David Crosby, Sheryl Crow, Joe Walsh, Rufus Wainwright and Jimmy Buffett will perform during Rock Out on a Night In With Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday, May 28th at 8 p.m. ET, as Variety reports.
Whoopi Goldberg will moderate a virtual fundraiser next week with former vice president Joe Biden.
Hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth, the streaming virtual fundraising event will feature “virtual conversations and performances,” according to the event invitation, where tickets are available.
“I met Joe Biden years ago at the first LGBTQ reception since the Clinton administration hosted by Obama at the White House. It was an incredibly moving event. I met a lesbian couple who were in tears. They said all their lives they have been protesting outside of the White House and now they were invited in,” Wainwright wrote on Instagram. “I was impressed with Joe Biden’s sincerity, energy, enthusiasm and embrace of the LGBTQ community. It is now an honor to support his campaign by singing at a virtual fundraiser for his campaign tomorrow.”
Recently David Crosby had suffered a serious loss with the death from overdose of the son of Melissa Etheridge, of whom he was the biological father.
Etheridge and girlfirend Cypher, who met in 1988 during a video shoot, have two children — their daughter Bailey and son Beckett. For several years after their children were born, people speculated about who was the sperm donor for their children. In 2000, the couple revealed it was fellow musician David Crosby.
Even virtually, entrance to political fundraisers doesn’t come cheap; a limited number of $250 Guest and $500 Supporter tickets are available, with further donation levels ranging from $1,000 to $100,000. Find out more and sign up for attendance via Biden’s website.
