Bill and Hillary Clinton Went to Oktoberfest and Bill Went All Out in Lederhosen
Oktoberfest may be over for this year, but even if you didn’t make it to Germany for the festivities you can still celebrate thanks to a few ridiculously joyous photos of attendees, including Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Yes, the former president and former secretary of state were on hand in Munich last week to drink a few pints and spend time with fellow revelers at the world’s largest beer festival. And, to the delight of everyone, Bill went full out for the event, rocking his best traditional lederhosen complete with shorts, vest, and knee-high socks. Hillary didn’t wear a matching set, but she did wear a pretty awesome pantsuit with a festive orange jacket.
According to the Daily Mail, the couple seemed to be to be in high spirits when they arrived, with Bill lovingly draping his arm around Hillary’s shoulders. The pair even smiled, waved, and hugged a few fans as they walked through the event.
Now, the couple has to get back to America to get their literal show on the road. According to the Associated Press, Hillary and Bill announced on Monday that they will be going on a mini-tour as part of their show, "An Evening with President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton."
The show, which is being produced by tour promoter Live Nation, will see the pair hold joint conversations and share "stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future.”
The tour begins on Nov. 18 with their first show at the Las Vegas Park Theater, which can hold up to 5,200 people (and is also home to both Cher and Lady Gaga’s residencies). Next, the Clintons will visit Toronto's Scotiabank Arena on Nov. 27, followed by Montreal's Bell Centre on Nov. 28 and finally ending at the Smart Financial Center in Sugar Land, Texas, on Dec. 4.
"Attendees will have the opportunity to hear one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history,” Live Nation said in a statement. “From the American presidency to the halls of the Senate and State Department, to one of the United States' most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections, they provide a unique perspective on the past, and remarkable insight into where we go from here.”
If you want to grab tickets to the show you better act fast when they go on sale at Friday at 10 a.m.
