2004 Vote For Change Tour
The Vote for Change tour came out of an informal conversation
among a handful of artists on how they could make a difference in the 2004 elections and beyond. This idea resulted in
a first-of-its-kind endeavor where Vote for Change participating artists focused their energies on the states where the
elections were expected to be the closest.
The artist coalition included Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals,
Bonnie Raitt, Bright Eyes, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Dave Matthews Band, Death Cab for Cutie, Dixie Chicks,
Jackson Brown, James Taylor, Jurassic 5, Keb’ Mo’, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Pearl Jam, R.E.M. and
My Morning Jacket. These artists toured simultaneously in the 11 battleground states as well as the District of Columbia
over the course of 15 days with a grand finale on Oct. 11th in Washington, D.C. All Vote for Change artists donated their time and talent in support of the tour.
"As concerned mothers, women and most importantly concerned Americans, we are compelled to
do what we can to inspire other voters to get involved in this year's election. We hope our participation in the Vote For
Change Tour will be a catalyst for positive change." -- The Dixie Chicks
