Bill O’Reilly may have been fired this week from his show on the Fox News Channel, but he’s still coming to Baltimore.
O’Reilly announced earlier this month that he was scheduled to visit Baltimore on Sept. 22 along with Fox commentator Jesse Watters and comedian Dennis Miller, as part of a national tour dubbed “The Spin Stops Here” for fans of his former “O’Reilly Factor” show.
“In the fall, we’ll see everybody at the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore,” O’Reilly said during one of his Tip of the Day segments earlier this month.
This week, Fox announced that it was parting company with O’Reilly, following a New York Times investigation of sexual harassment claims against him and subsequent loss of advertising on the program. O’Reilly has denied any wrongdoing.
“The Spin Stops Here” tour is still on the Baltimore arena’s schedule, with tickets starting at $65. Other stops on the tour include Westbury, N.Y., Tampa, Las Vegas and Anaheim, Calif.
O’Reilly said on air two weeks before he was fired that he enjoys touring. “I’d really like to do more ‘Spin Stops Here’ live shows around the country, but I can’t,” he said. “I’m just too busy.”
