Following the concert, Obama will speak to about 150 guests at a $25,000 per person fundraising dinner Wolfgang Puck's 24th floor restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton that's next to L.A. Live with the money going to Obama’s reelection fund, according to the LA Times.

Why do you come to Los Angeles, take care of your presidential duties. You know you have the votes of the people of California, so you are only here for cash. If you were doing a good job, your reelection would be easy. I wish I felt compelled to vote for you, I'll take my chances with Mr. Romney, maybe he'll be appropriate with our allies in the world and in turn appropriate with our enemies.

I'm glad he is collecting this money to offset the onslaught that will come from the Republicans one week before the election A little inconvenience today will help to give us four good years in the future for more people will have medical coverage... and the rich will pay more of their share of taxes before sending their money off-shore

I have to go to WeHo today and looked at this article to find out what to do re: iternary. This article was just too vague. I am disappointed.

i didn't realize until too late that my comments might be construed as a criticism of the President. I merely was disappointed by the reporting. I am in President Obama's corner 100%. He is a good man and the best president he could be under the tidal wave of Republican strategy to prevent his improving our Nation's situation. He cares about the rest of us, not just his rich family and billionaire cohorts. I firmly believe that he would never have bought up companies, and then destroyed them to earn himself huge sums of money, money that would be redundant to his own life. I am glad that Obama is able to raise the money necessary to tell the truth to the American people in this campaign. Remember, we are fighting against the likes of the Koch brothers, who do not give a darn about anyone else.

Hi Susanna, Authorities are always vague when releasing the President's movements for security reasons. These are the same closure details all other media outlets have been provided. Brenton
