Katie Couric Announces Book Tour For "Going There"

Katie Couric will head out on an 11-city U.S. tour this fall in celebration of her forthcoming memoir, “Going There,” out on October 26th.  Two days following the release of her highly anticipated book, Couric will kick off her tour in Boston at the Orpheum Theatre on October 28th making stops in New York, Philadelphis, and more, before wrapping up in Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium on November 15th.

Couric will bring attendees into her personal and professional life, sharing the emotional, riveting story of a thoroughly modern woman, whose journey took her from humble origins to superstardom. Joined by high profile, fascinating people at every stop, Couric and her special guests (to be revealed at a later date) will exchange stories of their life experiences that will make you laugh, cry, and think.

“Given the challenging period we’ve been through, I’m so excited to be out in the world, creating a sense of community and a place where we can all get together for meaningful conversations, and have some fun, too,” Couric said.

“It is truly an honor to work with the iconic Katie Couric and present her to live audiences across the country. She has always provided so much inspiration to people everywhere, particularly women. Live Nation Women exists to center and amplify women and their stories, and we can’t wait to hit the road with Katie this fall to share hers,” said Ali Harnell, President & CSO LNW.
