Tickets went on sale this morning for a June 24 joint appearance by Fox News stars Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly at the Atlantic City Hilton. And word is former President Bill Clinton and former Vice President Dick Cheyney are also headed to the casino.

Admission for the right-wing dynamic duo is $300, $175 and $85. The limited $300 passes include access to a one-hour, post-show cocktail party where fans can get up-close-and-personal with the cable TV firebrands, who are coming to AyCee on their "Bold & Fresh" tour. It is expected the pair will offer scripted remarks, then take questions from audience members.

But the two pundits are sure to be overshadowed by subsequent visits by Clinton and Cheyney. While their gigs are yet not confirmed, it's believed Clinton will hit the Hilton July 23, with Cheney coming Sept. 18. Each is expected to follow the same format as O'Reilly and Beck.

The bookings are big-time coups for the struggling gaming hall, which has been particularly hard hit by the double whammy of a sour economy and Pennsylvania slot parlors. They are also historic; Research suggests Clinton will be the first U.S. president, and Cheney the first veep, to make an official appearance at an Atlantic City casino.

For O'Reilly/Beck tickets, call (800) 736-1420 or go to www.ticketmaster.com.

Philly native Chuck Darrow has literally covered Atlantic City’s casino scene since Day One: He was there on assignment the night in November 1976 when voters approved legalized casinos.

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
