Penguin

Former First Lady is making a huge comeback, and it is stadium status.

Michelle Obama announced today on Instagram that she will be going on a book tour and tickets started to sell like crazy.


“Truly humbled by the response to my upcoming book tour. I can’t wait to share BECOMING with all of you & hope to see you somewhere along the way!” Michelle Obama expressed.

“Becoming” is not set to be released until November 13.

Michelle posted the tour dates and stops for her upcoming show and proved that selling out stadiums for books is no big. Some might even say that Michelle is the Beyoncé of books.

Michele tour will hit cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Detroit, Denver, San Jose, and Dallas. The former first lady has two dates aligned for Brooklyn at the Barclay Center on December 1, and 19. The December 19 date was an extra date that was added because the demand is high.

JOIN ME ON MY BOOK TOUR! www.becomingmichelleobama.com #IAmBecoming I’m from the South Side of Chicago. I went to Princeton and Harvard. I’m a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I’ve been a lawyer, a nonprofit leader, a hospital executive, and First Lady of the United States. I like to call these my “stats” – the shorthand we all seem to default to whenever we tell our stories. Where are you from? What do you do? What school did you go to? As I’ve written my memoir, BECOMING, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about my story, mining it for the kinds of details I’d usually just brush off or even forget about—the narrow taillights of my father’s car, a talk with my mother on a drive home, the heat of my daughter’s forehead when she ran a fever. And in doing so, I’ve realized that those surface-level “stats” don’t really tell my story at all. This fall, I’d like to share that fuller story with all of you on my book tour. It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes and worries. It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it—blemishes and all. Go to BecomingMichelleObama.com to find out where I’ll be and how to get tickets. #IAmBecoming I hope to see you somewhere along the way!

The show will feature Michelle Obama having an intimate conversation with the audience. The former first lady also expressed on a video on Instagram that the purpose of the tour is to share her full story.

“It’s the story of my humdrum plainness, my tiny victories, my lasting bruises, my ordinary hopes, and worries. It’s the story of who I am, truly, and I’m proud of it—blemishes and all.”

Michelle wants the audience to look beyond what is on her “stats” and her resume because there is more to her. She wants to share the story of how she became her “stats” i.e. the First Lady, Executive of a hospital.
