Tickets for the April 23 campaign event start at $1,000, according to an invitation, with supporters offering $20,000 or more being listed as co-hosts.

In addition to the TV, Broadway and music stars, tennis great Billie Jean King is also booked as a "special guest."

"In light of the situation with COVID-19, please join Vice President Joe Biden for this virtual event," says the invite, which calls it a "fabulous evening" with the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The celeb-filled fundraiser is one of several digital events the former vice president's campaign has announced amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has kept millions of Americans at home.

Sources told The Hill earlier this week that Biden's campaign is planning to host a "virtual fireside chat" next week, as well as two other online fundraisers this month.
