EAST LANSING, MI--Alton Brown, renowned foodist and television personality, recently announced details for his first national tour visiting more than 40 cities through 2014 including East Lansing's Wharton Center as part of the Live at Wharton Series for one performance only: November 1st at 8PM at the Cobb Great Hall. Tickets are on sale now and available online at, at the Auto-Owners Ticket Office at Wharton Center or by calling 1-800-WHARTON. 

Currently hosting Food Network's hit game show Cuthroat Kitchen, Brown will hit the road with "Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour," kicking off in Palm Desert October 18, 2013. Each show features stand-up comedy, talk show antics, a multimedia lecture, live music (he sings!) and "extreme" food experimentation. An interactive component invites select audience members on stage to serve as Brown's trusted assistants; ponchos will be provided for the fans in the first few rows. 

"This is a must-see extravaganza for the whole family," says Brown. "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. We've come up with some pretty amazing food demonstrations and multi-media segments," he says, "However, I'm a bit nervous about the singing parts."

Brown, an author of seven books, has served as the culinary commentator of Iron Chef America for 11 seasons, and host of The Next Iron Chef for five. He also joined Food Network Star in 2012, currently appearing in the show's ninth season. Brown wrote, produced and hosted the Peabody Award-winning series Good Eats for 13 years on Food Network, which can still be seen on the Cooking Channel.
