The Democratic nominee’s campaign announced Tuesday the launch of the “Love Trumps Hate” performance series with the intention of getting out the vote in key battleground states.

The artists featured will “energize our supporters and encourage them to turn out to vote on Election Day or to take advantage of early voting options in their states,” the campaign said in a statement.

More entertainers will be announced in the coming days, according to the campaign.

Bon Jovi is poised to perform in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 and in Tampa on Nov. 5, while Lopez will take the stage on Oct. 29 in Miami. Perry is poised to perform on Nov. 5, just three days before the election, in Philadelphia.

Perry has been an outspoken supporter of Clinton, performing at the Democratic National Convention in July and on the campaign trail, as well taking over the candidate’s Instagram account ahead of a rally last year. Lopez attended a Clinton fundraiser in June, and Bon Jovi was one of several performers at another in August.

The Clinton campaign said in a statement announcing the concerts: “The choice in this election is clear.
