Before they head over to Broadway for an evening fund-raiser at the New Amsterdam Theatre on June 4, President Obama and Bill Clinton will headline a gala dinner at the Waldorf Astoria with a special performance by Jon Bon Jovi.
It will not be the first time Clinton and Bon Jovi kept each other's company.
Individual tickets require a $2,500 donation, with $15,000 to be a host, or $35,800 to serve as a co-chair.
It will be Obama's second trip to New York since he came out in favor of same-sex marriage.
Maggie Haberman notes that there's also a smaller fund-raising event planned for that day at the home of Marc Lasry.
