Tent On Traveling Tent Show The Grand Tour Will No Longer Travel

The whole point of Amazon’s The Grand Tour was to have a big traveling tent as the show’s studio, was it not? That’s what was supposed to make it different from The Show That Must Not Be Named, right? Well, for The Grand Tour’s upcoming second season, it seems that the tent will not be, er, touring.

The reasoning, per an official emailed announcement is:

Given the show’s presenter’s sore joints, struggling lungs and combined age of 158, the studio tent has been given a new home in a charming location in the Cotswolds, UK.


So, instead of them coming to you, you can go to them. You can apply for studio recording tickets here. The application closes at midnight BST on Tuesday, Oct. 3.

But don’t worry, they’ll still travel plenty for other segments of the show. Locations include Croatia, Mozambique, Dubai, Spain, Switzerland and the ultra-exotic Colorado and New York.

Sounds like it’ll be a slick show, for sure. With real budgets and currency people actually accept and stuff. Money to hire the stars. But you know what else that does? It puts The Grand Tour out of touch with the people. The ones who actually matter.


I wonder when someone will make a car show for The People. Oh, wait.
