Culinary hero and globetrotter Anthony Bourdain will be making a stop at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia this Fall for a live tour coinciding with the October publication of "Appetites: A Cookbook," the first Bourdain cookbook to be released in more than a decade.
The "Parts Unknown" and "The Layover" star will look to duplicate the success of last year's "Close to the Bone" live tour, which hit ten cities during the summer but did not make its way to Philadelphia.
According to Eater Philly, "The Hunger" is described as "an unyielding, brutally honest monologue reflecting on diverse culture, street cuisine and [Bourdain's] travels to lesser-known locations around the world, followed by an open Q&A session."
The new cookbook, meanwhile, will feature 60-year-old Bourdain's best selection of recipes for home-cooking, "written with the no-holds-barred, no-bulls--t-allowed ethos of his beloved series, Parts Unknown." The book, to be published by Ecco on October 25, can be pre-ordered at a sale price of $37.50.
As for "The Hunger," the live tour will begin in New York City on Oct. 7 and hit 14 other cities through Nov. 18, with additional dates pending requests.
Bourdain will hit Philadelphia's Academy of Music on Wednesday, October 26. Presale tickets will be available starting May 2. Today marks the last day that fans can obtain a presale code to purchase tickets before they go on sale to the general public on May 20.
