Add The National to the growing list of musicians hopping on the Hillary Clinton train. Just days after the Democratic presidential candidates' campaign announced a series of all-star "Love Trumps Hate" events aimed at getting out the vote in key swing states, the Cincinnati, Ohio-bred rockers have announced that they will be going home to rally the faithful in pivotal swing state a week before election day.

The group revealed on Thursday morning (Oct. 20) that they will play in Cincinnati on Nov. 2 at a Get Out the Vote show at an as-yet-unannounced location. 

Previously announced LTH participant Katy Perry now has an official date for her performance as well: Nov. 5 in Philadelphia. While Perry has not hyped the show on her timeline yet, the loud and proud Hillary supporter was live tweeting the former Sec. of State's testy showdown with Republican Donald Trump during Wednesday night's (Oct. 19) final debate.





In addition to Perry and the National Jennifer Lopez and Jon Bon Jovi have signed on to perform for Clinton in the last few weeks of the election. According to the campaign scheduling siteBon Jovi is slated to perform in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 and Tampa on Nov. 5, while Lopez will be in Miami on Oct. 29; no additional event details had been announced at press time.
