Food Network host Alton Brown has announced the return of his tour, Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour. According to a press release (below), the tour will begin October 21, in Athens, Georgia and will feature over 40 shows across dates in October, November. February, and March. There's a full list of stops on the tour's website and it includes cities like Boston, Cleveland, Vancouver, Seattle, Dallas, and New York City. The website notes that more cities will be announced soon.
The show features comedy, "talk show antics," a multimedia lecture, live music where Brown sings, puppets, and something called "'extreme' food experimentation" that requires the first few rows of audience members to don ponchos. The two hour show is also interactive and Brown will invite members of audience on stage to "serve as his assistant." The first run of the tour hit 46 cities across the U.S and over 100,000 tickets were sold. Here's a look at what the show looked like last time around. Tickets for the October 21 show in Athens are on sale now. See the press release and tour dates:

"We have combined science, music, food, and a few other things no one in his right mind would allow me to do on TV, into a two hour extravaganza that's fun for the whole family"
"We have combined science, music, food, and a few other things no one in his 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.
