Before we get into the details of this, take a moment to re-watch this clip:
"I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."
Well, apparently being wealthy enough to buy a $15 million estate is not "enough money" for the Obamas.
We say this because Michelle Obama is charging up to $4.2K per ticket for her new tour!
The cheapest budget tickets for a seat to Mrs. Obama's first tour stop in Newark, NJ are $144. This jumps up to $1.3K if you want a floor seat. Adding on a "meet & greet" with Michelle will cost $2.5K. The aforementioned $4.2K are for a suite at the show.
This begs the question: what is "enough money" to Barack Obama?
It also makes us wonder who exactly is buying these tickets?
And, we don't seem to be the only ones!
Check out these responses to the news of Michelle's elite, expensive upcoming tour on Twitter:
The New York Post has more details on the expensive Michelle Obama tour:
Former first lady Michelle Obama is coming to Newark Nov. 3 and fans are shelling out big bucks to hear what she has to say.
The cheap seats for the “Moderated Conversation” at the Prudential Center were going for $144 on Ticketmaster.
Want face time? Prime seats and a “meet and greet” will cost you $2,500.
Floor seats are priced as high as $1,300 and the most expensive ticket currently available is $4,200 for a suite-level ducat.
But, hey, at least the $4.2K you're shelling out will get you a free copy of Michelle Obama's memoir!
As Breitbart says,
The most expensive ticket is listed for $4,200, giving the attendee a “suite-level ducat,” according to the New York Post.
Meet and greet tickets are selling for $2,500. The VIP package allows groups of two to take a picture with Obama, but Ticketmaster specifies that individual pictures and autographs will not be permitted.
“Free hard cover copy of Michelle Obama’s book, Becoming. Refreshments served First 2 rows, floor seating,” Ticketmaster adds.
The cheapest tickets are listed for $144 for two. Individual tickets appear to be available for $104. Floor seats are “as high as $1,300,” the Post adds.
The event comes on the heels of Obama’s Becoming tour, which also featured costly tickets.
