Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, Bill, are hitting the road in November for a series of joint speaking events that’ll stretch into 2019. 

The tour, called “An Evening with the Clintons,” will see the pair crisscross the nation in over a dozen appearances that will, according to a press release, “feature joint on stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future.”

Announced on Monday, the tour kicks on November 18 in Las Vegas, which will be the first of four appearances through the end of the year. The pair will take a few months off and then hit the road again for a string of dates in April and early May. The move is sure to fuel speculation about the power couple’s involvement in the 2020 presidential election cycle.

Some interesting notes: three of the 13 scheduled stops are in Canada and there are also stops in Pennsylvania and Michigan — two states that Clinton was criticized for ignoring during her 2016 presidential campaign.

Like Michelle Obama’s upcoming book tour, the events are all in large theaters and a few arenas. So clearly they’re anticipating big crowds. And, unsurprisingly, ticket prices will be steep no matter the city. For instance, tickets for the Boston event will range fro, $120 to $745 before fees. (It’s a Live Nation tour, after all.) 

Whether or not Bill will use the opportunity to hawk copies of his best-selling mystery novel is unknown, but either way they’ll get a little free press since Trump will almost certainly tweet some bile towards his former opponent. 

It’s like the 2016 election never ended.
