The disastrous "An Evening With The Clintons" tour is coming mercifully to its end, and if you want to be there for the final moments, it won't cost you much. Ticket prices have been slashed, slashed, and slashed again.
The tour is wrapping up over the weekend, and Sunday night's final show at the MGM isn't even sold out yet. Tickets for the weekend's shows were going for prices so low you would probably pay more for an uber to the venue or the parking outside than the entry fee to hear Bill and Hillary talk.
The New York Post reported on sales for Friday's Seattle event, with secondary market prices (that's places like StubHub) as low as $20 a ticket.
Tonight's in Vegas had secondary market prices at about $20 bucks, but even buying from Ticketmaster doesn't have to put you over $50. A far cry from the money machine price tags when they started out, with prices up around two grand.
This isn't a late-breaking development. Prices began to drop off a cliff at the end of last year. The tour took a break for the winter, but coming back didn't rescue flagging sales.
Last week in D.C., they threw in a video of Hillary Clinton reading from the Mueller report, but over most of the tour they haven't talked much Trump--perhaps a contributing factor in the lack of interest. In Seattle on Friday, Hillary opened the show by saying America is in a "constitutional crisis."
"We are in a crisis of confidence and a crisis over the rule of law and the institutions that have weathered a lot of problems over so many years," she said, saying that right now we're in a "test" for our country.
"These people," said Bill Clinton, "they don't believe the same set of rules apply to them that apply to everyone else."
If ticket prices were based on lack of self-awareness, the cost to witness this spectacle would be astronomical.
