Michelle Obama’s long-awaited memoir, “Becoming,” will be released Nov. 13 — and then the former first lady will hit the road on a book tour.
The 10-city tour will launch in her hometown of Chicago (naturally) and then criss-cross the country, stopping Friday, Dec. 14, in San Jose.
The Silicon Valley event at SAP Center will be one of only two California appearances; the other is scheduled for Nov. 15 in Los Angeles at The Forum.
Tickets for the tour, co-sponsored by Live Nation and Crown Publishing, go on sale next week, with prices starting at $29.50. But to ensure that fans — and not scalpers or bots — get first crack at the tickets, a pre-registration system has been set up.
Here’s how it works:
Fans can register between now and 10 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 18, at Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform, https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/michelleobama. That will allow them to purchase tickets on Thursday, Sept. 20, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. — before the general public gets to do so starting the next day. (A limited number of VIP and meet-and-greet tickets will also be be available via Ticketmaster.com.)
If you miss that verified fan sale, the public sale will start at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at BecomingMichelleObama.com.
