Award winning journalist and best-selling author Katie Couric has revealed the nine special guests that will be joining her on the road for her 2021 Going There Tour, produced by Live Nation and in partnership with P&G.
In celebration of her forthcoming memoir, Going There, out on October 26th, the tour kicks off October 28th in Boston with special guest Tan France.

Couric will chronicle her personal story, that of a thoroughly modern woman, whose journey took her from humble origins to superstardom. With her trademark empathy, humor, and charm, each stop will feature an intimate conversation that will make you laugh, cry, and think.
The shows will also include Katie on stage revisiting events that have shaped our lives, with the people who were at the center of the headlines–from 9/11 and the Boston Marathon, to gun violence, cancer advocacy, the Me Too movement and more. She will also be spotlighting local grassroots charities in every city.
The tour is in partnership with P&G, maker of Tide, Pampers and Olay.
