Alton Brown brings his food-science patter back to Charlotte in April.

The ever-popular Alton Brown will bring a new show, “Eat Your Science,” to 40 cities next year, including a Charlotte stop in April.

“Alton Brown Live: Eat Your Science” includes “comedy, talk show antics, multimedia presentations and music (yes, he sings),” and Brown also promises “bigger ponchos” for the first few rows -- his way of saying “expect it to be messy.”

The tour kicks off April 6 at the Gaillard Center in Charleston, and lands in Charlotte April 17 at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Other stops in the Carolinas include April 7 in Fayetteville, April 8 in Columbia and April 15 in Durham.

Brown, the host of numerous shows including “Good Eats,” has a new book coming out in fall 2016, “Alton Brown: Every Day Cook,” a collection of 100 of his personal recipes, along with a little science and history.

Tickets go on sale Oct. 9 and range from $20 to $124.40. Get on a mailing list for ticket information at www.altonbrownlive.com.
