Obama, Beck coming to Chicago on same April date

Perhaps the famous marquee at the Chicago Theater should read: “When political worlds collide.”

The landmark theater will feature conservative talk show host and author Glenn Beck on April 14 — the same day that a frequent target of his criticism, President Barack Obama, is supposed to return home for a brief fundraising visit.

Tickets to “Glenn Beck Live” range from $35 to $95. Obama is coming back to his hometown to schmooze prominent Democratic fundraising bundlers who are being asked to raise $350,000 each by the end of the year in preparation for his re-election bid.

Chicago also is home to Obama’s re-election campaign headquarters.
