Des Moines Performing Arts is pleased to welcome ALTON BROWN LIVE! THE EDIBLE INEVITABLE to the Des Moines Civic Center on Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets to ALTON BROWN LIVE! THE EDIBLE INEVITABLE TOUR will be on sale June 6 at DesMoinesPerformingArts.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, all Ticketmaster locations and charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000.

Renowned foodist and television personality Alton Brown recently announced the return of the ALTON BROWN LIVE! THE EDIBLE INEVITABLE TOUR, 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.  Enthusiastic fans and critics have raved about the interactive component where Brown invites audience members on stage to serve as his assistant.

“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 premieres 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.
