She’ll be speaking at Rogers Arena on Thursday, March 21st, 2019. Other Canadian stops include Edmonton (March 22), Montreal (May 3) and Toronto (May 4).

This extension of the tour will include 21 events in 2019 across North America and Europe produced by Live Nation, including 11 additional events in the U.S., 4 in Canada, and 6 in Europe.

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

Described as a deeply personal experience, Becoming talks about her childhood on the South Side of Chicago and how that has shaped her to be the person she is today.

Consequently, this powerful memoir sold more copies than any other book published in the United States in 2018, breaking the record in just 15 days.

Tickets are still available starting at US$81.55 on StubHub.
