As the city known for its bachelorettes, it was only a matter of time Nashville attracted a bachelor, or in this case, The Bachelor Live on Stage — coming to TPAC’s Jackson Hall May 2.
For the first time, Nashville fans can become part of the search for love with co-hosts Becca Kufrin and Ben Higgins fitting an entire season of The Bachelor into one enchanted evening.
Eligible and interested audience members will have the opportunity to experience love in their own community, complete with the show’s infamous rose ceremonies.
According to co-host Kuffrin, the live show brings all the best parts of the television show right into the theater you’re watching it.
“The Bachelor experience changed my life in the most amazing ways,” she says. “So, being able to visit cities around the country and allowing others to feel that unique energy, positivity, hope and love (fingers crossed) is something so truly special.”
Each stage show will introduce one lucky hometown bachelor to local ladies from the audience. Through a series of games, challenges, onstage dates and other fun get-to-know-you scenarios, the bachelor will hand the final rose to the woman with whom he’s most compatible.
Audience members will help along the journey by asking questions, making suggestions and cheering on the participants on stage. From the first impression rose to group date challenges and the coveted one-on-ones, the production gives fans the chance to watch live from their seats as the journey unfolds on stage.
The tour is the latest extension of the hit franchise, which already includes “The Bachelorette” and “Bachelor in Paradise” spin-offs, all produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted Television. “The Bachelor” television series heads into its 24th season on ABC and airs in 31 countries around the world.
For Kuffrin, this is a way to give back to the fans.
“Because of Bachelor Nation, I have shared myself and relationships, and all of the ups and downs, tears and smiles, heartbreak and happiness that came with it,” she says. “Now it’s time for others to share theirs as we kick off this ‘journey’ together!”
For Higgins, he’s just happy to be a part of it.
“Sharing the stage with one of the most beloved Bachelorettes is an honor,” says Higgins. “I am thrilled that Becca and I will be co-hosting this tour together!”
