From a press release:

Chef, television personality, author, and Food Network star Alton Brown has announced that his tour “Alton Brown Live – Beyond the Eats” will visit the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Feb. 25, 2022.

Brown created a new form of entertainment – the live culinary variety show – with his “Edible Inevitable Tour” and “Eat Your Science,” which played in over 200 cities with more than 350,000 fans in attendance; the latter came to the Kirby Center in 2016 and the Hershey Theatre in 2017.

Brown says fans can expect “more cooking, more comedy, more music, and more potentially dangerous science stuff.” Critics and fans have raved about the interactive components of his shows. He warns, “Prepare for an evening unlike any other and if I call for volunteers… think twice.”

The 58-year-old “Good Eats” host has a knack for mixing together science, music, and food into two hours of pure entertainment. “Plus, you’ll see things I’ve never been allowed to do on TV.”

Doors at the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) will open at 6 p.m., and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, which are $49.50, $59.50, $69.50, and $150 (VIP experience), plus fees, go on sale this Friday, April 30 at 10 a.m.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, tickets are only available online at,, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins on Wednesday, April 28 at 10 a.m. Members can call 570-826-1100 to purchase tickets.

Alton Brown has been on the Food Network for over 20 years and is best known as the creator, writer, and host of “Good Eats,” “Good Eats: Reloaded,” and “Good Eats: The Return.” He also hosted “Cutthroat Kitchen” and served as the culinary commentator on “Iron Chef America.”

There are two James Beard Foundation Awards with Brown’s name on them in a drawer in his office, and somewhere in the world there’s a coveted Peabody awarded for “Good Eats” that was stolen out of his car back in 2013. In his spare time, he’s working on his ninth book on food and cooking.
