from Billboard:

An announcement is expected tomorrow (Aug. 4) with details of the upcoming Vote for Change tour, presented by MoveOn.Org's political action committee MoveOn PAC and America Coming Together (ACT), an organization advocating change in government. The series is set to begin Oct. 1 in Pennsylvania and will include in the neighborhood of 40 shows in such presidential election "battleground" states as Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Missouri and Florida.

Sources say the format will be several concerts in different cities in one state on a given night; shows include R.E.M. with Bruce Springsteen, Dixie Chicks with James Taylor and Jackson Browne with Bonnie Raitt, along with performances by such acts as Jimmy Buffett, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews Band. A host of additional acts are expected to participate

Springsteen Joins Anti-Bush Concert Tour
The rocker will be among more than 20 artists performing shows in nine battleground states in October. They hope to raise money for Democratic campaign efforts and to sway voters toward Kerry.


NEW YORK -- Directly entering partisan politics for the first time, rock icon Bruce Springsteen will join a loose coalition of high-profile musicians in an unprecedented early October concert blitz aimed at mobilizing opposition to President Bush.
...
When it kicks off on Oct. 1, the tour will include six shows across Pennsylvania, ranging from Springsteen and R.E.M. in Philadelphia to Pearl Jam in Reading, Dave Matthews at State College and the Dixie Chicks in Pittsburgh.

The next night the artists will play six shows across Ohio, targeting communities ranging in size from Cleveland to Toledo; on Sunday, they will play in Michigan not only in Detroit and Ann Arbor, but Grand Rapids, a Republican stronghold.

After dividing across Minnesota, Missouri, Iowa, Wisconsin and North Carolina over the next few nights, all of the artists will hold concerts in six cities across Florida on Oct. 8.

My swing state isn't mentioned.

I wonder if a 6+ hour drive to Reading, PA to see Pearl jam will land me in divorce court. Maybe I can get on the TV show.

I've been peeing my pants ever since I heard rumors about this concert 3 weeks ago.

I'll be hopping up to St. Paul Oct. 5 to see Bruce/REM/BRight Eyes and down to Des Moines to see Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne.

Can't friggin' wait!

Will Bruce be solo or will he have The E Street Band with him? If so I think they will be writting for the new album together while on the road.
