Come on down! ‘The Price is Right Live’ is coming to Burlington
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Are you ready to come on down? You could be the next contestant on “The Price is Right Live” road show, which is coming to the Flynn in Burlington on Sept. 26.
If you’re a regular watcher of Channel 3, you’ve seen the long-running game show right before our noon news. But you might not have realized there’s a traveling version, too, that brings the show to people who might not be able to see it otherwise.
“The Price is Right Live” host Todd Newton says the traveling show should look very familiar to fans of the TV show.
“It’s the same games you’ve seen on television for over 50 years. Plinko and Cliffhangers and the Big Wheel and the showcase. The prizes are the same cars, cash, kitchen appliances, fabulous vacations. The differences are few in that we give more people the opportunity to come on down and play and get the contestants than they do on television,” Newton said.
Newton said the recent passing of longtime “The Price is Right” host Bob Barker at the age of 99 makes him reflect on the fact that without Barker, the traveling show wouldn’t exist either.
