Hillary Clinton, with Bill in tow, will continue her ascent from a self-imposed withdrawal from public life following the 2016 presidential election, with a November speaking engagement at the new Pavilion at Irving Music Factory.

Tickets for “An Evening with President Bill Clinton and the Honorable Hillary Rodham Clinton” go on sale at 10 a.m. on Aug. 18 and will start at $99.50, plus a fee, according to a LiveNation spokeswoman.

The Irving appearance, scheduled for November 17, is being touted as something a little more personal than a stump speech, though. A Q&A session will follow the talk from the 42nd President of the United States and the former Secretary of State.

The Irving Music Factory is a 250,000-square-foot entertainment complex that is scheduled to open in phases, the first being Labor Day Weekend, with two sold-out comedy shows from Dave Chappelle.

Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd of more than 2,000 in Houston in April, the day after President Donald Trump, who beat her in the race for the presidency, ordered the launch of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles at a military airfield in Syria.

The Pavilion will be booked, managed and operated by LiveNation, the world’s largest concert promoter. Twenty-five entertainment and dining attractions will move in shortly after the Pavilion opens.

Anatomy of a presidential concession speech

As we inch closer to election day, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are starting to consider their election night speeches. In the American tradition, one candidate will likely give a concession speech. Whoever it is, here are a few pointers on how to accept defeat with grace.
