Michelle Obama’s book promotion circuit priced like a rock star tour

[Ed. – Good grief.  Will people really pay these prices?]

Last week, Michelle Obama announced her nationwide book tour of “Becoming,” her first memoir. But when tickets went live on Friday, fans freaked out at the sky-high prices, which are as expensive as going to a Beyoncé concert.

Nosebleed seats start at $30, while front-row seats go for $3,000 and include a pre-show photo opportunity with the former first lady, a signed book, and other “VIP” gifts. To put it in perspective, VIP tickets to Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s “On The Run II” tour are $1,000. …

“This is for the upper-middle to upper class only,” tweeted another Obama fan. “The rest of us can’t swing $200 for one ticket.”
