Need a life coach but don’t feel like shelling out more than a one-time fee? Oprah Winfrey has a solution for you. The talk show host/ executive/ actress/ all around badass is embarking on a tour to bring people together and motivate them to take their lives to another level. On her quest, she’s bringing a team of P.R.-friendly and motivated thinkers and speakers, and she would love for you to take it all in and hopefully, make some changes for the positive after you get home.
According to USA Today, the tour will kick off this Fall, and it will be entitled Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend. It’ll take place over the course of eight weekends, each of which will feature two distinct sessions. Winfrey herself will speak on Friday nights, and she will be followed the next day by a cavalcade of all-stars including Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, Pastor Rob Bell, spiritual teacher Iyanla Vanzant and on select dates, author and talking head Deepak Chopra.
Tickets for the events haven’t gone on sale yet, but based on the arenas that have been chosen, it’s pretty clear Winfrey and company are expecting stadium-sized crowds. Given how beloved she is and how many hours people are getting for their money, that’s not a huge shock. After all, it’s not like Winfrey jaunts around the country on a regular basis. She’s a lot closer to Led Zeppelin than she is to the Rolling Stones, if you catch my drift.
Tickets go on sale April 7 at 10 A.M. They will range in price from $99 to $999, which sounds like a lot of money until you consider you’re getting two days of speeches and from the priciest tickets, the chance to meet Oprah Winfrey. If you do get that chance, just remember, she doesn’t put up with bullshit from Lindsay Lohan or anyone else.
