‘Wheel of Fortune Live’ heads to Kansas City with host Clay Aiken. How to get tickets
America’s Game is coming soon to a venue near you – and it’s bringing some familiar faces along with it.
“Wheel of Fortune Live!” will make more than 60 stops on an upcoming tour this fall — including Nov. 25 in Kansas City — bringing “an all-new theatrical experience” and live-stage version of the popular TV game show.
The tour announced Monday that the production will feature “American Idol” star Clay Aiken and Mark L. Walberg, longtime host of PBS’ “Antiques Roadshow” as rotating hosts throughout the tour.
Aiken will host the Kansas City stop in the Muriel Kauffman Theatre at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
“Being able to host ‘Wheel of Fortune’ on tour is such an honor and I can’t wait to watch so many people win!” Aiken said in the tour announcement.
What does the “Wheel of Fortune” tour include?
The tour announcement described “Wheel of Fortune Live!” as an “all-new theatrical experience” that “is the one-and-only way fans can experience America’s Game in person outside of Sony Pictures Studios.” The show is produced in partnership with Sony Pictures Television.
During each tour stop, attendees will have the opportunity to “audition to go on stage and feel like they stepped into the game show itself.”
Participants “will have the chance to spin a replica of the iconic Wheel and solve the puzzles on the tour’s puzzle-board” to win prizes such as $10,000, trips to Paris and Hawaii and more. Audience members may also be randomly selected to win cash and other prizes.
“Wheel of Fortune Live!” is a touring production and is not filmed for broadcast as part of the “Wheel of Fortune” show.
The tour will also include actress Kalpana Pot as a co-host, plus Los Angeles Dodgers stadium host and long-time radio personality Dave Styles as the show’s announcer.
