The musical portfolio of U.S. Rep. Tom Price, R-Roswell, keeps growing and growing.
Earlier this month, we found out that Price had been to a Jimi Hendrix concert in ’69, and still has the ticket.
But the man gets ever wilder. Tonight, it’s Neil Diamond. Politico reports that Price has built a fund-raising operation for his political action committee, Voice for Freedom, around a series of concerts at Washington’s Verizon Center.
After this evening’s Diamond concert comes Coldplay, Rod Stewart, Stevie Nicks and Madonna. The per-ticket cost is $1,500, with a pair for $2,500. For $5,000, Price will let you wave his encore lighter. For $6,000, he promises not stand on his seat and to shout “Freebird!”
