Michelle Obama announces free ticket giveaway for book tour
By Gaby Pacheco November 2, 2018
Young undocumented immigrants will be among those who will get free tickets to see Michelle Obama when she tours the country this fall with her forthcoming memoir, “Becoming.”
Live Nation, which is organizing Obama’s tour, announced Friday, Oct. 26, that thousands of complimentary tickets will be donated, especially to young people in underserved communities. TheDream.US, which provides scholarships to undocumented youths, will give out tickets for Obama’s stop at San Jose’s SAP Center on Dec. 14.
“It was important to me that all sorts of people could come to the tour events,” Obama said in a statement. “Not just those with means or who happened to be by a computer when the tickets went on sale. That’s why we are giving away thousands of tickets to people around the country, particularly to young people striving to be their best.”
