It sounds like the January 22 Al Gore speech at Boise State University may be heading to a bigger venue to accommodate the demand. More as I get confirmation ...
Update 8:50 a.m. ... The event has been moved to Taco Bell Arena. More later.
Update 12:15 p.m. Here's the scoop from Boise State ...
The Frank Church Institute announced today that due to the high demand for tickets, former Vice President Al Gore’s keynote speech, “Global Warming: Beyond the Inconvenient Truth,” has been moved to the Taco Bell Arena at Boise State University. Gore is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. Jan. 22.
All tickets distributed on Jan. 3 will be honored, and those who purchased reserved tickets will be seated in a special section on the floor. In addition, 1,000 free tickets have been set aside for Boise State students.
Additional general admission tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9, at the Taco Bell Arena Box Office, at (208) 426-1766, at all Select-a-Seat locations, and online at www.idahotickets.com. Tickets are $5, including all service fees. Students can pick up their free tickets (limit of two free tickets per student) with student identification at the Taco Bell Arena Box Office and at the Student Union Info Desk.
The remaining sessions of the daylong global warming conference, scheduled from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., will remain in the Student Union Jordan Ballroom and are free and open to the public. No tickets are required to attend these sessions.
Update 1:45 p.m.: My Daily Kos diary on the venue switch made the recommended list and generated some great comments including this one from a New Yorker: How things change ... a few years ago if you heard that Idaho was going to put Gore into an arena, you could bet it was because they were going to let the lions loose on him.
