Exclusive: Glenn Beck dishes on his new 'Man in the Moon' project

Published: Sunday, Feb. 17 2013 11:45 p.m. MST

When Beck visited the American Dream Labs in Lehi last week, it was his first time experiencing the unique ambiance McPherson had conjured in an industrial-park warehouse space by combining elements both informal (arcade-style video game consoles and large sectional couches) and sophisticated (a fancy chandelier, as well as a menagerie of unpainted metal props fastened to the walls in such a way that collectively convey a “retro military” theme).

“I hire good people, and I try to surround myself with good people, to where I can have an idea but then they can take it and push it further,” Beck said. “I said to Ben, ‘We need to build a Dream Labs, and I want it to be a real creative space that reflects me and what we are.’ And this is the first time I’ve seen it. And this is his vision. … Today my father-in-law walked in here and said, ‘It’s amazing the way your mind works.’ And I said, ‘Dad, I had nothing to do with this. This is Ben.’ ”

Glenn Beck’s “Man in the Moon” will play July 6 at 7 p.m. at USANA Amphitheater. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Tuesday; prices range from $1,250 for the “Gold VIP Package” to $35 for lawn seating. For more information, visit GlennBeck.com/maninthemoon.
