Food Network host Alton Brown, the latest person you can't easily imagine having a live show, is bringing his new live show to the Fox Theatre in St. Louis on Saturday, Feb. 1. Tickets go on sale June 7 for “Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour.”

Brown, host of "Iron Chef America" and a mentor on "Food Network Star," will headline a show that will feature "his trademark mix of quirky humor and culinary science."

The announcement says:

"Brown’s tour promises to be an eventful evening of stand-up comedy, talks show antics, multimedia lecture, live music and food experimentation. Be prepared. Ponchos will be involved." (What is this, a Gallagher concert?)

"The show will offer an interactive component in which audience members will have the opportunity to serve as Brown’s trusted assistants on stage. For those hoping to sip at the pure source of Brownian wit and wisdom, this is a must-see extravaganza for the whole family."

Brown says in the release: "I've been cultivating material for this show for about a decade so it'll feel pretty darned good to finally get it out of my head and onto a stage. I feel we've come up with some pretty amazing food demos, and the multimedia segments are solid ... but I do have to say I'm a bit nervous about the singing parts."

Tickets are $60.50, $50.50, $45.50 and $35.50, with a limited number of Gold Circle seats also available, the Fox says. They are available at the Fox Box Office, online at or by calling (314) 534-1111.
