Freedom Just Ain't Free

Call it the second coming of Independence Day or the perfect excuse to wear that stars-and-stripes jacket, but don’t call Freedom Concert ’09 a concert. Yeah, there will be music or whatever by “Achy Breaky Heart” pioneer Billy Ray Cyrus and Lee Greenwood (best known for the tugging-at-the-heartstrings hit “God Bless the USA”), but this Sean Hannity-hosted Republican convention in disguise is actually headlined by Oliver North. That’s right, the attention-grabbing Marine of the Iran-Contra scandal and current Fox News Channel political commentator will be onstage, doing, well, we’re not sure what. Maybe wearing a stars-and-stripes jacket?

A concert. Yeah, sure.

One piece of bad news, though: the $114 and $141 tickets are all gone (ah, man) so you’ll have to settle for the remaining seats priced at $42.25 and $86.75.
