For the first time in five years, Oprah Winfrey has announced her national 2020 vision: Your Life in Focus tour, in partnership with WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined).
The tour will be held in nine U.S. cities and will include a day full of events to promote a healthy lifestyle. Also, each night, Oprah will have a special guest speaker for the audience to talk about different health experiences and other successful tips.
“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,” said Oprah. “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!
During each tour stop, the audience will be instructed to create an action plan going into the new year. They will also have the chance to listen in on the latest wellness research. Oprah will be interviewing “some of the biggest celebrities, headline-makers, and game-changers,” says Mindy Grossman, President, and CEO of Weight Watchers. Grossman expressed her excitement about the tour and being an inspiration for people who have set goals. “As the leader in weight loss and the world’s partner in wellness, we look forward to giving people the tools, content, and inspiration that can help them on their journey during this tour and beyond through engaging digital experiences on our app or the face-to-face group workshops.”
“For more than three decades, Oprah has used her unparalleled gift to empower audiences to live their healthiest and best lives,” said Amy Weinblum, Chief Business Development Officer, WW. “Creating energizing events and experiences with partners like Oprah and Live Nation is the next iteration of WW showing up to inspire community, making wellness accessible to all.”
The tour will be produced by Live Nation in conjunction with Women Nation, the newly formed division dedicated to women-led and women driven live events. The day-long event will kick off Saturday, January 4 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and make stops in St. Paul, Charlotte, Atlanta, Brooklyn, Dallas, San Francisco and Los Angeles before wrapping Saturday, March 7 in Denver, CO. Exclusive presale access for the WW community begins Monday, September 9 at 10am local time. American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, September 10 at 10am local time through Thursday, September 12 at 10pm local time.
