FAIRBANKS — Conservative radio host and firebrand Glenn Beck will return to Alaska in September as part of his “Unelectable II” tour.
Beck, who made a name for himself on Fox News before his show was canceled, will host two events in Alaska in September, one in Fairbanks and one in Anchorage.
The man who was instrumental in the founding of the national Tea Party movement is scheduled to perform Sept. 7 at the Carlson Center.
Beck’s website describes the show as a comedy program that touches on a broad set of political topics in the months before the fall’s election.
“If politicians said the kinds of things that Glenn does — you know, the truth — they’d never get into office. That’s why Glenn Beck is unelectable — he can’t help but tell it like it is. No one is spared Glenn’s wrath … Democrats, Republicans, law makers and law breakers,” the website states.
The last time a visit from Beck made Alaska headlines was in 2010, when he held a Sept. 11 remembrance event with former Gov. Sarah Palin in Anchorage. Some had expected a campaign announcement by one or the other, but no such announcement was made.
The tickets for his upcoming event will go on sale Friday on ticketmaster.com at 10 a.m. and range from $46 to $91.
