Photo by rockmixer

On Friday, December 11, from 10am to 5pm, Ryan Buell and Sergey Poberezhny from Paranormal State’s hit series Paranormal State will be ending their ten city “Paranormal State Tour” right here in Madison Square Park, next to the Shake Shack.

Here are the details from the press release:

A&E’s hit series “Paranormal State” will kick-off a search for America’s most compelling paranormal experiences with a 10 city nationwide tour beginning in San Francisco on Monday, November 30 and ending in New York City on Friday, December 11. The series star, and founder of the renowned Paranormal Research Society (PRS), Ryan Buell is issuing a call-to-action and traveling across the country to invite America to share their own paranormal experiences with him personally. The most compelling stories will have a chance to be featured on future episodes of “Paranormal State”.

“Paranormal research has always been a passion of mine,” said Buell. “Since the launch of our A&E series, we’ve been getting thousands of calls from people wanting us to investigate their homes. Although we’d love to, we can’t possibly visit everyone. This is our effort to cover more territory, talk to more people and ultimately find answers to the unexplainable.”

Buell, and his right-hand tech specialist and PRS team member Sergey Poberezhny, will travel coast-to-coast in a branded “Paranormal State” tour bus, taking the show on the road and visiting fans in popular U.S. destinations to gather first-hand accounts of the supernatural. The best stories will be profiled on the tour’s interactive website, which aims to provide fans and enthusiasts further topics of debate concerning the paranormal.

The “Paranormal State” tour will travel through 10 major U.S. cities in 14 days, each city will have the team on-site for one day at key locations, often with a story of its own to tell. Beginning November 20, fans can log on to the interactive “Paranormal State” tour site and join the official “Paranormal State” Facebook Fan Page and Twitter feeds, all in advance of the tour. Throughout the tour fans can come to the tour location to meet Ryan, be videotaped on the tour bus sharing their paranormal stories, create a photo of themselves as a “paranormal investigator” to share with their friends, and receive “Paranormal State” branded giveaways. Fans not near a tour site can participate by submitting their stories online at A key feature online will allow fans to upload paranormal stories, which will then appear pinpointed on an interactive map, creating a real-time visual account of where in the U.S. paranormal activity occurs most.

The “Paranormal State” tour will travel to the following major U.S. cities and locations:

November 30, 2009 – San Francisco, CA – Embarcadero Center
December 1, 2009 – Los Angeles, CA – California State University, Fullerton

Founded by Buell in 2001, while a student at Penn State University, the PRS works on cases across the country and is one of the most recognized paranormal societies in the nation. A&E’s “Paranormal State” was one of the first shows of its kind following Ryan Buell and his team of investigators as they attempt to unravel inexplicable paranormal phenomena including sixth-sense experiences, ghost sightings, demonic disturbances, and brushes with the darkest areas of the unknown.

Past seasons have included cases such as a Pennsylvania couple besieged by paranormal activity in their home, an aggressive poltergeist in Maryland, and a ghostly hag nicknamed the “Lady Vampire” by the Texas family she torments. Through the use of Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings and video documentation, and with the help of renowned psychics, demonologists, psychologists and counselors, the PRS explores these bizarre cases in the hopes of helping frightened people who have nowhere else to turn.
