Live Nation and Crown Publishing are extending former First Lady Michelle Obama's Becoming book tour into 2019, with 21 new North American and European dates.
After a smash run of 12 arenas in 10 cities, the Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama will hit 11 U.S. cities, as well as four stops in Canada and six in Europe, kicking off with a Feb. 8 show in Tacoma, Wash. at the Tacoma Dome.
The tour will then hit Portland, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, St. Paul, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Vancouver and Edmonton before heading to Europe and then returning on May 1 for the final North American dates in Montreal, Toronto, Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta, wrapping up on May 12 with a show at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. The tour, which will hit venues ranging from arenas to more intimate theaters, will once again include to-be-announced moderators; the original Dec. 5 Paris date that was postponed to allow Obama to attend the funeral of President George H.W. Bush has been rescheduled for April 16.
