Rauner’s team announces that there will be no inaugural ball as part of the inaugural celebratory activities. Instead, there will be a concert by an as yet unnamed “famous musical act.” The tickets for the concert are $125 each. Other activities include free ticketed admission to the swearing-in ceremony at the Prairie Capital Convention Center, free admission to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, a “Celebrate Illinois” event at the Lincoln library and an open house with the governor and first lady at the Old State Capitol. An inauguration dinner and reception will also be held Sunday, Jan. 11, with tickets going for $1,000 apiece.
