Tickets for the show are going for $20.

Hinckley’s assassination attempt on President Reagan took place on March 31, 1981.

Despite seriously injuring the president as well as three others, Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity.

Hinckley was released from institutional psychiatric care in September of 2016.
