Rocker Elton John will perform a solo concert in New York to raise money for his “good friend” Hillary Clinton’s primary campaign.

In announcing the concert, John said via e-mail: “There is nothing I like better than throwing a party for a good friend. Will you come out to support my friend Hillary Clinton at a special, one-night-only solo concert in New York? I promise this will be one night that you won’t want to miss.”

Bill and Hillary Clinton will be on hand at the April 9 concert. Tickets start at $125 and range up to $2,300.

Supporters are invited to join the Elton-Hillary Event Committee, and members who raise $10,000 or more will be invited to a private reception with Elton and the Clintons.

“I’m not a politician but I believe in the work that Hillary Clinton does,” the singer said in a statement.

“I’m excited to support Hillary by performing at what will be a truly memorable night.”

Last October, Clinton held a star-studded fundraiser in New York to celebrate her 60th birthday. Comedian Billy Crystal and rockers Elvis Costello and the Wallflowers headlined the event, which brought in more than $1.5 million for Hillary’s presidential campaign.
