Avid Barack Obama supporter Jay-Z has scheduled two free shows this weekend in an effort to encourage voter registration before Monday’s deadline in Michigan and Florida.


       The first show takes place on Saturday at the Cobo Arena in Detroit, according to Detroit’s WWJ TV. Anyone who’s at least 18-years-old can pick up one free ticket at Obama campaign offices throughout southeast Michigan to attend the Detroit show and an accompanying rally.


       The rapper will travel to Miami on Sunday for a free show at Bayfront Park, reports the Miami Herald. Florida is likely to be a crucial state for both Obama and Republican Senator John McCain. The Obama campaign estimated that it has registered 135,000 voters in the state to date.
