ALTON BROWN COOKS UP NEW LIVE SHOW IN 2016
Tickets On Sale Now
Television personality, author and Food Network star Alton Brown, who created a new form of live entertainment with his first live culinary variety show – today announced details for the all new “Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” (www.altonbrownlive.com) tour. Beginning in April 2016, the new live show will visit 40 U.S. cities including Detroit’s Fox Theatre on Friday, May 6 at 8 p.m. Brown first visited the Fox Theatre on his “Edible Inevitable” tour in 2013. The North American tour was a huge success over two years and 100 cities with more than 150,000 fans in attendance. With “Eat Your Science,” fans can expect more comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations and music (yes, he sings) but Brown is adding a slew of fresh ingredients including new puppets, songs, bigger and potentially more dangerous experiments and what every cook needs in his kitchen: FIRE.
Tickets ($35, $45, $65 and $100 premium seats) go on sale Friday, October 9 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at OlympiaEntertainment.com, The Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena box offices, Hockeytown Authentics in Troy (without service charge) at all Ticketmaster locations and Ticketmaster.com. To charge tickets by phone, call (800) 745-3000. The premium seats include an exclusive merchandise item that will be available to patrons on the day of the performance. Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more by calling 313-471-3099. For additional information, call (313) 471-6611.
Critics and fans have raved about the interactive component where Brown invites audience members on stage to serve as his assistant. “There will be plenty of new therapy inducing opportunities during our audience participation segments. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’re also going to play a little game with the audience,” says Brown.
Brown has a knack for mixing together a perfect base of science, music and food into two hours of pure entertainment. “Plus, you’ll see things that I was never allowed to do on TV.” He also says larger and more protective ponchos will be provided to the first few rows as his experiments have the potential to get messy.
Brown, author of the James Beard award winning “I’m Just Here for the Food” and New York Times bestselling sequence “Good Eats,” is releasing the first of two new cookbooks through Ballantine Books (an imprint of Random House) in the Fall of 2016. “Alton Brown: Every Day Cook,” or EDC as Brown calls it, is a collection of more than 100 personal recipes as well as a pinch of science and history. He has hosted numerous series including “Cutthroat Kitchen,” “Camp Cutthroat” and “Iron Chef America” and created, produced and hosted the Peabody award winning series “Good Eats” for 13 years on Food Network; Good Eats can still be seen on the Cooking Channel and Netflix.
