If you were sad that you weren’t one of the lucky WW members who got to hang out this summer with Oprah at her home in Maui, don’t worry! She’s going on tour! People has more:

On Wednesday, the media mogul announced her first national arena tour in five years, Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus, presented by WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined). Joined by high profile guests, Winfrey, 65, will bring a full day wellness event to nine U.S. cities beginning in January 2020.

“What I know for sure is we can all come together to support a stronger, healthier, more abundant life — focused on what makes us feel energized, connected and empowered,” Winfrey said in a statement. “As I travel the country, my hope for this experience is to motivate others to let 2020 be the year of transformation and triumph — beginning first and foremost with what makes us well. This is the year to move forward, let’s make it happen in 2020!”

Should you be lucky enough to snag tickets, here’s what you can expect:

On each stop, attendees will spend the day with Winfrey as she shares her wellness journey and guides them to develop their own action plan through motivating conversations, the latest in wellness research and interactive exercises.

Each city will feature a different lineup of guests and experiences. Each stop will also feature a signature interview with Winfrey and some of the biggest celebrities, headline-makers and game-changers.

Saturday, Jan. 4: Ft. Lauderdale, FL — BB&T Center
Saturday, Jan. 11: St. Paul, MN — Xcel Energey Center
Saturday, Jan. 18: Charlotte, NC — Spectrum Center

If you are a WW member, you get the first chance to get tickets: Monday, Sep. 9 at 10 a.m. local time. From Tuesday, September 10, at 10 a.m. until Thursday, September 12 at 10 p.m. local time, American Express Card Members can purchase tickets. Any remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 13 at 10 a.m. local time.

These tickets are going to go fast. I’m glad that Oprah is holding her tour on Saturdays to ensure that more people will have the opportunity to go. Maybe she’ll schedule a second leg in the spring to try to get to more cities. I’m curious about who her guests will be and about the different “experiences” that she has planned: It doesn’t sound like she’s going to be “talking at” attendees the entire time, which is great. No one wants to sit and listen to someone lecture for a couple of hours on end, even if that person is Oprah.

    I’m just glad she’s doing this rather than running for president.

    I’m in a mood today but can we please ban the word ‘wellness’?
    Soon it will be all about ‘fineness’ and then ‘nottooshabiness’ (for the Brits).
    Why not go on a ‘imokayness’ journey or a ‘generallystablestateness’ operation?
    Climate change is happening, politicians are playing with our lives like they were playing a crazy game of risk. Let’s get our head out of our b*tts, take good care of ourselves in a good sense kind of way, hug our friends and family and pay attention to what counts. That’s really all we need. Keep your money for yourselves and for good causes. Oprah has enough of it.

      Uh, Snowslow … if you ever go on tour I am going to see you. I am all in for the ‘imokayness’ journey!

      I just came here to say that I’m so sick of “fitness” and “wellness”!!! I don’t want to hear about it anymore! I don’t want to see people in Fabletlemon anymore! I don’t want to see the Peloton ads where people ride to an orgasm, and I don’t want another celebrity cookbook with carrots and parsley! I’m sick of skinny yoga arms!
      The only thing that does not annoy me is Jane Fonda’s aerobics, I want that back.

    How the heck is there no Chicago on that tour?!? Wth! That’s a bummer.

    This makes me nervous. I follow Dr. Jen Gunter (author of The Vagina Bible), and she just said in an interview that wellness is “trendy.” Health is facts. I worry this is going to be wellness BS again ala Goop, Hello Bello, and other celebrity nonsense.

    (I checked out something on Hello Bello – the Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard brand – the other day and this is the disclaimer they use for their vitamins. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.* Okkaay, if you’re wellness product doesn’t diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease, then what the f does it do? It’s candy and nothing more.)

    Oprah gave us Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil for crying out loud.

    When will she just go away and live in her big house . Doesnt she have enough money? Why doesnt she do this tour for free for needy people? Why does she think we care what she says? All these rich celebrities who do their book tours, their how to get fit tours, their fitness books, their vitamins , their lifestyle blogs and on and on should just shut up and live their privileged lifestyles by themselves. I can figure myself out quite well without their attempts to gain a bigger fortune.
