Guy Fieri on TV, OK. But Guy Fieri in concert?!?!?

Food Network personality Guy Fieri is hitting the road -- not for dives, but for concert halls.

The Guy Fieri Road Show is part cooking demonstration, part concert, and kicks off Tuesday for 30 days and 21 stops complete with a food demo, a deejay – L.A.’s DJ Cobra -- and an on-stage mixologist to attend to, among other things, a six-foot-tall, 25-gallon margarita. Fieri pulls up to the Gibson Amphitheater on Dec. 17 and Las Vegas on Dec. 19.

It’s not just the concept that screams rock star. The higher-end ticket prices do too: At the Gibson, prices start at $18.95 and top out at $250 per person for the "Off Da Hook" package that includes stage seating and a chance to sample what Fieri is cooking and some of that margaritaville. Tickets for the Guy Fieri Road Show went on sale in September, and so far, according to his website, no venue has sold out. Has the host of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives," who enraptures audiences while he tries one decadent dish after another, bitten off more than he can chew? Click here to find out what Guy has to say.
