Oprah Winfrey to headline at the Palace
Sometimes, the press releases we receive are simply too weird not to share. Oprah Winfrey will headline two nights at the Palace of Auburn Hills on September 12 and 13, dubbed “Oprah’s The Life You Want Weekend.”
Oh really, Oprah? Well, unless you’re planning on placing a large check under the seat of every Detroiter in attendance, and then dropping a few off around the city, good luck to you.
“All of my life I have wanted to lead people to an empathy space. To a gratitude space,” said Oprah. “I want us all to fulfill our greatest potential. To find our calling, and summon the courage to live it.”
According to the press release, “The tour stop will span two days. On Friday night, Oprah will take the stage, bringing her personal story and insights to life in a one of a kind intimate evening. Then on Saturday, Oprah will lead a day-long gathering of thousands with handpicked thought leaders and pop culture icons including Iyanla Vanzant, star of OWN’s hit series Iyanla Fix My Life, regular O Magazine contributor, best-selling author and spiritual life coach; best-selling author of Eat Pray Love, Elizabeth Gilbert; and one of Time 100’s Most Influential people, Pastor Rob Bell. Additionally, world-renowned author and pioneer in mind-body medicine Deepak Chopra will take the stage in select cities.”
Tickets are a staggering $99. Want to make the lives of Detroiters better, Oprah. Give away your hokey bullshit for free.
