After a highly successful 2018 12-event arena tour across 10 cities, Live Nation and Crown Publishing, a part of Penguin Random House, are pleased to announce that additional dates and cities have been added to Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama.
The 2019 events will kick off on February 8 in Tacoma, WA, and will make stops in previously unvisited cities, including Austin, Toronto, Atlanta, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and more.
In keeping with her commitment to make her events accessible to as many people as possible, Mrs. Obama and Live Nation will donate a portion of ticket inventory in each market to various organizations, including, but not limited to, charities, schools, and community groups in each city the tour visits. Those fans will receive free admission to the tour stop in their city.
Tickets for the newly announced North American 2019 dates will go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, December 15, at 10 a.m. local time at. A limited number of VIP meet and greet packages with the former First Lady will also be available.
Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States – the first African-American to serve in that role – she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world.
I couldn’t be more excited to visit even more cities across the country and around the world.”
“I’ve been so humbled by the response to the tour thus far and the overwhelming interest we’ve received from so many communities we weren’t able to visit this year. That’s why I’m thrilled that we’re able to expand our conversations to these new settings and wider audiences. I can’t wait to continue the discussions that have been so meaningful for me and, I hope, for so many others,” Mrs. Obama said.
