Mitt Romney Event

Drops $500k on Journey Concert

ANY WAY YOU WANT IT ... is exactly what the band Journey said when they were offered $500,000 to play a campaign event for Mitt Romney ... and they accepted, TMZ has learned.

Sources tell TMZ ... the shin-dig is set to go down at a private fundraising party in Tampa, FL on Thursday night while the Republican National Convention is in town. We're told the American Action Network threw down a whopping $500,000 to secure the 90-minute set.

Sources tell us ... Journey is NOT making a political statement by accepting the offer and made it clear -- it's just another gig.

Recently divorced Michaele Salahi will also be there (with an invite, no less) to cheer on her rocker boyfriend, Neal Schon.

We think Journey is worth every penny but if they wanted to save some money they could hire our Journey Tribute Band ANOTHER JOURNEY. We will do it for half of that price.

There so many problems in this country and you hada band. I hope you realize how many voters disagree. Make a good act of Contrition.

Uh    

Once again, a Presidential election turned into a Wrestlemania. Both candidates are like Congress..they do nothing. In the last election, one had only to read the Congressional record to know Obama was an effective speaker with a record of accomplishing nothing, Romney has switched his agenda so many times that is his agenda. We are doomed

"Journey is NOT making a political statement by accepting the offer and made it clear -- it's just another gig."

Fair enough: Journey has always epitomized everything that sucks about rock and roll, so they may as well get paid to be the whores they are.

Pretty amazing that Obama spends Millions of Tax Payers’ Dollars to party/fund raise with Hollywood’s Liberal Elite and TMZ worries about what Mitt Romney does with his money!

Word is that Obama has hired Wierd Al for $2 million to remind America how he's been yanking with our money for almost 4 years now. Romney 2012. Save America.
