Anthony Bourdain is taking his travel insights from TV to a live stage this summer.

The host of Parts Unknown will launch a U.S. tour during which he’ll share more insights and stories about the culture, street cuisine and relationships displayed on the show.

“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,” Bourdain said in a statement.

We expect he’ll also pull from his experiences as previous host of Travel Channel’s No Reservations, which ran for eight seasons.

He’ll take the stage alone and open up the event to questions.

The tour, “Close to the Bone,” will take place in just 10 cities including Nashville, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland and Chicago.

The fifth season of Parts Unknown will begin April 26. The series was nominated for seven Emmy Awards in 2014 and won one for outstanding informational series or special. It won its first two Emmy Awards in 2013.
