Michelle Obama is coming to the Twin Cities.
The beloved former first lady, whose book, “Becoming, An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama,” is flying off shelves to tune of more than 3 million sold since its Nov. 13 release, is coming to the Xcel Center in St. Paul March 13. Tickets for the event go on sale Friday (Dec. 14) with Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration beginning tomorrow (Dec. 12) Verified Fans have first access to purchase tickets for the event at www.ticketmaster.com.
Both the book and tour have been highly anticipated, as Obama has become one of the more sought-after figures in politics and society. The tour is already making headlines with the likes of Oprah Winfrey sitting down for a conversation with the Princeton University and Harvard University educated lawyer and 44th First Lady of the United States. Obama’s husband, former president, Barack Obama has also made a surprise appearance on the tour.
During Barack Obama’s presidency Michelle Obama made multiple trips to the Twin Cities to both campaign for her husband and to support her initiatives such as bringing attention to military spouses whose husbands and wives are serving overseas.
With the fervor over the book and tour, many are speculating Michelle Obama may run for the presidency in 2020 though, thus far, she has been adamant is stating she will not run.
