Legendary musician Eric Clapton rocked the stage at a private show in Los Angeles, and the event proved to be a huge success in raising funds for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential campaign. Clapton and Kennedy, who both consider themselves rebels in their respective fields, joined forces to bring in a whopping $2.2 million.
The private show took place on Monday night at a luxurious estate in Brentwood. Although the host of the event remains unknown, it’s clear that the venue was packed to the brim, considering the impressive amount of money raised. Clapton’s performance was the main attraction and drew a large crowd, contributing to the event’s success.
It’s important to note that this was not just a regular concert. The primary goal was to raise funds for Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s presidential campaign. Clapton’s musical talent and rebellious spirit made him the perfect choice for this fundraising event.
The tickets for the show came with a hefty price tag, starting at $3,300 for entry alone and going up to $6,600 for a chance to meet Kennedy himself. The exact details of the ticket tiers haven’t been disclosed, but it’s evident that enough people were willing to spend big bucks to support the cause.
Out of the impressive $2.2 million raised, $1 million immediately went towards Kennedy’s campaign, while the remaining $1.2 million went to a Political Action Committee (PAC) that supports him. This substantial contribution is undoubtedly a boost for Kennedy’s political aspirations.
Expressing his gratitude, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. thanked Eric Clapton for his involvement in the event, stating, “I am deeply grateful to Eric Clapton for bringing his musical artistry and rebellious spirit to my gathering.” He further acknowledged the power of music in unifying people, saying that artists like Clapton invoke a renewed faith in humanity’s ability to overcome any obstacle.
The collaboration between Clapton and Kennedy holds significance beyond their shared rebelliousness. Both have openly questioned COVID vaccines and other controversial topics, and their coming together for this cause highlights their shared values and determination to make a difference.
In a YouTube video teasing the performance, Eric Clapton showed his enthusiasm for the event, further solidifying his commitment to support Kennedy’s campaign. With Clapton’s musical prowess and Kennedy’s political vision, the $2.2 million raised is undoubtedly a significant boost for their collective aspirations.
