Get ready! Washington power couple, Bill and Hillary Clinton, announced Monday that they’re embarking on a nationwide “stadium tour,” bringing their stage show to 13 cities this fall.
“An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” will feature the pair sharing “stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future,” a publicity statement read.
The tour, sponsored by Live Nation (which is also hosting a stadium tour for former First Lady Michelle Obama), begins in Las Vegas on Sunday, November 18 — after the midterm elections — and criss-crosses the country, ending in Los Angeles next April.
Tickets go on sale Friday, October 12, but they aren’t cheap. If you want to see the Clintons’ ‘joint speaking tour” at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, for example, the cheapest seats will run you just a little over $70 each. Where the pair are more in demand, like Boston, seats start at $120 and can cost as much as $745.50
The tour, oddly enough, will not make stops in Wisconsin, an interesting oversight given Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign plan also missed the state. Hillary will, however, finally visit Pennsylvania and Michigan.
All kidding aside, a joint tour fearing both Clintons is not without significant risk. Hillary Clinton hasn’t been much in demand since losing the 2016 presidential election. Aside from a brief book tour, Clinton has restricted herself to private events only and won’t appear on stage for any Democratic candidate headed into a midterm contest (she has, however, committed to several high-dollar fundraisers). And in light of #MeToo, Bill Clinton doesn’t seem to be viewed as favorably by dedicated leftists as he once was.
Live Nation did not release any details about the tour contracts, but both Clintons previously commanded six-figure paydays per personal appearance.
