She’s back! Former FLOTUS Michelle Obama is coming back to Ontario this fall, in an appearance that actually might be affordable this time - if you get your tickets early enough, that is. The Michelle Obama Hamilton show has been set for Friday, October 11th at the First Ontario Centre. The event is part of a speaking tour called An Evening With Former First Lady Michelle Obama.
“The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is thrilled to be able to bring former first lady Michelle Obama to Hamilton,” said Keanin Loomis, president and CEO of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce to Global News. “Her message of a renewed sense of purpose, passion, and energy will resonate in all corners of our community.”
Obama was in Toronto in May during a stop for her promotional book tour, Becoming. The event sold out almost entirely in minutes and left fans with only the Official Platinum ticket options. Tickets at the time were priced at $865 CAD and went all the way up to a whopping $2,298 CAD just for a single seat at the Scotiabank Arena.
Thankfully, cheap tickets are still currently available for the event since according to Ticketmaster, they don’t technically go on sale to the general public until Thursday, June 20th at 10:00 AM.
Ticket prices for the upcoming event currently range from $89 CAD to $269 CAD, plus taxes and fees. According to The Hamilton Spectator, Mrs. Obama is expected to have over 13,000 attendees at her October speaking event.
