The Bachelor is arguably one of the most popular reality TV franchises on television, and it's showing no signs of slowing down. The current season of The Bachelorette is still airing, meaning viewers can get their fix by tuning in to ABC on Mondays. Soon, however, The Bachelor will bring viewers a whole new way to experience the show they love with other super fans. The Bachelor Live on Stage is hitting the road this winter with beloved former Bachelor, Ben Higgins, at the helm. The show will bring a season's worth of drama in a single night, allowing fans to live out their Bachelor fantasies — rose ceremony and all. Although it's still a ways away, The Bachelor Live on Stage tour dates will give you something to look forward to after The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise come to an end this year.
The Bachelor Live on Stage will introduce handsome local bachelors to women looking for love, according to a release about the show. Forget endless swiping on Tinder. The show will bring the cream of the crop to the forefront, and even get those potentially awkward first dates out of the way. Audience members will have the chance to participate (or watch from the comfort of their seats) as the bachelor in question gives out his first impression rose, participates in group date challenges, and even goes on a one-on-one with a lucky lady of his choosing, the release states.
Higgins will be there to guide said bachelor on his journey, and honestly... who better to drive the ship? The night may just end in lasting love — because as Bachelor Nation knows, anything could happen.
The show kicks off in February 2020 in Mesa, Arizona. The Bachelor Live on Stage will then travel around through North America, hopefully matching a few lucky bachelors and bachelorettes. Naturally, tickets are going to be in high demand, so be sure you get your hands on them for your city or a city near you.
