Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama fans are bitterly disappointed over the Beyonce-like prices for her upcoming arena book tour, which kicks off at the United Center in Chicago on November 13.

The ambitious arena book tour will be bigger than Beyonce and JAY=Z's On The Run II tour. It's already larger than any speaking gig undertaken by her husband, former President Barack Obama.

Fans who weren't lucky enough to grab the cheapest tickets to Mrs. Obama's book tour when they went on sale are now out of luck.

Ticket prices for Mrs. Obama's book tour ranged from $29.50 to $3,000. The cheap seats sold out quickly.

Hardcore Michelle Obama fan Michelle Duster, who wrote a whole book about the First Lady, is deeply disappointed.

“I didn’t anticipate the lowest price would be $500, five minutes into the ticket sales,” Duster told CBS2.

She said the Obamas seem to be out of touch with the very people who staunchly supported them.

“I think there’s a disconnect: what they stand for, what they have stood for and worked for, and the ticket prices,” said Duster.

The demand for tickets was so high for Obama's United Center date, that a second show may be added -- if she can sell enough tickets to her first show.

With tickets now starting at $500, ticket sales have slowed -- much like ticket sales for Michelle's good friends, Beyonce and JAY-Z, who were forced to drop a track in the middle of their tour to boost slumping ticket sales.

Some Obama fans get the feeling that the Obamas are not down with "regular folk".

Political consultant Delmarie Cobb says, “They have a reason to be upset because I’m sure they felt that if she was going to be a book tour, it was going to be for the masses, not just for the elite."

Kyra Kyles, a former Ebony editor-in-chief and current contributor told The Grio, “You definitely wanted everyone to see her who can, but there’s also an element of ‘be proud of her.’ This is a former First Lady who made history and now she’s making history the way she’s doing her book tour."

In her book, Michelle Obama takes readers on a journey from her humble beginnings as a youngster on Chicago's South Side to her legacy as the nation's only Black First Lady.

She clears up why her law license got suspended in 1993, and she lays out her plans for Democratic dominance in the 2020 presidential election.

It's worth the price of the book to learn the reason for the pain behind her smiling eyes.

    If you're truly a diehard fan you should have already gotten your tickets or you should just suck it up and pay the price for the tix. Or just buy the damn book and chill out. It's not that deep.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Why not! She is a brand. The tour has already sold out! Comgratulations Michelle Obama!

  • Damian Jordan

    Either pay the $$$ or sit back & STFU!

  • dontgetblocked

    I've been saying the Obamas were money hungry and fame seekers for years. What's sad is that many women admire Michelle and would love to take their daughters. For the most part, Michelle is a good role model. Everything shouldn't be about money. Sometimes its about the community.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Either pay the price for the tickets or shut up.

  • Lisa ????

    Look. That $3000 comes with something and I'm guessing its access to Michelle. The rock stars do the same thing. Bon Jovi, Drake, et al charge their fans thousands of dollars for backstage access.

    I also hope that ticket comes with the book.

    Same koons and mammies going buck on OG Kush, top shelf booze, bottle service BEYONCE TICKETS new grills new rims new GUCCI belts got the nerve to be dissing the FIRST and maybe LAST black first lady of the United States ticket prices for her book tour?

  • abby500

    So it’s ok for Bono, The Rolling Stones, Paul Mc Carthy and others to sell tickets at high prices, but when blacks to it, it faces scrutiny. Ms. Duster, if you can’t afford or don’t want to pay, then DON’T GO.

  • dru and neil

    If the prices ranged from 29.00 - 3,000.00, there is no “disconnect,” she just missed out. You got to get it while the getting is good. Of course the cheaper tickets sold out first, no need to run around saying there’s a “disconnect” because you missed out on the cheap tickets. She can’t be that big of fan to be trying to shame somebody just because she can’t afford a ticket.

  • dru and neil

    She wouldn’t be saying there’s a problem with the prices, if she got one of the 29.00 tickets.

  • dru and neil

    That woman sounds like a petulant child. She’s upset that the cheap tickets are gone, so she’s literally lying, by saying they didn’t make the tour accessible enough to all social classes, what a damn brat.

  • hi-liter

    Don’t need to be worrying about private citizens. Worry about ya fat belly azz ignorant president mixing and making money off of his presidency. He takes his entire cabinet to Mar-a-Lago every weekend seems like. He pays himself when he goes to HIS golf courses and hotels with government money, our tax money. Worry about THAT.

  • hi-liter

    Damn this list is perfect! We need to put this up for cutting and pasting on this hoes when they come here with that BS talking about what Barry didn’t do.

  • Disgustd

    The only OG Kush I've spent money on is the EP by Australian Neo-soul singer, Kaitt, I would also never pay any money for Beyonce tix or overpriced designer anything and I still say that if some black people don't realize by now that the Obamas 'ain't for you and never were', then nothing else needs to be said. And btw, El Cheeto ain't shit either..but then again, I realize that (p)residents are nothing but the face of the corporation called Amerika and don't really run anything. They don't even have the highest level of security clearance in government so that should tell you something. The former FLOTUS tix prices reflect what she knows people equate her and her husband with-celebrity. And style over substance.

  • Li-Wright

    This ^^ LMAO

  • KB

    If the tickets were free, someone would find a reason to complain. Some people can’t ever be satisfy. Either pay the money or don’t go. I tell you it is always something with some people.

  • Dreamer

    What the rest of y’all said. Either pay the ticket price or don’t go. It could truly all be so simple ? She’s a public figure. People are trying to devalue her because she’s a classy and graceful black woman and the first and so far only black FLOTUS. TUH. Y’all betta our some RESPECK on Michelle’s name!! Congrats, beautiful!

  • Fire & Ice

    White people stay finding ways to fatten their pockets. Six stacks lawwwd ?

  • http://educate-empower.org Educate2Empower Inc.

    She and her husband (along with their daughters) support artists like Jay-Z who push an agenda that doesn't really work for us when you really analyze the lyrics, so no surprise about where she's heading with the concept of a tour, which will surely be on Netflix eventually! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPy9pS9sz_Y

  • hottlanta

    Wow black folks are expected 2 give stuff away or do shyt at a discount. Even crooked richard nixon will let u know of u wanted 2 talk 2 him you gotta pay him more than 2 dollars.

    Yet dump charge 6000.00 per golf cart for secret service 2 protect his azz each time he plays golf n no one says anything.

    The Donald has his own private security too that HE pays. Plus the normal secret is provided to all presidents.

  • TransMichelle

    It's not OK for them to charge those prices either. But white folks have much much much more money that black folks. They can afford it. The Odumbas are completely disconnected from black folks and they don't care either just hand over your money.

  • hottlanta

    Really. Did why does his ugly azz son always has secret service with him when he goes hunting. He is not a employee on business. Cant wait until one of the lions attack his azz.

  • Misslaydj

    My mom got seats right off the floor at MSG for 200 bucks a ticket with taxes and fees and that is a normal concert price where some of u pay to c regular folks. As an FYI you would think that the band/performer set the price of tickets, but unfortunately that is no longer the case. Managers, promoters, venues, and ticketing agencies all have a hand in it now. She didn't sit at home and say hey, let me charge these people 500 bucks a ticket.

  • SpillyNillie

    It's all about how people value their money. If they have it or have to save for it, it's there's to spend as they wish...I wouldn't pay $500, maybe $250.

  • TransMichelle

    What's Melania got to do with this? Melania speaks around the world. She will be in Africa in October. That nicca Michelle and Odumba promoted phags in Africa. And Odumba threatened to cut their aid if they didn't accept phags. You trying to deflect because you know Michelle is useless like her husband. Toodles Child Bye

  • TransMichelle

    You trying to act like black people have wealth. Black people do not have generational wealth. We are the poorest minority with the highest unemployment. Spending $2000 on a ticket is completely foolish. The Cosby Show and Blackish are not and were not a real depiction of black life it's more like good times. The lady in the article who is black was even surprised at the prices. People with money use it wisely and this is why black folks are broke because the money is used for stupid shish like going to see Odumba's beard Michelle.

  • Phillybruh

    I never said anything about wealth, I said black people have the money to attend this event if they so choose too. LOL @ more like goodtimes again your generalizing because your situation is more like goodtimes. I know plenty of black people who are doing very very well.

    The Obamas are part of the elite. Plenty of people will support her and pay those high ticket prices. She is living her bet life and ain't going back and forth with you n______! Her plan is to make millions and that is exactly what she is going to do. Somebody will upload it to social media at some point and I'll watch then. Shrugs...

    Exactly. Do people want her to charge $5 a ticket, and give away 5,000 tickets to the homeless?
    Michelle has appeared lots of places for free. But her book is a moneymaking venture, as is the book tour. Let the woman get paid, is how I see it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    And if she charged only $5.00 then folks would say the prices were too cheap and the venues are filled with riff-raff. She's a business woman doing what business people do and that's make money.

    You got plenty of illusions that's what you got. Here's where black folks are really at.

  • ImWoke

    There’s a simple solution for this. If you don’t agree with the prices, don’t buy the tickets. If you can’t afford the tickets read the book until the tour footage hits Netflix.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Exactly. I am curious what duster thinks obama stand for? Hate, racism, lies....

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Brand my arse! I like her but we aren't friends! She hob knobs with Bey & Jay well she can get their money. Nucca PLEASE! Michelle wouldn't be famous if it weren't for the people and now she wants an arm and a leg for a dam book tour...GTFOH...YALL PAY THAT ISH!

  • Phillybruh

    That's where you are!

  • EyeEmJai

    I understand you. You can pay for Michelle. I am Black, and can pay to see Michelle as well. However, I won't spend over $600 to see Michelle, even if the money is laying there. I don't have $2000, a figure example used by TransMichelle, to see Michelle either. That $2000 will go elsewhere that is profitable investments. I won't respond vaguely and/or fib just to counter someone's comment lol. Trans is correct; spending $2000 on things regularly that has no return to you will impact your worth. We (Blacks) don't have generational wealth as previously stated.

  • Phillybruh

    This has nothing to do with generational wealth. If person A has it and wants to spend it to go see Michelle then she can. If you have it and don't want too spend you don't have too. I don't see where Michelle is out here telling you to do so? All black folks aint the same, all black folks ain't broke.

  • Quitedeliteful

    So true!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Oh Fawk the elite... WTH IS AN ELITE? SYOP PUTTING FOLK ON A PEDALSTLE. The LOVE OF MONEY has ruined humanity. You can feed into this written hype all you want... Consider yourself a FOLLOWER! Keep rebuttle...in fact passy message on to the Elite ;^

  • TransMichelle

    No nicca that's the state of black folks in this country. That's the data. You're trying too hard. People who do have don't talk about. You're a poser chump. Toodles

  • Connie

    We need to put this up for cutting and pasting
    ~~~
    I sure did!

  • Quitedeliteful

    They ARE part of the elite whether you want to fawk with them or not. You said I put them on a pedestal -- your words not mine. I am a follower OF MY OWN DAMN MIND AND THOUGHTS. No rebuttle here. Just the facts. You sound pressed. If money is the ruination of humanity then give yours up and go live in a commune. The End.

  • Elevated Soul

    LMAO!!!!.....Welcome to the club! I have been accused of being several people including Sandra Rose. Black Democrats are so slave minded that they can't conceive not all Black people think alike.

  • Renee26

    I was willing to pay 150 but those also sold out fast during the presale... I had to confirm that my travel mate could afford that amount and ended up missing the opportunity

  • Phillybruh

    That's the state of some black folks in this country. NOT ALL.

  • Elevated Soul

    There is also a photo of Obama sitting in between the legs of his male Arab benefactor before he married Moochelle......I will also mention Larry Sinclair too.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Exactly!

  • hottlanta

    Folks complain about Michelle high ticket prices but praises Mylanta for her high ticket priced clothes.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I got my ticket andvi cannot wait. I rather spend hundreds to be innthe presence of this inteligent woman than to go wash mr and mrs cheat "i take you back and disguise it as real love". Bite ha

    Yikes! Why are we the only ones who resort to using the n-word to describe our own people?!? That's not "keeping it real." We've got so much work to do. https://ferris.edu/news/jimcrow/caricature/

  • TransMichelle

    Check the stats. Some does not mean the whole. Black folks as a whole have no wealth. And don't tell me about black spending power it has nothing to do with wealth. For instance, "The existing infrastructure of black-owned banks lacks the capacity to produce wide and substantial increases in black wealth. Even if they were to quadruple their assets, black banks would not be major players on the American economic landscape, never mind the global landscape. Moreover, since black wealth is so low in the first place, it is a fantasy to anticipate that the existing black consumer base could build a black-owned equivalent of JPMorgan Chase."

    White liberals have you believing that everything is fine with the black population while they give precedence to illegals, Asians, women, transgenders, Africans, and other folks. It's not about some black people. As a whole the black population does not have wealth. There are black folks with jobs but the average black household wealth is around $1700 or negative while white wealth is $100,000 and more. The Cosby Show and Blackish are pure fantasy. How many Oprahs do we have compared to whites Bill Gates?

    It doesn't mean that black folks don't have jobs or that some don't own their own home it means that as a whole we have no wealth our black dollars are not getting us anywhere. Michelle is wrong for not considering the state of the black population but they didn't care while Odumba was in the white house so why should they care now? Child I said bye before. Now it's for real lol Toodles

  • Tell the truth

    No difference if whom ever can pay high prices for a singer then you can pay high prices for the first African American former First Lady ?

  • Phillybruh

    I am under no delusion that everything is fine with black America the only thing I'm saying is not all of black America fits into your narrative.

  • TransMichelle

    I don't care what you do clown

  • Eileen

    so much for income equality that they preached for the past 8 miserable years we had to suffer from this black elite couple!

  • Rhondalousey

    Oh shut up. Its been a little over year and people are ready to commit suicide with dotard in the office!

  • Rhondalousey

    Yawn!

  • Rhondalousey

    Okay! These people are lined up monthly to pay for high priced, recycled jordans but complain about the flotus's prices?

  • Joi Williams

    I got my tickets, worth every penny. If I spent it to see Jay and Bey I would play myself not to spend it to see FLOTUS!! Are you kidding me?
    I love her and I would have paid more than that honestly. Im going with my mother and I cant wait!

  • TransMichelle

    90% of what you put on this list is garbage. My Brothers' Keeper was a farce. Where is it now? The Nobel Peace Prize was a mistake and 99.9999% people agree.It was given to Odumba for his skin color and being the first US "colored" president not for any accomplishments. The Donald should get one for his accomplishments with North Korea though. He stopped a whole invasion and possible nuclear war. Odumba didn't do a dam thing with Bin Laden he was dead a long time ago. Odumba the incompetent set there acting like what he was viewing was real. They did a lot to prop this nicca up. The school nutrition was a flop by his moron wife Michelle. I could go on forever. Now, here's the serious things that nicca did:

    Odumba is a tragic indicator of the state of the American mindset's plunge into open degeneracy and worthless pig ignorance, and he is entirely too full of your own bullshyt to even recognize what a general chronic f**k-up he is.
    He is the very living definition of a Leadership failure. A man without any of, “the right stuff”.

    A hypocrite on every level, who systematically reversed his position on every key issue that he’s dealt with, or commented on, prior to being elected. Remember when he said: "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman before he got elected." Then did a complete 360 degree turn after he got into office.

    Yes we can ... bullshyt you into poverty! Should have been his motto.

    "Odumba represents race war for International Communism. The goal of International Communism is one world government, one world bank, one world currency and one world religion of worship of the state.
    The method Odumba used was race division and Cultural Marxism of using the homosexual movement to disrupt our nations social mores. If the social mores of a nation can be overturned, the classes based on economic mobility can be destroyed leading to one class and an uber wealthy elite of the few ruling our nation."

    All Odumba did was not much, but excite all the activist out there and to aid in making sure many of us had no avenue for change or be heard, just attacked in various ways. Plus using crap like ‘Political Correctness and all the labeled “hate” crap to further the global agenda and again to see us silenced, put on a list, or face retribution by the fascist. At least he allowed all the various Communist, the corrupt, and veteran haters to show themselves like the entertainment industry and Hollywood has. His “change” and ‘transformation of America” sucks.

    Odumba and his DOJ refused to prosecute VA fraudsters caught red-handed in the cookie jar. NOT that “Change I can believe in”. One of the very first things he did was send troops into Afghanistan, something he said he would NOT do….Obama’s failed international policies has created this huge divide and this country lost a measurable amount of respect in the world. Odumba refused to follow the law and use the powers he and the DOJ had at their disposal to flush the VA Swamp…they chose not to. Odumba is the most at war president in history dropping over 200'000 bombs on countries with people of color and he did not end the Iraq war.

    After Odumba's eight years everything turned divisive and negative.This all has its roots in the cultural shift perpetrated by the Left: the shift of replacing accomplishment with entitlement. Child Bye
    Obama is a feminist you can tell by the way he dances.

  • TransMichelle

    That's it

  • TransMichelle

    The Donald was a billionaire before he got into office. The Donald doesn't even take a salary. All the presidents before Odumba kept their azzes low key. They didn't go out criticizing the new president. It's just low class and not the "American way." Odumba has gone against the Logan Act and committed treason. An x US president on Netflix? Trash just simply trash

    Sigh...We're the only ones to fight for and be complicity with BS. Every other group understands how important a group's image is and the impact of how they speak to one another can make or break it. Not us though. We will support and downplay a derogatory racial slur and its impact. #OneLove #DoYou

  • TawnyDelux

    I didn't suffer...

  • chris

    As many beyonce concerts the obamas have been seen attending i find your comment to be pretty ironic.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Okay. Thanks for sharing.

    The prices would be more palatable if she donated the proceeds.
