Anthony Bourdain will bring his GUTS AND GLORY tour to Los Angeles this spring .

Bourdain will be joined on stage by local celebrity chef, author and entrepreneur Roy Choi as they spend the evening sharing candid, often hysterical insights about their life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 16 at 10:00am. Ticket prices start at $35. Tickets will be available online at BroadwayLA.org , by phone at 800-982-2787, , or in person at the Pantages Box Office (open daily at 10:00am, except holidays).

Bourdain, chef-at-large at New York’s famed Brasserie Les Halles, is the author of bestselling titles Kitchen Confidential and Medium Raw – both hilariously blunt and sometimes shocking portraits of life in restaurant kitchens. His latest project Get JIRO!, a culinary-themed graphic novel, was released on July 3 and quickly reached the #1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list. His 2001 travel journal A Cook’s Tour was also a bestseller in the US and UK.
In addition to hosting Travel Channel’s Emmy Award-winning No Reservations and The Layover, Bourdain will serve as host for two new television shows premiering in 2013: The Taste, a cooking competition series for ABC, and a docu-series for CNN, expanding the network’s coverage of travel, culture and cuisine.
Classically trained chef Roy Choi has always thought outside the box. With a pedigree including the Culinary Institute of America, Le Bernardin, and the Beverly Hilton, at first Choi might have seemed an unlikely candidate to take to the streets in a food truck. However, this bold decision to bring gourmet cuisine to the masses is precisely what has garnered him passionate praise from food press and the public ever since.
A limited number of VIP tickets will be available, which include: premier seating, a limited edition tour poster and VIP laminate, and exclusive access to a post-show meet and greet reception featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres and photo and signing opportunities with Anthony Bourdain and Roy Choi.
Copies of Bourdain’s books will be available for purchase on-site from Book Soup, the show’s Official Bookstore Sponsor.
