Oprah Winfrey takes a show on the road
NEW YORK (AP) — Oprah Winfrey is taking a self-help show on the road.
The talk-show host and chief of the OWN television network will visit eight cities this fall for a two-day arena event called "Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend."
Winfrey will go onstage on a Friday night in each city. The next day, a circle of personalities she has featured on the OWN network and her talk show over the years will join in.
OWN personality Iyanla Vanzant, "Eat, Pray, Love" author Elizabeth Gilbert and Pastor Rob Bell are among the people who will join the tour for each weekend, with author Deepak Chopra an occasional guest.
Organizers said Wednesday the first stop will be in Atlanta on the first weekend of September.
