On Monday, Bill and Hillary Clinton made an announcement. They are going on tour across 13 U.S. cities to close out 2018 and extend it through 2019.
The tours will consist of conversation-like series titled, “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton,” NBC News reported.
Ticket sales begin Friday morning at 10 a.m. Ticket prices are expected to be around $700 for the best seats and as low as $70 for cheaper seats.
The tours will be conducted by Live Nation, the same company that promoted Michelle Obama’s new memoir, “Becoming.” Live Nation also launched tours for several music legends.

According to Live Nation, the Clintons’ shows will include “stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future.”
The first tour will take place on Nov. 18 at Park Theater in Las Vegas. The second event is scheduled for Nov. 27 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. Other events will be held Nov. 28 at Montreal’s Bell Centre, and close out the year on Dec. 4 at the Smart Financial Center in Texas.
The 2019 tour dates for the Clintons will be Apr. 11 at Beacon Theatre in New York and May 4 at the Forum in Inglewood, California. Tour stops at Detroit’s Fox Theater, The Met in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. at the DAR Constitution Hall, and Boston’s Opera House are also scheduled.
Live Nation said, “Attendees will have the opportunity to hear one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history. From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department, to one of the United States’ most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”
The Clintons’ tour intends to deliver Democrat supporters with a noteworthy platform just following the significant 2018 midterm elections to speculate who will be running against President Trump in 2020.
