HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The cast and crew of NBC's TODAY show are leaving New York and going on ‘American Adventure,' and the first stop for Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Al Roker and Company involves sun, sand and surf… Right here in Hawaii.

On Monday, the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki will play host to the show as they broadcast live between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Hawaii time, in order to account for the time difference between Honolulu and the East Coast.

Complete details on how to attend the live broadcast in Waikiki can be found here on the TODAY show's Facebook event page.

Special guests for the three hour broadcast are scheduled to include musicians Jack Johnson and Jake Shimabukuro, and the crew plans on filming excursions to places like Pearl Harbor that will air live during the show.

To address concerns about spectators and parking availability, hotel executives released the following statement:

"While viewing of the filming locations on The Royal Hawaiian property are reserved exclusively for guests of the resort, the public is more than welcome to enjoy the Today Show's primary broadcast setting on Waikiki Beach fronting the property from 1 – 4 a.m. on May 20. As the resort will be closed for access at this time, spectators may walk through the public beach access located between The Royal Hawaiian and Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach. Parking in the Sheraton Waikiki parking lot will be available, however, normal parking rates will apply as The Royal Hawaiian and Sheraton Waikiki will not validate tickets for attendance at this event."

After TODAY departs Hawaii, they'll broadcast from Yellowstone National Park on Tuesday before finishing the rest of the week in Chicago on Wednesday, Orlando on Thursday, and New Jersey on Friday.
