The event, titled “A Fabulous Evening with Vice President Joe Biden,” will take place virtually on June 11 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Headlined by Streisand and Legend with more special guests to be announced, the fundraiser will benefit Biden’s Victory Fund, which is a committee consisting of the Biden campaign, the DNC and 26 state parties to beat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
According to the event invite, tickets start at $2,800 for a guest spot. A $5,600 donation garners “supporter” status, $41,000 is considered a “sponsor” donation and includes a VIP clutch and for $100,000 attendees can be deemed a “host.”
Streisand and Legend join other musicians and celebrities who have pledged to support Biden through appearing at his fundraisers. On Thursday, Biden’s Victory Fund is hosting another music-oriented fundraiser, called “Rock Out on a Night In with Vice President Joe Biden.” Whoopi Goldberg and senator Tammy Duckworth are co-hosting the event, with performances by Joe Walsh, Sheryl Crow, David Crosby, Rufus Wainwright and Jimmy Buffett. Tickets for “Rock Out on a Night In” start at $250 for a guest spot, and increase incrementally with $100,000 warranting a “co-chair” title.
Both Streisand and Legend have shown their support for Democratic presidential candidates in the past, each performing for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama during their campaigns. Legend initially endorsed Senator Elizabeth Warren and appeared at several of her events in South Carolina earlier in the presidential race.
