Obama’s Next L.A. Visit: A Nokia Theater Concert

Details are still being worked out for President Obama’s Oct. 7 visit to Los Angeles for what is in all likelihood his final fundraiser in the city before the election, but the event is being billed as the “30 Days to Victory Concert and Dinner” at the Nokia Theater.

“This will be a large scale event with multiple performers and speakers preceding the President’s remarks,” reads an invite to the event. Tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster, priced from $250 to $5,000, with a limited number of tickets available for $44. A $10,000 ticket gets a photo and VIP access, according to the invite.

The concert will be followed by a high-dollar dinner at a nearby restaurant, with tickets starting at $25,000 or available to those who raise $250,000. The higher price point of $40,000 or those raising $500,000 includes a greet, photo and dinner.

Obama’s final L.A. events before the 2008 election raised more than $10 million, raised from a Barbra Streisand concert and a dinner at Greystone mansion.

Update: The dinner will be priced at $50,000 per couple, and $75,000 per couple as cohosts.
