Michelle Obama Becoming Vancouver
Michelle Obama’s speaking tour “Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama,” arrives in Vancouver in March 2019.

Verified Fan presale ticket registration is ongoing between now and Wednesday morning HERE. Registered fans who receive a code will have access to purchase tickets for the North American events before the general public on Friday, Dec. 14, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Tickets for the general public go on sale beginning Saturday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. at BecomingMichelleObama.com. A limited number of VIP meet and greet packages with the former First Lady will also be available.

Each stop will feature to-be-announced moderators who will appear in conversation with the former First Lady.

“I couldn’t be more excited to visit even more cities across the country and around the world,” Obama said in a news release. “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.”

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.

The former First Lady released her book Becoming on Nov. 13 and it’s sold three million copies in Canada and the U.S. since. The book is also a number one bestseller in 11 other countries around the world.

Live Nation’s press release continues:

“Attendees at Mrs. Obama’s events will hear her honest reflections on the experiences and events, both public and private, that have shaped her, from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her years spent at the most famous address in the world. Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era.”
