Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden will visit Missoula during his “American Promise” tour Monday, Dec. 3.

The event will be held in the Dennison Theatre at the University of Montana. Doors for the event open at 7 p.m., with Biden’s presentation at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. today and cost range from $60 to $110. To purchase tickets, go to the UM Adams Center Box Office, call 406-243-4051 or visit https://www.umt.edu/griztix/. All tickets include a paperback copy of Biden’s No. 1 New York Times best-seller “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose.”

Biden represented Delaware for 36 years in the U.S. Senate before serving as the 47th vice president from 2009 to 2017. As vice president, Biden addressed key issues facing the nation and represented America abroad, traveling over 1.2 million miles to more than 50 countries. He convened sessions of the President’s Cabinet, led interagency efforts and worked with Congress in his fight to raise the living standards of middle-class Americans, reduce gun violence, address violence against women and end cancer as we know it.

Since leaving the White House, Biden has continued his legacy of expanding opportunities for all with the creation of the Biden Foundation, the Biden Cancer Initiative, the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Biden Domestic Policy Institute at the University of Delaware. He also is the author of “Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics.”

“Promise Me, Dad” is an intimate memoir from Biden that reveals the most momentous year among the more than 45 he has spent in public life.

“Not just a recounting from a politician, the memoir is a personal story from a father, grandfather, husband and friend as he confronts the inevitability of devastating personal loss, while trying to balance his duty to his family and his country,” a UM press release said.
