DEM CONVENTION GOES HEAVY ON MUSICAL ACTS

The Democrats will again rock harder than the Republicans this month: Billie Eilish, The Chicks, Billy Porter and Leon Bridges w/Terrace Martin are among the acts performing during the four-night Democratic National Convention.

“In just three days, we will kick off a Democratic National Convention that will look and feel very different than past conventions. It will truly be a convention across America, and these incredible artists will help us tell the story of where we are as a country today under Donald Trump’s failed leadership, and the promise of what we can and should be with Joe Biden as president,” said Stephanie Cutter, 2020 Democratic National Convention Program Executive. “These artists are committed to engaging with, registering and mobilizing voters to get us over the finish line in November.”

John Legend, Common, Jennifer Hudson, Maggie Rogers, Prince Royce and Stephen Stills have also been announced as performers during the 8/17-20 convention.

Rogers and Bridges perform tonight; Eilish and Jennifer Hudson are booked for Wednesday; and The Chicks are on the final night, Thursday.

The Republicans, meanwhile, hope to reunite a lounge band that used to play the Trump Taj Mahal
