Tonight is the final night of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s speaking tour, “An Evening with the Clintons,” and as much as it might be amusing to see Bill and Hillary pretend to stand each other for the duration of the event, I can’t imagine spending my hard-earned money to listen to them talk about current events, or to whine about Hillary’s defeat.
But, if you’re so inclined, their event tonight in Las Vegas is not yet sold out, and as Hot Air reported earlier today, you could get tickets for $15—though I’m now seeing tickets for as low as $10 at StubHub.
And guess what? That’s not the lowest they’ve gone for.
The Clinton’s show moved to California Saturday night and tickets went for as little as $2.00. Wow. Imagine that. Some California Democrats listened to Bill and Hillary, a former president and a former Secretary of State (and the leader of pantsuits nation) in person for a couple of bucks That makes the $15.00 tickets in Las Vegas look over-priced, doesn’t it?
I’d rather spend $2.00 on a cup of coffee than listen to them myself. Not all tickets were that low (some seats are a couple hundred bucks, and some were over thousand dollars) but sales were slow and tickets were quickly discounted—though it hasn’t exactly succeeded in boosting attendance to the levels you’d expect for an event featuring a former U.S. president and secretary of State.
Perhaps they should take it as a sign that they should just go away. The Clinton Era is long gone.
