WASHINGTON (AP) – Jay Z, Katy Perry, Jon Bon Jovi and Jennifer Lopez are staging concerts around the country in support of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in the final weeks before Election Day.

Clinton’s campaign says rapper Jay Z will perform at a Get Out the Vote concert in Cleveland prior to Election Day. The campaign has not yet announced a date for the show.

Bon Jovi will headline concerts in Pittsburgh on Thursday and in Tampa, Florida, on Nov. 5.

Lopez will appear in Miami on Saturday to encourage Florida voters to back Clinton.

Perry will perform in Philadelphia on Nov. 5. The singer of “Roar” headlined a Clinton event in Des Moines, Iowa, last year and performed at this summer’s Democratic National Convention.
