Jeez, you’d think James Comey was a rock star.
The former FBI director is about to hit the road to promote his memoir, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” and most of the dates have been sold out for weeks, with ticket resellers charging big bucks for seats.
Comey, who was dismissed by President Trump last year, will be at the Back Bay Events Center April 29, but because it’s sold out, you’ll have to pony up as much as $460 to resellers like Vivid Seats if you want to get in the door. The story’s the same at most stops on Comey’s 10-city book tour, including New York, Seattle, and San Francisco.
The Hill reported the other day that tickets to a live-taping radio interview with the former FBI director in New York are fetching as much as $850, making clear there’s great interest in what Comey has to say about his experience with the FBI and the Trump White House.
Meanwhile, though Comey’s closely-guarded book won’t be released until April 17 by Flatiron Books, it’s been an Amazon bestseller for several weeks.
