'The Price is Right' live tour coming to Westchester County Center
Hudson Valley, come on down! “The Price is Right” live tour will make a stop at the Westchester County Center on May 29 (198 Central Ave., White Plains; 914-995-4050; wmconcerts.com). If you want to have the game show experience without traveling to Hollywood, tickets for the event go on sale next week.
“The Price is Right” is crisscrossing the country to commemorate the iconic game show’s 40th year on television (the show premiered in September 1972 on CBS with Bob Barker as host). Drew Carey is the new TV host, but the touring version features TV personality Todd Newton as host and the event allows fans to take part in classic "Price" games such as Plinko, the Big Wheel and the Showcase Showdown.
Tickets are available for presale from Wednesday, April 3, through Friday, April 5, with the presale code “PRICE29”. Tickets are officially on sale Saturday, April 6, and can be bought for $49.50, $59.50 or $89.50 for the VIP package, which includes preferred seating in the first 10 rows, a complimentary T-shirt and free parking.
It isn’t the first time “The Price is Right” has come to Westchester County. In August, the show staged auditions for contestants at Empire City Casino in Yonkers.
