Alton Brown's national tour will bring him back to Baltimore

The last time we saw Alton Brown in Baltimore was March 2011, when the Food Network star was the headliner for the Foodie Experience event at the Hippodrome.

Brown's coming back to Baltimore, as part of a 40-city national tour that begins October in Palm Desert, Calif. Alton Brown Live! The Edible Inevitable Tour makes its way here on Feb. 22, 2014, when Brown will appear at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric.

The shows, according to a press release, will involve a multimedia lecture, stand-up comedy, live music (apparently, Brown sings) and an "extreme" food experimentation.

Ponchos, the press release says, will be provided for fans in the first few rows.

The Peabody Award-winning host of the Food Network's "Good Eats" was a judge on the most recent cycle of "Food Network Star," which featured a memorable second-place run by Baltimore's Rodney Henry.

There's no word from the show's producers on whether Henry will be invited to join Brown for a "Food Network Star" reunion.

Tickets are range from $35 to $150.

Brown takes the Lyric stage at 8 p.m. Feb. 22. Tickets are on sale at the Lyric box office and Ticketmaster (410-547-7328 and ticketmaster.com)
