Food Network Star Guy Fieri Rock n' Rolls into Town

Categories: Events

Food Network star Guy Fieri is taking his show -- and his rock and roll attitude -- on the road with The Guy Fieri Road Show, a 21-city tour that combines Guy's love of music and his passion for food. The tour will hit the Mesa Arts Center on Friday, December 18, with tickets ranging from $38-248.

"My shows have never been normal," Guy said in a phone call on the way to the tour's first stop in New England. "One of the things I'm jonesing for is music. So I thought, 'why don't we take this on the road, hang out and talk about food you love'."

The tattooed, spiky-haired chef was a relative unknown until he beat Reggie Southerland to win the second season of The Next Food Network Star in 2006. He went on to host three Food Network shows: Guy's Big Bite, Guy Off the Hook and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, the latter of which spawned two bestselling books.

Each roadshow will begin with a cooking demo from a local chef. Arizona's pick is Chef John Conley of Salsa Brava in Flagstaff (strange that they didn't select Matt Pool, who was also featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives). There will also be a margarita building showcase with Australian flairtender Hayden "Woody" Wood and audience Q&A with Guy. "There's no way it will be the same show twice. It's so run by the audience that it will be different in each city," says Guy. 

A big part of the show is the music Guy culled from his stock of 5,000+ tunes. He's hoping his soundtrack will inspire the audience to get up and dance -- even if he doesn't bust a move himself. "I don't know if you can call what [I do] dancing," he quips. "People might think I'm having an issue or something."

He'll just stick to the food, and leave the dancing to you.
