Washington: Red Hot Chilli Peppers will reportedly perform a free concert for people working on Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in Ohio.

According to the Plain Dealer, the Los Angeles-based group will perform a free concert for Obama campaign workers at the House of Blues in Cleveland Sunday afternoon, following the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Saturday night, the Politico reported.

The group, which supports the US President, saw giving a free concert as a way to help him, an Obama campaign official in Ohio said.

To get into the concert, fans must be willing to work for the Obama campaign this week by volunteering at any Northeast Ohio phone bank. A link was activated Monday night allowing people to volunteer.
