The Price Is Right LIVE! is an American hotel/casino show based on the game show The Price Is Right.

The live stage shows are held at Harrah's Entertainment casinos, as well as the Foxwoodsmarker Resort & Casino in Connecticutmarker. The show also briefly ran at two Atlantic Citymarker casinos in 2005 and 2006. They are produced in association with RTL Group officials, including former television show producer Roger Dobkowitz and others who have worked on the TV version of The Price Is Right and other game shows. Audience members for each show are asked a series of pricing questions. It is the top scorers in both accuracy and speed that "come on down" to play pricing games. In some venues, this involves the use of audience response keypads (also used in other game shows, including RTL-Harrah's production Family Feud Live), while in others a pricing game is played at registration prior to the show. Unlike on the television show, an entirely new set of contestants is chosen to bid on each One-Bid item and participate in the Showcase Showdown and Showcase.

Several pricing games and other elements of the television show have been replicated for the live show, such as Cliff Hangers, Clock Game, Hole in One, Race Game, Plinko, It's in the Bag, and the Big Wheel. However, pricing games and Showcases are played for lower stakes and smaller prizes than on the TV version. Also, contestants must pay an admission fee to participate, unlike the television series, which is free to attend.

Todd Newton is the regular host of the current Las Vegas production and also kicked off the show's Fall 2008 run at Foxwoods. A new set of shows began in October 2009 at Foxwoods, hosted by Alan Thicke. Other hosts have included Marc Summers, George Hamilton, Doug Davidson, David Ruprecht, Bob Goen, J.D. Roberto, Roger Lodge, Mark L. Walberg, Michael Burger, Chuck Woolery, and Marco Antonio Regil who have all hosted in other locations and substituted for Newton.

Announcers for the show include Randy West (who was the regular Las Vegas announcer for several years), Daniel Rosen, Dave Walls, and others.

Newton, Summers, Regil, Davidson, and Hamilton were contenders to replace Bob Barker, a job that ultimately went to Drew Carey. Davidson was also the host of a short-lived syndicated spinoff of the show known as The New Price Is Right, which ran for four months in 1994. Regil, who is bilingual, also hosted the Mexican (Spanish language) version of the show (Atinale al Precio) from 1997-1999.
