Hillary Rodham Clinton will join her spouse and former President Bill Clinton in kicking off a 13-city North American speaking tour in Las Vegas on November 18.

Live Nation Entertainment describes the events as “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 toward the future.”

U.S. cities on the tour include Las Vegas; Sugar Land, Texas; New York City; Detroit; Philadelphia; Wallingford, Connecticut; Washington, D.C.; Boston; Seattle; and Los Angeles.

The kickoff in Las Vegas’ Park Theater’s 5,200-seat venue on the Sunday before Thanksgiving will take place less than two weeks from what many believe will constitute the most consequential midterm elections in American history.

Live Nation Entertainment, describing itself as “the world’s leading live entertainment company,” is the same organization involved with former first lady Michelle Obama’s book tour — which also begins in November.

It also includes several of the same cities as the Clintons’ tour.

Not unlike Michelle Obama’s tour, the Clintons’ latest venture may meet with some balking from would-be eventgoers based on the ticket prices.

Complaints quickly ensued following fans’ discovery that attending Mrs. Obama’s tour would set them back a pretty penny. Tickets sold out quickly for her 10-city extravaganza, and prices ranging from $29.50 to $3,000 met with ire from disappointed fans.

Future ticket-holders for the Clintons’ upcoming tour 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,” the tour description enthuses.

“They provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”

“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 overheated description continues.

Tickets for the Clintons’ tour will be available starting this Friday, October 12, at 10 a.m., per the tour’s website.

Response on social media to the announcement, predictably, was mixed.
