Renowned foodist and television personality Alton Brown will bring his Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour to Greenville in October.
The return of the show to cities throughout the U.S. comes on the heels of the successful inaugural run to 46 US cities. Over 100,000 tickets were sold for the Food Network star's show, featuring a pinch of comedy, talk show antics, a multimedia lecture, live music (he sings!) and a dash of "extreme" food experimentation (ponchos are provided for those in the first few rows), and of course...puppets.
Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour begins October 21, 2014 in Athens, Ga. and comes to Greenville's Peace Concert Hall on Oct. 22 before heading to additional cities including New York City, Seattle, Washington DC and Dallas.
"We have combined science, music, food, and a few other things no one in their right mind would allow me to do on TV, into a two hour extravaganza that's fun for the whole family," says Brown. He has been cultivating the show's material for about a decade and wrote most of the musical numbers which all take a comedic look at food.
Brown, author of seven books including the James Beard award winning "I'm Just Here for the Food" and New York Times bestselling sequence "Good Eats," has hosted numerous food series including "Iron Chef America."
He currently serves as host on the game show "Cutthroat Kitchen" and as a mentor/judge on "Food Network Star," which premiers its 10th season on June 1st.
Brown created, produced, and hosted the Peabody award winning series "Good Eats" for 13 years on Food Network, which still can be seen on the Cooking Channel.
