Former President Donald Trump and disgraced former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly are charging more than $7,500 for VIP tickets to their December speaking tour in Florida and Texas.

The "VIP Meet & Greet Package" includes floor seats, a 45-minute reception before the show, and photos with Trump and O'Reilly. Without all the perks, tickets are going for as low as $106. With fees, a single VIP ticket comes out to more than $8,500.

In a statement earlier this month, Trump said the so-called "History Tour" would be "fun, fun, fun for everyone who attends" and O'Reilly promised the conversations "would not be boring."

"I will be focusing on greatness for our Country, something seldom discussed in political dialogue," Trump said in the statement announcing the tour. "If we don't make our Country great again, we will soon no longer have a Country!"

In 2017, O'Reilly was forced out at Fox, where he was a veteran primetime host, after news broke that he'd reached multiple settlements with women who accused him of sexual misconduct. One settlement amounted to a stunning $32 million. The right-wing commentator has since created his own podcast, called No Spin News.

Both men have heavily promoted the tickets, including as Father's Day gifts, and O'Reilly has urged his audience to buy tickets and become paying members of his streaming show to get early access to the events.

"My tour with Bill O'Reilly is getting a lot of attention, and I'm looking forward to it. Maybe tickets would make a great Father's Day gift? In any event, I'll see you then, and much sooner!" Trump said in a Saturday statement.

O'Reilly announced that Trump has agreed to do four shows with him, but said he'd eventually like to visit 20 cities with Trump.

The tour has upset some Trump loyalists and QAnon followers, who believed the conspiracy theory that the ex-president would be reinstated in the White House in August.
