Tell us EVERYTHING.

She might not live in the White House anymore, but that hasn’t stopped Former First Lady Michelle Obama inspiring us on the regular.

In fact, she’s the go-to girl when it comes to pep talks.

It’s hardly surprising therefore that when it was announced that the 54-year-old was touring to celebrate her new memoir, Becoming, with award-winning novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, tickets were hard to come by.

The 13-night tour starts next week in her hometown of Chicago, where she will sit on-stage with Oprah Winfrey, before going on to tour other cities – even London.

Yes, Michelle Obama is coming to London and everyone is very excited, with the former First Lady reported to be discussing everything from her childhood and motherhood to ‘her time spent at the world’s most famous address‘.

Surprise surprise, the 2,900 tickets available at the Royal Festival Hall sold out in seconds with tens of thousands of fans taking to Twitter to voice their disappointment.

We crossed our fingers that Michelle might as a result choose new tour dates, and sure enough today our prayers were answered.

Michelle Obama is extending her Becoming tour, bringing ‘Becoming: An Intimate Conversation With Michelle Obama’ back to London for a bigger gig at The 02 in 2019.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Saturday 15 December.

We officially cannot wait for this!
