The F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre has announced its first in-person show since the COVID-19 shutdown.

Television personality, author and Food Network star Alton Brown will visit the Kirby Center on Feb. 25 with his show “Alton Brown Live — Beyond the Eats.”

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show are only available online at and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby member pre-sale will begin 10 a.m. Wednesday, and members can call 570-826-1100 to purchase tickets.

While this show will not be held until 2022, Kirby Center Artistic Director Anne Rodella said other in-person events also are being planned but have not yet been announced.

“We will have other new event announcements and some of those will happen before this show,” Rodella said.
