Thousands of bands dream about supporting their idols. The National, a veteran band already admired all over the world, aim a little bit higher. Matt Berninger and the brothers Desner and Devendorf have just announced a special date in their tour schedule. On 1st September, they'll be warming up for none other than the President of the United States, Barack Obama. The National already played for him during his 2008 campaign in Madison, Wisconsin. This Saturday they'll do the same thing in Des Moines, Iowa, to support Obama's re-election campaign.
