india Updated: Jan 21, 2009 08:23 IST

US President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration on January 20 is expected to cost a whopping $150 million, making it the most expensive in the American history. Obama's inauguration expenses are likely to be to the tune of over $150 million, overshadowing the $42.3 million spent on George Bush's inauguration in 2005 and $33 million on Bill Clinton's in 1993. Beyonce Knowles, Jon Bon Jovi, U2's Bono, Shakira, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen will perform at a free-for-public concert at the iconic Lincoln Memorial in Washington on Sunday, which will be attended by the President-elect himself, who has reached here after a train ride from Philadelphia.
