A Heat Tour? (Maybe)

After talking to a few folks, and reading the fan club facebook page, it is looking like we are getting closer to making this a reality. I have heard that some of the original cast members may also be involved with the first tour in over 20 years. Personally I see this as a great sign for fans all over “Heat Nation”. I’m sure that the coming months they will have more information and maybe a planned date for this tour.

Go Covington posted this to the fan club: Hey Heat fans! With the recent buzz about the “In the Heat of the Night” Tour, we want to know, what would be your number one must-see location on this tour?”

It’s great to get the fans involved, I can’t wait to save the date(s) that they are going to host this. So make sure you keep up with whats going on either here or on the fan club page.

There should be a little more added than just the tour in my book, maybe make it a weekend event where heat fans could take the tour, maybe a meet and greet with some of the cast members & maybe even a mock up skit with some of the cast and fans taking part.

But I will leave the planning up to them, I going to wait till my calendar has a mark in it to head to Covington.

Remember to keep up with the site, as there is always more content going up, you never know what you might come across in the future.
