You probably heard the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be in town this weekend getting a little award from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame people.

Turns out they'll be sticking around an extra day to perform a free concert at House of Blues on Sunday. It's just for Obama supporters, but you can volunteer and get your tickets by signing up here.

Here's what we heard from the Obama camp:

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are planning to host a free concert for Obama supporters this Sunday afternoon, April 15th, at the Cleveland House of Blues to get Ohioans pumped up for the election in November. Concert doors will open at 11:45am and tickets are free as long as you sign up this week for a phone banking shift with the campaign, intended to help build the President’s organization in Ohio.

Looks like they'll be giving it away, giving it away, giving it away ... as long as you're willing to pick up a phone for the president. —Michael Gallucci
