You get to meet Oprah! And you get to meet Oprah! Everyone gets to meet Oprah!
Beginning in September, Oprah Winfrey will cross the country on an eight-city tour called Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend, reports the Hollywood Reporter. She’ll stop in each city for two days. On Friday night, Winfrey will offer her sage life advice; Saturday morning will feature speakers hand-picked by Oprah. Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, pastor Rob Bell and new age guru Deepak Chopra are already on the docket for some cities.
The tour will stop in Atlanta, Auburn Hill, Houston, Miami, Newark, Seattle, San Jose and Washington. Ticket prices will range from $99 to $999—the pricier packages include a meeting with Winfrey herself.
Oprah Winfrey hasn’t interacted with audiences on this kind of scale since the Oprah Winfrey Show ended in 2011. “There’s no question that Oprah’s supreme gift is connecting with an audience,” says OWN president Sheri Salata. Winfrey told The Hollywood Reporter that a tour has been on her “bucket list” for years.
The tour may make more stops depending on the success of the first leg. And who are we kidding—it’s going to be successful.
