Gore Lecture Moved to Mini-Dome

This is good news. Al Gore is going to speak Thursday at ETSU.

If you thought you missed your chance to get tickets you are in luck. Here is the scoop from the Johnson City Press:

Additional tickets to see Al Gore speak in East Tennessee State University’s Memorial Center Thursday night will become available Wednesday, the school said.

Gore, the 45th vice president of the United States, will deliver “Health Threats and the Climate Crisis” at 7 p.m. Thursday as part of the College of Public Health’s Leading Voices in Public Health Lecture Series.

Originally, Gore was scheduled to speak in the D.P. Culp University Center’s Martha Street Culp Auditorium. The university had provided for about 800 free tickets to the auditorium and about 900 more for additional broadcast sites on campus. All those tickets were gone within one hour of becoming available this past week.

By moving the venue to Memorial Center about 3,000 people can attend the lecture.

Extra tickets will be available for pickup Wednesday from noon until 6 p.m. at the information booth on the second floor of the Culp Center on campus. Tickets will be limited to two per person and be available to ETSU faculty, staff, students and to members of the community.

Check ETSU's website for more information.
