Oprah Winfrey is taking a self-help show on the road to eight cities this fall, according to The Associated Press, in a series of two-day events giving fans a chance to see and possibly meet her. The closest stop to Long Island will be at Newark's Prudential Center on Sept. 26-27.
The talk-show host and chief of the OWN television network said Wednesday the "Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend" will include some of the personalities she has featured over the years. Also appearing will be OWN host Iyanla Vanzant, "Eat, Pray, Love" author Elizabeth Gilbert and Pastor Rob Bell, with author Deepak Chopra at some of the tour stops.
Winfrey has done speaking engagements and held a few live "Oprah's Life Class" events in recent years, but nothing of this scale, organizers said. Tickets start at $99 and range up to $999. The top price will buy a prime arena seat, gift bags and an opportunity to meet the star. Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. on April 7 at oprah.com/tour.
