The Oprah Winfrey experience is coming to an arena near you

Posted: Updated:

Starting in September, Winfrey will set out on an eight-city Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend tour.

The plan: pack 18,000-seat arenas for a two-day experience featuring a keynote by Winfrey, who will share her personal story and advice on Friday night, and group activities and speakers picked by her on Saturday. Among those signed to participate: Eat Pray Love author Elizabeth Gilbert, pastor Rob Bell, OWN star Iyanla Vanzant and, in certain cities, guru Deepak Chopra.

Tickets will go on sale April 7 on a relaunched Oprah.com.

The move comes as Winfrey, 60, continues to push her brand in new directions.

She made a high-profile return to acting in Lee Daniels' The Butler in 2013 and is in talks to star opposite Audra McDonald in a Broadway revival of the Pulitzer-winning 'night, Mother.

Officials suggests there could be more tour stops, too.
