“Oprah Winfrey will speak about the moments throughout her life that helped direct her on her path before being joined on stage by a special guest who impacted her journey for a unique one-on-one conversation,” Live Nation said.

The tour will promote Winfrey’s new book, The Path Made Clear, which was released last month. Live Nation described the New York Times Bestseller as providing “inspiration and guidance to help readers discover not only who they are, but who you are meant to be.”

The tour kicks off in Toronto on Friday, June 14, before seeing Winfrey make stops in Montreal (June 16), Calgary (June 19), Edmonton (June 20) and Vancouver (June 24).

“If you’re feeling stuck or at a crossroads, there’s no need to waste another moment wondering if there is more to life,” Winfrey said of what her speaking appearances will be focused on. “Of course there is. And it’s yours for the finding.”

Tickets for Winfrey’s Canadian tour will go on sale on Friday, May 3 at 10 a.m. local time.

In 2013, the 65-year-old former talk show host was honoured with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by former U.S. president Barack Obama.
