TAMPA — Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign denied a TMZ report that the soon-to-be GOP nominee paid $500,000 to bring the band Journey to Tampa to perform at the Republican National Convention.
Asked whether the report is true, a Romney spokesperson said, “no.”
Journey is set to perform in Tampa on Thursday night at an event space near the Tampa Bay Times Forum, but the concert is not sponsored by Romney.
“Liberty Plaza, benefiting Citizens Helping Heroes, hired Journey to play outside the RNC convention at a private venue,” said Ron Bonjean, a spokesman for the RNC convention event space.
