Ever since the Clintons launched their "Evening With a Clinton" tour, things have hit the fan. They were struggling to get people to their shows so they were selling tickets for as low as $6.55 before the show began. Their new marketing plow – more like last ditch effort – at getting people to attend their event is by selling tickets on Groupon. Tickets on the Clintons' website go between $89 and $399. But, if you're looking for a real steal, Groupon has them for $35.
The 13-city tour is currently on hold for the holidays. It will reconvene in New York in mid-April before heading off to other large cities throughout the United States.
From The Daily Mail:
For their May 19 show at The Forum in Inglewood, California, – which seats more than 17,000 – tickets usually priced at $77 are now going for $35, with $120 tickets discounted to $50, and $175 seats down to $72.
Despite the site telling customers that 'tickets are selling fast!' with 'limited time remaining,' it appears that less than 450 discounted tickets have actually been sold
The Clintons reportedly sold 3,300 tickets in Toronto, despite the venue being able to accommodate 19,000.
LiveNation, the promoter of the tour, has described the event as a "'one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history."
