Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga will perform at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in New York on June 24.

The event at the Plaza Hotel is being billed as a one-night only “intimate performance in support of Hillary for America.” They have been on their Cheek to Cheek tour.

Clinton will make remarks at the event, as the campaign seeks to boost fundraising totals before the June 30 quarter Federal Election Commission deadline.

According to the invite, there are a limited number of tickets for $1,000 per person, and $2,700 per person tickets for the premium section.

Those who raise at least $27,000 will be designated as event co-hosts, and those who raise at least $50,000 will serve as hosts. Host committee members will be invited to a reception with Clinton, receive premium tickets and attend an after-party with Bennett and Lady Gaga.

    Always knew Lady Gaga was obtuse, but this is confirmation. Facts are facts: Lady Gaga is gaga for Hillary Clinton who praised Margaret Sanger, a woman who wanted to KILL BLACKS poor and disabled people. Are blacks this STUPID that they would vote for Hillary Clinton? Lady Gaga you are seriously STUPID. No wonder Hillary is pimping herself out for Black lives matter. What a JOKE! OMG people wake up.Seriously! What is wrong with anyone who would vote for Hillary Clinton? You would have to hate blacks, disabled and poor people to support Hillary Clinton because this is what she values. People who do the same. Get it? Duh. You have been hoodwinked by the nefarious slick Clintons. They SECRETLY hate blacks. SECRETLY hate disabled. And the Clinton’s detest the poor. They are sociopaths preying on your ignorance. Vote for Berine now! Feel the Bern! Berning away the evil of the Clinton’s non stop lying and scandal machine.

    I agree. I love both performers but do not support Hillary. It makes me look at them differently. I try and separate the 2 issues but it’s hard. With a socialist agenda, which is what Hillary believes, the entertainers and politicians would be part of the protected class and wouldn’t be affected. The middle and lower class will get the short end of the stick. They profess to want to help but, Gaga and Tony don’t realize, it makes it worse for their fans.

    • Actually the wealthy do best economically under Republicans while middle, working and lower income classes do far worse under Republicans. If you actually cared about how *those* classes would do, you should be supporting a Democratic candidate (there are others running besides Clinton). I also suggest you take a few courses in economics and political systems because you are clearly clueless about what actual socialism is and how it functions both economically and politically. Clinton hasn’t even laid out her platform yet but when she does, it won’t be a socialist system she proposes.

    I wish all entertainers would stay out of politics, no matter who they support, they will be turning other people who are there fans off
    George Clooney’s latest movie is not doing well, I believe his politics, is showing at the box office
    Hillary Clinton receives $250,000.00 per speech, she doesn’t need Gaga to sell tickets to support her
