General sale tickets are already sold out.

The former first lady Michelle Obama is paying a visit to the Twin Cities this September.

She will be appearing as a guest of the Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park on Sept. 10, which announced she will take to the stage as part of its National Speaker Series.

Dubbed "A Moderated Conversation With Former First Lady Michelle Obama," tickets have gone on sale. And are pricey.

General sale tickets cost $100 but they're already sold out. So if you want to see Mrs. Obama speak it'll cost you at least $200 for "priority" seating, with "preferred" and "patron" seating also still available for $350 and $500 respectively.

It'll be her first public appearance in the Twin Cities in three years. The last time she paid a visit was in the fall of 2014 when she spoke at a rally for Democrats at Patrick Henry High School ahead of the midterm elections.

She was among a series of high-profile Democrats who visited Minnesota at the time, with Hillary and Bill Clinton as well as former Vice President Joe Biden among those stumping in the state, as reported by the Star Tribune.

Before becoming first lady, Obama attended Princeton University and Harvard Law School. She then became an attorney in Chicago at Sidley & Austin, where she met her future husband.

She later worked for the Chicago mayor's office, University of Chicago, and University of Chicago Medical Center.
