Anthony Bourdain's "Guts and Glory" Tickets Go On Sale Friday

Here’s the official rap: Tickets go on sale Friday morning at 10 a.m. for Anthony Bourdain's Guts and Glory tour, which is coming to the Orpheum on November 2. Now here’s the insider buzz: You can buy your tickets right now by going to Ticketmaster and entering the not-so-secret code: TONY. Or you can call 800-745-3000, and you’ll probably need the same password.


Tickets range in price from $45 to $55, according to the press release from Innovation Arts & Entertainment. The press release also explains the tour like this: “Bourdain will spend the evening sharing candid, often hysterical insights about his life’s work and travels, including an open question and answer session with the audience.” For more information on the tour, click on


The likeable host of the Travel Channel's "No Reservations," Bourdain hardly needs any further explanation, especially if you are still reading this post. Personally, I’m a big fan because Bourdain is sexy and irreverent. And he knows his food. I wish he was still as irreverent as he used to be, but hey. Two out of three ain’t bad.


Here’s another reason I love Bourdain. He’s a comic geek. Last month, he released a culinary-themed graphic novel about a sushi-chef super-hero called Get Jiro! I have a heartfelt love for young cartoonists, so I appreciated Bourdain’s embrace of the graphic novel format.


Now back to those tickets. I just bought three $55 tickets, and it cost $197. (Ticketmaster tacked on more than $30 in fees. I hate that.) Anyway, if you're a bigger spender, you can purchase VIP tickets for the best seats, a limited edition tour poster and participation in a post-show meet-and-greet reception with Bourdain featuring complimentary hors d’oeuvres from the Majestic Grille and beer from Ghost River. Bourdain's books (and tour tickets) also are on sale at The Booksellers at Laurelwood.
