Media mogul, Oprah, 60, is going on tour. And no she’s not singing, rather giving advice, and being a positive influence on people who have not and are not following their dreams.

Her message for the tour: “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.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oprah, and a few selected friends, are going on an eight-city weekend tour starting in September to bring “empowerment, resilience and authenticity.” From $99 to $999 per ticket, you can join the movement and even meet Oprah herself.

The strategy for Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend tour is to fill 18,000 seat arenas for a two-day self-help experience. Winfrey will share her personal story and advice on Friday nights, leaving Saturdays devoted to group activities including selected speakers.

Among those on the roster to join Winfrey on this enlightening tour are author of Eat Pray Love Elizabeth Gilbert, OWN star Iyanla Vanzant, pastor Rob Bell, and in certain cities, guru Deepak Chopra.

Winfrey will stop in Atlanta; Auburn Hills, Michigan; Miami; Houston; Newark, New Jersey; Seattle; San Jose, California; and Washington State. OWN Network’s president, Erik Logan reveals, “We believe that this will be successful. And if it is to the degree we think it will be, you should expect us to continue.”

According to THR, a domestic tour has been on Oprah’s “bucket list.” She continues to push her brand in new avenues as we’ve seen in her high-profile return to acting in Lee Daniels’ The Butler (2013). Winfrey remains pushing through her dreams as she is in talks for a Broadway play opposite Audra McDonald.

Tickets go on sale April 7th.
