‘Glen Beck Live’ Coming April 2011
“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”
Winston Churchill said that.
While his legendary quote applies to many, it seems tailored made to describe political commentator Glenn Beck.
To his proponents, Beck is a good American who champions truth, morality, and self reliance. He’s a bastion of common sense and a fierce warrior against progressives and their destructive ideas.
To his detractors, Beck is a fear mongering huckster who trades in hate and rhetoric.
Of course many of his detractors haven’t watched his highly rated FOX News Channel program, or listened to his nationally syndicated talk-radio show (Beck is the third most listened to radio personality in America) or read any of his six New York Times-best selling books.
And they most certainly haven’t purchased Glenn Beck tickets and seen the commentator live.
Twice year, Beck visits a handful of American cities to perform his one-man stage show. His live act is a mix of inspirational speaking, politically commentary, and stand-up comedy.
As a performer, Beck has received rave reviews. He’s even received praise from outlets that historically contradict his cultural and political views.
Beck’s first speaking tour of 2011 launches April 8 in Greensboro, North Carolina and concludes April 16 in Albany, New York. He has one show scheduled for the remainder of 2010—Dec. 2 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Beck also has a live show with fellow FOX News host, and another good American, Bill O’Reilly. The Bold and Fresh Tour 2010 visits Uncasville, Connecticut on Oct. 30; New Orleans, Louisiana on Dec. 3; and Dallas, Texas on Dec. 4.
During their two-hour live event, each host speaks for 30 to 40 minutes. Following an intermission, Beck and O’Reilly take the stage together for another 30 minutes of insightful commentary and witty debate.
Make sure you get your tickets as soon as possible—Beck knows how to pack them in. In August, Beck held his Restoring Honor Rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. The event drew about half a million people.
