According to Glenn Beck, Glenn Beck is "America's premiere storyteller."Glenn Beck didn't say whether that meant his stories are true or not.The right-wing radio/internet host is bringing the "stage spectacle" titled "Glenn Beck's Man In the Moon" to the USANA Amphitheatre on July 6.For a mere $1,250 per person (that's not a typo), you can get the Gold VIP ticket package. That includes admission to a rehearsal - yes, a rehearsal - two days before the event.On the day of the show, you'll get breakfast; admission to a meet-and-greet with Beck; a barbecue dinner where you can "get to know your fellow VIPs; "awesome" parking; the best seats in the house; a laminated badge "to show everyone your VIP status; and a poster "beautifully designed and signed by Glenn Beck himself."Whoa!The most startling item on the list is admission to a Friday "Glenn unplugged" event described as "an intimate session in which Glenn will talk about things he would never talk about on air."Wait - there are things Beck holds back from his no-holds-barred radio show? Really?
