Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett performing at Hillary Clinton fundraiser

Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett are formally throwing their support behind presidential candidate Hillary Clinton by signing up to perform at a political fundraiser.

The duo, who have been performing live together for over a year, will host a concert for the Democrat on 24 June (15) in New York City.

Tickets for the bash will start at $1,000 and any donor who raises $27,000 will be named co-host of the event, while $50,000 will get a donor a hosting credit, a private reception with Clinton and an afterparty with the singers.

The news comes days after Bennett had to pull out of a London show for their Cheek to Cheek tour on Tuesday (09Jun15) after he was struck down with a bad bout of influenza.
