Former U.S. President Donald Trump’s “American Freedom Tour,” a rally for "conservatives to get motivated and defend freedom," is making a stop in Austin this May.

Only two of six stops are planned so far, one in Birmingham, Alabama on June 18, and the other here in an undetermined venue in Austin on May 14.

Along with a headline speech from Trump, speakers include:

  • Former Executive Vice President for his father’s administration, Donald Trump Jr.
  • Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
  • Former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle
  • Political commentator Dinesh D'Souza
  • Chandler, Arizona-based Sheriff Mark Lamb

Tickets start at $15 for a virtual option ranging all the way to the $2,995 “Presidential” tickets, plus “Patriot” tickets that are so limited, you have to call for the price.

Trump last visited Austin in 2019 to tour Apple facilities.
