Avenue of the Stars was shut down between Santa Monica and Pico Boulevards from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

The president arrived at 1:15 p.m. Sunday and attended three campaign fundraisers, including an expensive meal at a Wolfgang Puck restaurant.

The president wrapped up his evening at the Nokia Theatre Downtown for the “30 Days to Victory” concert and rally.

The event, where 6,000 supporters paid $44 or more for a seat, featured performances by Jon Bon Jovi, Jennifer Hudson, Stevie Wonder, Katy Perry and Earth Wind & Fire.

“I come here because I believe in what President Obama is talking about, what he feels,” Stevie Wonder said.

This weekend’s visit marked the president’s 12th trip to Los Angeles since taking office.
