'Rock the Barack' at the Legends Ball

There will be thousands of events to attend on Jan. 20, when President-Elect Barack Obama becomes the first African-American president to be sworn into office.

The cost of most of these events will more than likely be expensive, costing thousands of dollars for a historic night of celebration.

Other acts include Rodney Atkins, George Clinton, Chaka Khan, The Temptations (Dennis Edwards), Harold Melvin's Blue Notes, and the H.B. Barnum Orchestra. The dress code is formal: tuxedos, ball gowns and "all of your finery."

That same night, there will be an "Urban Ball" hosted by Ludacris.
