UPDATE 8/14/2011: Tickets go on sale on Ticketmaster 8/18/2011. Details here.
There’ve been rumors flying around the last few days that Anthony Bourdain is bringing his No Reservations: An Evening with Anthony Bourdain to Asheville.
Here’s what happened:
Anthony Bourdain (or his “people”) jumped the gun and announced that he’d be at Asheville’s Thomas Wolf Auditorium on November 5th, from 8:00 – 10:00pm before things had been finalized with the Asheville Civic Center (Thomas Wolf).
An authority at the Civic Center told me today that Bourdain’s representatives apologized for the slip, saying that doesn’t usually happen, and they’d get all the details finalized this week so tickets can go on sale.
This same authority also said that judging by the number of calls she’s fielded in the last 24 hours, tickets are going to go fast. When asked how much the tickets were going to be, she said that was part of what was going to be finalized this week.
Want to go? Watch the Civic Center’s Upcoming Events listing and be ready to pounce. Those tickets are going to sell out in a flash!
You can read about the event on Bourdain’s Facebook Event Page.
Bourdain is on tour. He’ll be in Ohio the night before he’s in Asheville. Kristin Lubben, of Chris’ Cosmic Kitchen, saw Bourdain’s No Reservations November, 201 appearance in Raleigh and wrote a completely touching account of her feelings about Bourdain and seeing him in person: One Word. Bourdain.
