Former President Bill Clinton is greeted by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Aug. 10 at the National Clean Energy Summit 2.0 at UNLV.

Former President Bill Clinton will visit Las Vegas next month to deliver a lecture at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The speech, titled "Embracing Our Common Humanity," is sponsored by Caesars Palace and concert promoter AEG Live and open to the general public. Tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m. There was no immediate word on ticket prices.

Also unclear is whether Clinton will campaign for Nevada Democrats seeking re-election. On his last trip to Las Vegas last year he held a fundraiser for Democrat Rory Reid, the Clark County Commission Chairman running for governor, and attended a U2 concert at Sam Boyd Stadium.

The promoters described the Feb. 22 lecture like this:

"President Clinton served the United States for eight years during a time of unprecedented prosperity and change. Now, President Clinton is a powerful voice for progress around the world as he shares his unique insights and observations with audiences around the world. President Clinton’s public speeches describe the challenge of globalization, emphasize our growing interdependence, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values."
