Call it the second coming of Independence Day or the perfect excuse to wear that stars-and-stripes jacket, but dont 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. Thats right, the attention-grabbing Marine of the Iran-Contra scandal and current Fox News Channel political commentator will be onstage, doing, well, were 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 youll have to settle for the remaining seats priced at $42.25 and $86.75.
