Moveon.org is sponsoring a Vote for Change Tour featuring a number of high-profile acts. They’ll be in our area quite a bit come one day in October:

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band / R.E.M. / John Fogerty / Bright Eyes
Sunday, Oct. 3 – Ann Arbor

Dave Matthews Band / Jurassic 5 / My Morning Jacket
Sunday, Oct. 3 – Detroit

Dixie Chicks / James Taylor
Sunday, Oct. 3 – Detroit

All the artists involved have signed a pledge they are “fighting for a government that is open, rational, just, and progressive.”

Also, here’s what Dave Matthews had to say:

“A vote for change is a vote for a stronger, safer, healthier America. A vote for Bush is a vote for a divided, unstable, paranoid America. It is our duty to this beautiful land to let our voices be heard. That’s the reason for the tour. That’s why I’m doing it.”

In other news, this event was also announced locally on the newly-launched U-M College Democrats Blog: Kicking Ass Ann Arbor.
