Oprah Winfrey announces US wellness tour
Oprah Winfrey is going on a tour of the US – and bringing some of her celebrity friends along with her.
The TV chat show host announced her new venture on social media, telling fans: “Some of the most influential trailblazers and game changers in the world are joining our nine-city celebration of wellness to make 2020 your year to triumph.”
Stars joining Winfrey on the wellness arena tour with WW (Weight Watchers’ new name) will include Oscar-winning actress and singer Lady Gaga, former first lady Michelle Obama and wrestler-turned actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Other stars listed to appear in the show dubbed Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus are Jennifer Lopez, Amy Schumer, Tina Fey, Kate Hudson, Julianne Hough, Tracee Ellis Ross and Gayle King.
The tour will feature one-to-one conversations with a star in each city.
It kicks off on 4 January 2020 with Lady Gaga in Fort Lauderdale, and finishes on 7 March with Winfrey’s best friend, TV journalist Gayle King in Denver.
Other cities it will visit include New York, Los Angles, San Francisco, Dallas and Brooklyn.
One fan on Instagram responded to the announcement to say they would be flying all the way from Australia to see the show.
