ANY WAY YOU WANT IT … is exactly what the band Journey told Mitt Romney when he offered them half-a-million dollars to play a gig for him at campaign event and they accepted, our sources has learned.

Sources tell our sources … the shin-dig is set to go down at a private fundraising party in Tampa, FL on Thursday night while the Republican National Convention is in town. We”re told Mitt”s campaign threw down a whopping $500,000 to secure the 90-minute set.

Sources tell us … Journey is NOT making a political statement by accepting the offer and made it clear — it”s just another gig.

Recently divorced Michaele Salahi will also be there (with an invite, no less) to cheer on her rocker boyfriend, Neal Schon.
