Michelle Obama is releasing her memoir, Becoming, on Nov. 13 and then will go on a speaking tour around the country.
After a few hours, the event’s official vendor, Ticketmaster, was sold out all of the standard tickets for many shows.
Live Nation, which owns Ticketmaster, told in a statement that tickets for the event started out at $29.50.
They added that 10% of the tickets were being set aside for “local charities, schools, and community groups free of charge.”
“The demand for the Michelle Obama tour has been extraordinary and bringing her to arenas maximizes the number of people able to attend,” the company said.
