Clintons to launch Speaking Tour

Hillary Clinton is up to something

 

Hillary and Bill Clinton will launch a nationwide speaking tour after the 2018 midterms that will take them to 13 cities in the United States and Canada, according to an announcement Monday by promoter Live Nation.

Bill and Hillary Clinton will share anecdotes from their long political careers and engage the audience in conversations when the former President and Secretary of State embark on their joint speaking tour: An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The tour begins November 18th in Las Vegas and will stop at 13 cities in both the United States and Canada before concluding May 4th at Los Angeles The Forum.

Each event promises to feature joint on stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future, Live Nation said in a statement

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 unusual tour will take the Clintons mainly to friendly territory including several large Democratic-leaning cities such as Philadelphia, Seattle, Detroit and Boston, as well as Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal from mid-November 2018 to May 2019.

The event is billed as an opportunity to hear the Clintons provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here, including their views on one of the United States most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections.

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, Live Nation said in a release announcing the tour.

The entertainment company, which typically promotes concerts by big-name musicians such as Justin Timberlake and Maroon 5, is also producing Michelle Obama's upcoming book tour.

Tickets for An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will go on sale later this week; prices for a single event are listed as ranging from $59.50 to $375.

News of the tour comes as the Clintons have made appearances at several events in recent weeks, not all of them political.

Last Friday, the two celebrated Oktoberfest in Munich, where Bill Clinton was spotted wearing a pair of traditional lederhosen. Days earlier, the pair posed for photos with Christina Aguilera after the pop star performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

Hillary Clinton also recently sat down for an interview at the Atlantic Festival in Washington, where she critiqued President Trump and drew a comparison between Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The tour, which kicks off in Las Vegas, is set to run from November 2018 to May 2019. It will include several stops in the U.S. and Canada, and will cover the high-profile couple's thoughts on "one of the United States most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections," according to the event's organizer, Live Nation, which also handles speaking arrangements for former First Lady Michelle Obama and musicians like Taylor Swift and Jay-Z

The upcoming tour will wrap up in May 2019  around the time that 2020 presidential contenders are expected to start announcing their plans to run for the White House.

This summer, Michael Goodwin wrote in The New York Post noted that Hillary Clinton had started sending a flurry of emails on behalf of her super PAC, seeking to raise money and hammering President Trump.

"Hillary Clinton is up to something," Goodwin wrote. "For now, I am convinced Clinton wants to go for it. Doubters should recall the line about pols who get the presidential itch: There are only two cures election or death. Besides, the third time could be the charm."
