MythBusters coming to Abbotsford

MythBusters: Behind the Myths, starring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage will play at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

The all-new live show MythBusters: Behind the Myths, starring Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, co-hosts of the Emmy-nominated Discovery series MythBusters, will debut at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre for one performance only on March 17.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, Nov. 30 at noon.

MythBusters: Behind the Myths, presents an evening of on-stage experiments, audience participation, video and behind-the-scenes stories.  With this show, for the first time, fans join the hosts on stage and assist in their mind-blowing and mind-twisting approach to science.

The show will bring you face-to-face with the curious world of Hyneman and Savage as the duo match wits on stage with each other and members of the audience.

Last winter and spring, the show performed a 28-city national tour playing sold out performances all over the country. One of the Discovery Channel’s most highly regarded and watched series, MythBusters is now in its ninth season.  It mixes scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create its own signature style of explosive experimentation – and the supporting or de-bunking of urban myths that we live with day to day.

Hyneman and Savage have become spokespersons at large for applying science to real life – most recently as hosts of the Discovery Channel special iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World, and have appeared on numerous shows including Late Show with David Letterman, Good Morning America and many more.

The duo also serve as guest editors for Popular Mechanics and were featured on the cover of the September 2009 issue.  That same year, they were inducted as honorary members into Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society.

In 2010, Hyneman and Savage received the Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the Harvard Secular Society.

MythBusters: Behind the Myths takes place on March 17 at 8 p.m.

Tickets are available tomorrow at abbotsfordcentre.ca, the AESC box office, Abbotsford and matsqui recreation centres, Whatcom Wine and Spirits, Sevenoaks Shopping Centre (until Jan. 15) or by calling 1-866-977-2372.
