Like everything Jonathan and Drew Scott do, this get-together promises to be warm, funny, informative and inspirational for do-it-yourselfers. The hosts of five TV series, all devoted to home renovation, say they want to do something different with their many fans,, and they’re rolling out this new concept for the first time July 22 at the Sacramento Community Center Theater. Tickets are on sale.
“We love (live appearances) with our fans,” Drew Scott said in a joint phone interview. “They love to hear all the stuff behind the scenes. So, we came up with the concept to do a live show.”
“We’ve been doing appearances for years; we love our fans,” Jonathan Scott said. “Sacramento is going to be our very first show; it’s going to be a packed house.”

Added Drew, “If we’re having a good time, we might stay there all night.”
The identical twins, who turned 39 on April 28, do more than fix up houses. They also sing and play guitar; recently, they’ve made some country music videos to go along with their many HGTV shows. During “The Scott Brothers House Party,” expect some songs to accompany their sibling jousting.
“There also will be plenty of laughs,” Drew said. “When people watch the shows, they think everything is perfect, that every project goes smoothly. We’ll share the disasters and lots of embarrassing stuff.”
And, of course, they’ll tackle some room renovations on the spot. They’re soliciting cases from fans, who can nominate their problem spaces online.
“Imagine Scott Brothers on steroids,” Drew said.
With their shows now cablecast in 150 countries, the Scotts get half a million messages a week from fans, Jonathan noted.
“We know fans have questions,” he added. “We expect to answer a lot of them (at the show).”
Born in Canada and based in Las Vegas, the brothers have been spending more time in California.
“We knew we wanted to start the tour in California,” Jonathan said. “Drew and his fiancée, Linda, just bought a house in Los Angeles, so we’ve been working on that.”
Drew’s Hancock Park house stars in the twins’ latest project, “Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House,” to air in November.
“We looked between Studio City and Beverly Hills,” Drew said of his house search. “There must have been 1,000 homes on the market in that area in our price range, but only 10 that were unadulterated. We wanted a house that we could restore to its original charm, and we found it in this home.”
Built in 1921, the two-story Tudor home will “retain its British-inspired architecture, but we’ll make it a truly modern home,” Drew added. “And it’s going to be absolutely gorgeous!”
So, a quick trip to Sacramento worked into their busy filming schedule. Besides Drew’s honeymoon project, they film almost constantly for their popular franchise.
“We’re doing five series right now,” Drew said. “That’s 50 full-blown renovations a year just for the shows.”
Jonathan estimated that they’ve renovated more than 350 homes on camera since launching “Property Brothers.”
“We filmed the pilot in 2009; it debuted in Canada in 2010 and in the U.S. in 2011,” Drew said. “Right from the beginning, our schedule has been go, go, go.”
If the “House Party” succeeds, a live national tour will add to that workload. But that’s OK with these busy brothers.
“I’m so excited,” Drew added. “Our fans are going to go crazy. They’ll love it.”
