The Beastie Boys have added three shows to their swing state tour in support of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. The "get out the vote" trek will now begin Oct. 27 in Charlotte, N.C., with Sheryl Crow and Santogold on the bill.

Crow, Ben Harper and Norah Jones will support two nights later in Youngstown, Ohio, while Crow and Harper will play Oct. 30 in Dayton, Ohio.

Jack Johnson, Tenacious D and David Crosby and Graham Nash are on board in various incarnations for three other shows on Oct. 28 in Richmond, Va., Nov. 1 in St. Paul, Minn., and Nov. 2 in Milwaukee.

"This election is too important to stay at home," the Beasties said. "We hope that you can come out, have a nice night, dance, sing, get your freak on, and then wake up the next morning and get everyone that you possibly can to get out and vote."
