The Queen of All Media is bringing a day of inspiration and wellness to the Queen City this winter. Oprah Winfrey will be embarking on her first national arena tour in five years and it includes a stop at Spectrum Center on January 18th. Charlotte is one of only nine cities on the tour.

Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus, presented by WW (Weight Watchers Reimagined), will feature Winfrey and several high profile guests. The discussions will be geared toward motivating attendees to pursue healthier and more abundant lives. A lot of Oprah’s fans are probably hoping she also announces her bid for the White House. I wouldn’t bet against her.

Tickets are likely to sell quickly. Exclusive ticket pre-sale access for the WW community begins Monday, 9/9 at 10:00 AM. American Express Card Members can buy tickets beginning Tuesday, 9/10 at 10:00 AM through Thursday, 9/12 at 10:00 PM. Remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, 9/13 at 10:00 AM through Ticketmaster.

In true Oprah style, over $1 million from tour proceeds will benefit WW Good, the philanthropic arm of WW that helps provide nutritious food to struggling communities across America. Here’s the full schedule:
