I’m off to see Sam Harris – what should I expect?

September 22, 2015

I was very excited today to have purchased tickets to see Sam Harris on his Australian tour in January. The tour is a while off yet, but I was wondering if anyone else was planning on coming to the events?

I have written extensively engaging Harris’ work in the past, particularly engaging his work, The Moral Landscape. I heard him speak at the 2012 Global Atheist Convention. Yet it will be great to hear him at an event by himself. I am really keen to hear what he has to say.

I did think tickets were a little expensive (you can spend up to $334 on a ticket!), and my C-reserve ticket was $79. But then again he is a bit of a rock star (and rock stars generally get paid top dollar). Do you think it’s reasonable to spend that much to hear a guest speaker?

So an evening with Sam Harris in January – what should I expect from the evening? What should I anticipate to get out of it?

I’m not entirely sure at this stage, but I’m really looking forward to it and I’m planning on blogging about my experiences.

  1. I’ve just booked to go to the Brisbane evening on the 22nd of January. I’ve read much of his work, and am especially excited to hear Maajid Nawaz speak as a special guest.

    I also thought the tickets were awfully expensive – I spent $299 to get close to the front and have a ‘meet & greet’ with Harris, which I’m definitely looking forward to (but am still somewhat regretting spending that much money on it).

    But yes, should be good. I look forward to reading about your experiences!

    My short comment is to say briefly that Harris is a brilliant fellow. His books always
    bring knowledge to everyone; except for those who prefer to live encapsulated by
    the spiderwebs of superstition.
