(Update 4 pm ET: A Clinton spokesman confirms to CNN the event has now been canceled. Full story)
(CNN) - Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton are set to appear at Radio City Music Hall in February - though if history is any guide, the matchup is likely to produce few fireworks.
The famous New York City venue announced Wednesday the two former presidents will share the same stage February 25, nine months after the ex-presidents shared a similar stage in Toronto, Canada.
A ticket to what Radio City is calling "the hottest political ticket in history" will cost anywhere form $60 to $1,250. Though $1,250 may seem on steep side for the 90 minute event, a VIP ticket includes a pre-show reception with the two former presidents along with the evening's yet-to-be-announced moderator. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will also be served and each guest will have a chance to pose with the former commanders-in-chief.
The two were largely chummy during the last joint appearance at the Toronto event in May. At one point, former President Bush joked that his mother, Barbara Bush, told him Clinton "was like a son to her" because of all the time he was spending with Bush's father.
"So brother, it's good to see you," Bush said then.
During that event, at which tickets cost an eye-popping $2,500, Clinton also showered praise on the former president on a host of issues.
"What he did on the AIDS drugs and the diversity in the cabinet … he deserves a lot of credit," he said.
The New York event is likely to be a lucrative one for both former presidents - each usually charge well over $100,000 in appearance fees. But Radio City isn't officially disclosing how much the former president's are being compensated.
Matt McKenna, a spokesman for former President Clinton, made clear the New York event will not be a heated debate.
"Just a moderated conversation...no fireworks," he said.

I'm going to be there cheering on President Bush. Looking forward to seeing hm.
They will probably punch each other in the throat and then run screaming out of the room. Then Palin will walk in and beat them down with a rolling pin.
What's the show called? How about "It Is Never Too Late Too Come Back To the Trough Again, And Again, and Again ...". Are the Rockettes going to perform?
Good Mr. Clinton.Evil Mr.Bush.What are these two doing together?
... which demonstrates to both parties that civilized people can get along: you can disagree without being disagreeable. Any of the current leaders in Congress taking notes?
Heartwarming to see how political adversity can be set aside...typical politicians. They would like us to blieve that while they are milking the cow and stealing the milk, that they are doing it all for us and not themselves.
I like this,... even though i'm no fan of Bush,... he's a civilian now, and he can start by doing some repair to his image. Given the divide in the country, and the seeming percolating hatred of each other by left and the right, all of the former Presidents, should make it their duty to speak out,.. one nation, one people, disagree on political issues, but respect each other, and they should start by condemning the hatred being sown by talk show personalities and media mouth pieces, on both sides. If the ex Presidents, speaking as one voice, called out people like, Limbaugh, Coulter, Hannity, and Beck, and took away some of their powder, it might just start the healing process.
President Clinton’s civility is admirable. Should be an interesting event.
I wouldn't pay two cents to listen to George Bush fumble his way through a speech. The man should be in jail, not earning $100,000 for an evening.
Unless the Rockettes are also performing, I won't go.
Ah...Bill...I'll pose with him. George must have a curious smirk for me to go near him.
This is a picture of two presidents! Looking at it makes me proud to be an American. A picture of Obama on the other hand makes cry knowing that his goals are to undo all of the great things this country stands for and to slap in the face all of the proud Americans who have given their lives for our freedom. If Americas want an afro-american to look up to and emulate, look to Bill Cosby, a geat American and teacher, not this sham of a president we have.
I sure hope they have an army of security for President Bush, New York is filled with liberal Democrats.
Brothers by a different mother.
Hmmmm Lets See Now.
Abbot and Costello
Laurel and Hardy
Morecambe and Wise
Martin and Louis
Rowen and Martin
All great comedy duos have one thing in common. One is the smart one and the other is the dumb one. So how would you rate this comedy act?.........George has to be the dumb one with Clinton being the feed. About time we had another good laugh. Can't wait to see George do another prat fall, pie in the face type gag. Perhaps he will attempt tp spell one of the 115 words in his vocabulary?
"HEY George! You just totally destroyed the Republican Party!"
It's going to be a great night with the Sarah Palin explaining the theory of evolution and trying to explain away all those unfortunate pesky fossils. Wink Wink That will be so funny it will get a standing ovation.
Gotta be televised..HBO Maybe a tour of Afghanistan or Iran. Send them to North Korea and take Glen Beck with you
We miss W! That was a president with courage. Now we have the liar in chief. The campaigner-in-chief, and the teleprompter-in-chief.
Less govt. now.
Now that is worth the $$$
Clinton = Smartest and Best President Ever!
G W Bush = Dumbest and Worst President Ever!
That's nice, a good example of how two political rivals can be civil and polite! IF only the hateful-Tea-Baggers would take a lesson from these two men!
Once you have been president, you know first hand what a huge burden it is.
As much as I disagreed with Bush II, I do not hate him, he was misguided and wrong, but I would still greet him and treat him with respect.
Oh boy; a new song and dance show!
Two presidents speaking at the same Venue, should be informative and entertaining. One who they say lied to protect the country and one who did lie to save his butt. I'll go with the guy who protected me and my country.
You two need to take the White House back. Kick the gardener out.
so this is a money raiser?
well....................I guess if anyone still has any ..........they might go.
What will all the collected $ go to?
I hope it is a worthy cause........not just in the back pocket.
This is great to see. After all, we're all Americans. That's first and foremost!
Not worth the money.
