Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck are appearing together in Anchorage, Alaska Saturday to mark the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and tickets don't come cheap: The Ticketmaster page for the event lists regular adult tickets at between $73 and $130 and tickets plus a "meet & greet" at $225.

The event will also have a "dry section" where no alcohol is served and a "wet section" for those who want to drink.

Palin heralded the event on her Facebook page last night with a message beginning, "Glenn's coming to the Last Frontier!"

"I hope my fellow Alaskans (and anyone visiting from Outside) will join me this Saturday, September 11, 2010, at Anchorage's Dena'ina Center at 8:00 p.m. Glenn Beck will be there - you won't want to miss it," she wrote.

Added Palin: "We can count on Glenn to make the night interesting and inspiring, and I can think of no better way to commemorate 9/11 than to gather with patriots who will 'never forget.' Hope to see you there!"

Palin appeared with Beck at Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally late last month at which she said, "We must restore America and restore her honor!"

President Obama will be appearing at the Pentagon Memorial in Arlington on Sept. 11th, where he will deliver remarks and take part in a wreath-laying ceremony. Michelle Obama and Laura Bush plan to honor victims of the attacks in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, while Vice President Joe Biden will attend services Saturday at Ground Zero.

UPDATE: A spokesperson for Beck says he will donate his fee from the event to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
