First of all our April 12th tickets were Faye's doing and there is only ONE way to get them. They can't be bought. They can't be found. I wouldn't even really say you win them. They are earned.
I say they are earned because I believe they are divinely awarded to those who deserve them, those who need them, and to those who will further embrace the spirit of Oprah and pass on to others. This may sound crazy, but if you are an Oprah fan, you understand.
It's a good idea to join the Oprah Community on her web site. Then diligently and faithfully check The Oprah Show web site every day. You can then request to see the show and be in the audience by checking Last-Minute Reservations, Reservations By Topic, and the Current Reservations window which usually only is open for 12-24 hours, once a month. Read more about Oprah Tickets.
So over the past months, I requested and wrote Oprah several times. I even tried to get to her After Oscar show, and submitted show ideas for her farewell season. Faye did the same, but 10 fold. Then on March 15 (my birthday), the Oprah Reservation Window opened briefly, perhaps for the last time!? Faye submitted her reservation request and the next morning she had an email from Oprah... she got tickets!
So within 48 hours, Faye was to confirm the four guest names who would be attending. Next, we received the Oprah Reservation Info Sheet which explained seating, arrival time and location, required ID, dress code, security, cancellations and any special needs.
We will not know the topic of the show until we get there on April 12th, but regardless we are over the moon that this will probably be one of her last 20 shows or so.
Oprah, we're doing our best to look and feel and be our best when we see you!
Jeremy! Nothing dramatic, just a trim, and warmed up color with some highlights.
