Come down! “The Price Is Right Live” returns to Kalamazoo

For nearly 14 years, one of America’s most beloved game shows has hit cities across the United States, bringing with it up to $12 million in cash and prizes. When The Price is Right Live comes to Kalamazoo this fall, you won’t want to miss it!

First, let me be clear: I’m a The Price is Right fanatic. Anyone who knows me knows that I watch the show religiously and take my price sets and MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) very seriously. I consider that a bad omen for the day it’s a Showcase double-over.

Now, if you’ve never heard of or seen a The Price is Right Live road show before, there are a few key differences. The main difference being the host – Drew Carey is not on the traveling version of this show, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

However, a “celebrity host” will guide you through your The Price is Right Live experience as he fills Bob Barker/Drew Carey’s shoes. There’s a rotating cast of celebrity hosts, so it’s unclear who will show up on stage! Past celebrity hosts have included Drew Lachey (98 Degrees), Joey Fatone (N’Sync), Jerry Springer and Marc Summers (TV shows Dare doubly).

Another way The Price is Right Live differs from the classic game show is that the traveling version is not televised. This may disappoint some, but may also relieve others! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen a contestant fall backwards after spinning the Ferris wheel on TV – I’ve heard it’s heavier than it looks.

While it might not be the exact same version we saw growing up, you’ll still be able to play classic games like Cliffhangers, Punch-a-Bunch, Plinko, and if you have the luck, you can make it to Showcase Showdown! No purchase is necessary to register and have the chance to participate.

The Price is Right Live will be at Miller Auditorium on Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are on sale now.
