Oprah Winfrey is about to check another item off her bucket list – and some of our lists, too. The media maven plans to kick off an eight-city “Life You Want” tour this September.
“It’s about living the life you want, because a great percentage of the population is living a life that their mother wanted, that their husband wanted, that they thought or heard they wanted,” says Winfrey to The Hollywood Reporter.
Winfrey will use the tour to push “empowerment, resilience, and authenticity.” The two-day event will begin with a keynote address from Winfrey on Friday night followed by group activities and special guest speeches from “Eat, Pray, Love” author Elizabeth Gilbert, Fix My Life coach Iyanla Vanzant, and occasionally meditation expert Deepak Chopra on Saturday night.
Winfrey plans to pack arenas in Atlanta; Auburn Hills, MI; Houston; Miami; Newark, NJ; Seattle; San Jose; and Washington, DC. Ticket prices range from $99 to $999, the latter being a VIP package than can include meeting Winfrey. (Can? Um, $99, please.)
Tickets go on sale April 7 on her website.
