Oprah Winfrey's coming to Australia and New Zealand! But it'll co$t you...
Earlier this week Oprah Winfrey made the announcement that she would be returning Down Under to visit Australia and New Zealand for an extra special 'Evening with Oprah' Tour kicking off in December.
Naturally, everyone freaked the f*ck out as they prepared themselves to receive free cars amidst a myriad of other gifts from the generous talk show host.
But this tour is a little different.
Average ticket prices for the common concert and festival usually range between $100-$200, although it has become quite clear that Oprah is trying to break bank in her upcoming Australian shows.
The cheapest ticket available for her shows is $104 as limited availabity side view seats. Category 1 and 2 are valued at $264 and $387, with 'Ultimate' and 'Premium' Fan packages priced at $611, $713 and $815.
Smash open your piggy banks and hope for the best, but that isn't even the worst of it *cries*.
If you are a diehard Oprah fan, then don't worry about seating yourself among the others in the 'Ultimate Fan' sections, there is a special package catered for you.
The 'Sound Check Package' gets you a "thrilling opportunity to see Oprah from amazing seats in rows 4-10 from the stage!" according to the ticketing site. At what price? only a measly $2,500!!
Loose change basically.
The Sound Check package also gets you a personal photo opportunity (photo's taken in groups according the number of tickets bought on each transaction), a Q&A session with Oprah during her pre-show soundcheck (not all questions are guarenteed to be answered), and a 90 minute pre-show cocktail party with "a delicate assortment of complimentary canapés, fine wines and premium beers" (in which Oprah won't actually attend).
The package will grant you all the bells and whistles including priority check-in, red carpet and early access to a merchandise stand - which have been valued ranging between $611 to $815!
Prices aside, Oprah cannot wait to have a meaningful and intimate connection with her audience nontheless.
"I look forward to being reconnected, rejuvenated and re-inspired about what is possible for our lives", she claims.
We look forward to Range Rover giveaways and trips to Disney World all expenses paid...please?
