Sen. Barack Obama already has Warren Buffett advising on financial matters. Now he's enrolled Jimmy Buffett presumably to help out with the party planning.

The "Margaritaville" singer is the latest music star to back the Obama campaign, announcing plans for a free get-out-the-vote concert in the battleground state of Florida.

Buffett will headline the Last Chance for Change rally at Tampa's Ford Amphitheatre on Sunday, two days before the election.

Fans can score two free tickets by visiting Obama information tables around Tampa Bay; additional info is available online at www.FL.BarackObama.com.

In recent weeks, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Jay-Z, the Dead and James Taylor have all given similar performances in key states.
