“Wheel of Fortune” is embarking on its first-ever live tour. “The Wheel of Fortune Live!” is set to travel across North America on a 60+ date tour starting September 8, giving fans a unique experience of the hugely popular game show.
The tour is produced by Right Angle Entertainment in partnership with Sony Pictures Television and UTA. Participants will have the chance to spin a replica of the iconic “Wheel of Fortune” wheel and solve the puzzles on the tour’s puzzle board to win prizes including $10,000, or trips to Paris and in Hawaii, among others. Plus, other audience members will be randomly selected to win cash and prizes.
“This partnership with Right Angle provides an opportunity to expand our reach to bring more people a live experience that’s as close to the TV show as possible without actually being in the studio,” said Suzanne Prete, Executive Vice President, Game Shows. for Sony Pictures Television. “We look forward to bringing this incredible local immersive experience to people who might not otherwise travel to Los Angeles to be on set with Pat and Vanna.”
“Wheel of Fortune,” one of the longest-running syndicated game shows on American television, debuted in 1975. The show is currently in its 39th season and is hosted by Pat Sajak, starring Vanna White. The show also spawned the “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” primetime edition on ABC.
“Partnering with Sony to take America’s Game on the road for the first time is an honor for Right Angle,” said Justin Sudds, co-founder of Right Angle Entertainment. “This game has a fan base that spans generations and we can’t wait to bring it to theaters across North America, giving fans the chance to live out the dream of spinning the wheel and to win big on stage!”
Tickets for the live show start at $29.50. The presale begins May 17 at 12 a.m. PT and the general sale opens May 20 at 10 a.m. local time. VIP packages will give fans early access, preview seats, pre-show lounge access and photo opportunities to spin the wheel.
