The Clintons announced Monday they will visit four cities in 2018 and nine in 2019 across North America in a series of conversations dubbed "An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton".

The website also offered some insight into the format of the tour, suggesting that the Clintons will have joint conversations on stage, where they will share anecdotes and stories from the past while also reflecting on the future trajectory of American politics.

Tickets to their Boston event at the city's opera house top $745.50 and tickets go for up to $750 at the Toyota Oakdale Theater in Wallingford.

Bill was in town in late June to promote his new book, The President is Missing, while Hillary was here in December 2017 to promote her own book, What Happened, about her loss to President Donald Trump in the November 2016 US election. Public ticket sales open on October 12 at 10 a.m. local time.

From Vegas, they travel to Toronto, Montreal and Sugar land Texas, where tickets to their talk at the Smart Financial Center on December 4 top a whopping $699 each.

The Clintons' first show next year will be April 11 at the almost 3,000-seat Beacon Theatre in NY, where the 2016 Tony Awards were held.

The Clintons will also visit Philadelphia's The Met, Detroit's Fox Theatre, DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

The tour, oddly enough, will not make stops in Wisconsin, an interesting oversight given Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign plan also missed the state.
