Best I can do is irreverent excitement. The smash hit reality show “Pawn Stars,” a History Channel staple that documents the operations of a Las Vegas pawn shop, is bringing the show to the Tampa area this month. The show’s spinoff, “Pawn Stars Do America,” is currently touring the country in search of valuable collectibles and historical finds. We are filled to the brim with gems with our huge array of antique shops and vintage markets.
Filming for the show will take place in an undisclosed location in neighboring downtown St. Petersburg for six days, on April 5-7 and April 11-13. Free tickets to attend the live taping are available online. Fans of the show will have the opportunity to observe the “Pawn Stars” team at work and witness the show being filmed during their stay in the city. According to the History Channel website, Rick Harrison, Austin “Chumlee” Russell, and Corey Harrison will explore fourteen different cities across the country to seek out unique and intriguing items.
Those lucky enough to secure a spot may find their visage on national television. Whether we make it into the show or not, we definitely want to see what treasures are presented to the Pawn Stars crew when they’re in town.
Here’s the official release from History Channel: For the first time, the “Pawn Stars” are hitting the road to visit some of America’s most exciting places in search of historical finds and impressive collectible objects in the new 8-part series “Pawn Stars Do America.” Each two-hour episode follows Rick Harrison, Corey Harrison and Austin “Chumlee” Russell as they step out of the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas to connect with fans in eight different cities and acquire some of the most remarkable items imaginable.
