundation need from our government, the choice is clear. That candidate is Hillary Clinton."
Rolling Stone reports, "Jay Z joins Ohio's own the National, who will perform in Cincinnati, and Jennifer Lopez, with a Miami concert on October 29th, who will do last-minute swing state stumping for Clinton."
