NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Internationally renowned best-selling author, television host and multiple Emmy-award winner Anthony Bourdain today announced a 10-city United States tour launching July 7 in Nashville. Cities and ticketing details are available at www.AnthonyBourdainOnTour.com. “Close to the Bone” serves audiences an all new live show featuring an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and his travels to lesser-known locations around the world, followed by an open Q&A session. Currently filming the hit CNN original series Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown (season five premieres Sunday, April 26. 9pm ET/PT), Bourdain brings audiences a menu loaded with lots of laughs, serious discussions and unapologetic irreverence. Tickets are on-sale to the general public April 17.
“I want to open the book on what I’ve learned seeking the road UN-traveled – more than I get to show you on television,” says Bourdain. The Peabody Award winner, known for getting the most out of his interview subjects who often reveal deep insights to him about local food, culture and their homeland, will have no shortage of stories and unfettered opinions to share with his audiences.
Bourdain is the author of the bestselling Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly, a candid, hysterical, and sometimes shocking portrait of life in restaurant kitchens that has been translated into more than 28 languages – as well as the travel journal, A Cook’s Tour, the non-fiction Medium Raw, three crime novels, a cookbook, a biography of Typhoid Mary, the bestselling graphic novel Get Jiro!, and others. The sequel to Get Jiro!, entitled Get Jiro: Blood and Sushi, will be published in October 2015.
