“America’s Got Talent,” NBC’s hit television talent show from American Idol producers FremantleMedia North America and Simon Cowell’s SYCO Television, will launch its first ever nationwide tour this fall, bringing the country’s most dynamic and diverse entertainers to 25 cities beginning October 1st, and the second stop is Reno!
Hosted by Jerry Springer (nothing can go wrong when he’s running the show), the spectacular live stage version will feature the Season 5 winner, who will be crowned during the show’s season finale on September 15th. This phenomenal event, promoted by AEG Live, will also feature other dynamic finalists and fan favorites from the hit series.
Tickets to America’s Got Talent Live go on sale Friday, July 23rd at 10am and can be purchased via aeglive.com.
“America’s Got Talent has discovered some of the most amazing performers that this country has to offer,” said Debra Rathwell of AEG Live, in making the announcement. “We’re proud to have the opportunity to tour this unique and explosive live stage show.”
“After the huge success of both the television show and the live version of America’s Got Talent in Las Vegas hosted by Jerry Springer, we’re thrilled for another opportunity to bring fans closer to one of their favorite shows, in what is sure to be an amazing tour,” said Andy Felsher, Senior VP Entertainment, Games, and Live Events, FME.
America’s Got Talent returned this summer with the hottest performers from across the country competing in the blockbuster reality show’s fifth season. Bringing the variety show format back to the forefront of American culture each week, the show features a colorful array of hopeful future stars — singers, dancers, comedic performers and unique acts of all ages. While each contestant has the chance to strut and perform in front of a panel of celebrity judges including Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan, the eventual winner is chosen by the television viewing audience. Since launching in 2006, America’s Got Talent has been sold to over 100 countries, with localized versions of the hit format being produced in 24 countries around the world.
