Michelle Obama has added 21 new appearances to her international book tour to promote her memoir “Becoming,” officials announced Tuesday morning.

Obama will kick off the second leg of her book tour in Tacoma, Wash., and will concentrate on visiting cities where she hasn’t yet made appearances, such as Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Portland, Ore.; and Milwaukee. On Tuesday, officials had not revealed the lineup of personalities who would interview Obama on her next stops. Besides her appearances in the United States, Obama will also make stops in Amsterdam, London, Oslo, and throughout Canada.

The announcement comes just as Obama has completed a 10-city tour, which kicked off here in her hometown at the United Center on Nov. 13, the day her book was released.

Obama’s book tour has been compared to large-scale rock concerts because she managed to sell out arenas and sports venues in Boston, New York, Detroit, Dallas and other spaces across the country.

Tickets for her appearance at United Center nearly sold out in less than a week, with prices ranging from $29 to $2,500. Ten percent of the tickets to her events were set aside for youth groups and charities.

For fans of John Cusack and “High Fidelity”, a visit to Championship Vinyl definitely would make a “top five” list. 

The hit comedy “High Fidelity” is the story of record shop owner Rob Gordon (John Cusack) on a search for love (and the reasons behind his failed relationships) against a backdrop of over 70 songs spanning multiple decades and genres of music. With – or without – the help of his record store buddies Dick (Todd Luiso) and Barry (Jack Black’s breakout role), Rob revisits past relationships in hopes of figuring out where he has gone wrong. Released in 2000, The New York Times praised John Cusack as “a master at easygoing camaraderie.” Rotten Tomatoes has “High Fidelity” ranked #14 on the list of Best Romantic Comedies. 

Now, join John Cusack for a screening of “High Fidelity” on the big screen followed by a LIVE conversation regarding his career and the making of the film. Fans will get the opportunity to experience a moderated discussion, with John answering audience questions as well. A limited number of VIP seats will be available that include a post-show photo op with John.
