Michelle Obama to visit Bay Area for ‘Becoming’ book tour

Bay Area

Michelle Obama is going on a book tour this fall for the release of her new memoir, “Becoming.”

The former first lady announced last week she will visit 10 cities during the tour, starting off in her hometown of Chicago and making other stops across the U.S. including Boston, New York, and Dallas. 

She will be making her stop in the Bay Area on Friday, Dec. 14 at the SAP Center in San Jose. 

The tour offers “intimate and honest conversations” between Obama and moderators regarding both her public and private experiences as detailed in the book.

“I hope that because of this book, others will feel the power of their own voice and their own story,” Obama said Wednesday in a Facebook video announcing the tour. 

You must have a ticket to get into this event. 

If you weren’t one of the early birds who scored tickets, you’ll have to fork over some serious cash to get into this event. 

According to Ticketmaster right now, only floor seats are available. 

The cheapest ticket is priced at around $1,200, but good news — that includes the book!
