June 23, 2004 12:00 AM ET

The Dave Matthews Band will make its only New York City appearance of the summer to play "A Change Is Going to Come," a benefit concert for presidential candidate John Kerry, on July 8th at New York's Radio City Music Hall. Mary J. Blige, Jon Bon Jovi, Wyclef Jean, John Mellencamp will be among the other performers.

"Whether one is talking about the economy or the environment, jobs, workers' rights or education, national security or the war on terror, John Kerry is the only choice," says Matthews. "A vote for John Kerry is a vote for a stronger, safer, better America."

The event was originally scheduled for June 10th but was cancelled in deference to the observance of Ronald Reagan's death.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
