PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- The surviving members of the rock band the Grateful Dead have announced plans to perform a benefit concert for U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the group will reunite and perform Oct. 13 at the Bryce Jordan Center at the Penn State campus in State College, Pa.

The date marks the first time in four years that Dead alumni Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Micky Hart will have performed together on-stage.

Also to play at the gig supporting the Democratic nominee for president is the Allman Brothers Band, the Inquirer said.
