There’s something just über sexy about Anthony Bourdain, isn’t there? The 58-year-old chef has seen and done it all, and–luckily–lived to tell about it. Now fans can catch the No Reservations star off the boob tube and in the flesh, as he embarks on the “Close to the Bone” tour.

Kicking off on July 7 in Nashville at Jackson Hall, Bourdain will allegedly be speaking about life on the road, politics and, of course, food from around the world. Get your questions ready, because at the end of each lecture there will be a Q&A portion. The New York City-native recently spoke out in a press release about his reason for taking the stage: “I want to open the book on what I’ve learned seeking the road UN-traveled — more than I get to show you on television.”  The tour comes to a close on July 30 at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.
