Bill and Hillary’s “An Evening With The Clintons” will reopen Thursday at the Beacon Theatre in New York, and there’s still plenty of seats available at the standard admission price of $99.
A front row seat is selling for $431.45, plus fees.
Thursday’s comeback show follows several months off the campaign trail for the duo, who were stealing the spotlight from Democrats during the 2018 midterms before taking a sabbatical from their road show in December.
Former President George H.W. Bush’s death in December served as the perfect excuse to take time off as the tour struggled to fill seats, despite some tickets going for a mere $7 on StubHub, Fox News reports.
According to the tour’s website, Thursday promises to be a magical evening Clinton fans will never forget.
“Experience a one-of-a-kind conversation with two individuals who have helped shape our world and had a front seat to some of the most important moments in modern history,” reads the description for the live event. “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 Clinton’s “unique perspective on the past” is something she’s worked to capitalize on in the wake of her humiliating defeat to Donald Trump in 2016, first with a book titled “What Happened” to offer excuses for her loss.
The tour will extend that conversation indefinitely at a time when Democrats vying for the presidential nomination in 2020 are attempting to court voters Hillary Clinton alienated in 2016.
The Clintons will follow up the April 11 talk in New York with stops in Detroit on Friday and Philadelphia on Saturday.
Next week, Bill and I will be in New York on the 11th with @PaulBegala (expect 2020 talk), Detroit on the 12th with @RedHourBen (expect belly laughs), and Philadelphia on the 13th with Nnamdi Asomugha (expect football & Broadway chatter). Looking forward! https://t.co/jGd6elyrnt pic.twitter.com/ESoZp2jrpN

For the Detroit show, moderated by comedian Ben Stiller, there’s still a lot of tickets for sale for $49.50, though some in the front row are going for more than $400.
Some Motor City tickets are being resold for as little as $18.05, according to StubHub, or about one-third of face value.
The rebooted tour follows conflicting reports last month about whether Hillary Clinton is planning a third run for president in 2020, a rumor she seemed to quash during an interview in on March 4, only to reverse course the next day, The American Mirror reports.
Clinton told News 12 “I’m not running, but I’m going to keep working and speaking and standing for what I believe,” and New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman clarified Clinton’s remarks on Twitter March 5.
“Spoke to someone close with Clinton in contact with her today. They say she wasn’t trying to be emphatic and close the door on running when she spoke to a local reporter yesterday, and that she was surprised how definitively it played,” Haberman wrote.
“The person also says she is extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t,” she continued. “She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report.”
That report found zero evidence of alleged collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russians that meddled in the 2016 election – one of Clinton’s favorite scapegoats for losing the race.
