Volunteers for President Obama’s Ohio campaign score tickets to Red Hot Chili Peppers show

Red Hot Chili Peppers are making plans to hit Cleveland for the big Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and while they’re in Ohio, they’re scheduling some extra time during the stop to play a special, politically-themed concert. Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer will perform a free concert at Cleveland’s House of Blues on Sunday (April 15) for local volunteers of President Obama’s reelection campaign.

According to Obama’s official site, local campaign volunteers who assist with the phone banks this week will score a free seat to the show. To get free tickets, fans need to head to the President’s official site and sign up to work a shift at one of Obama’s select Ohio phone banks this week. Doors for the Peppers show open at 11:45 a.m., but the specific time of the concert has yet to be announced.

Los Angeles-based funk-rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday, alongside Beastie Boys, Guns N’ Roses, Laura Nyro, Donovan the Faces and more.

In other Peppers news, the chaps are offering their fans a free five-song live EP via their website. Fans can submit their email addresses and, in turn, will score a free download of the EP, which offers live versions of songs taped during last year’s lengthy European tour. Songs on the set include “Give It Away,” “If You Have to Ask,” “Dani California,” “Look Around” and “Monarchy of Roses.”
