Mythbusters add second show in Raleigh

On the Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters," Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage use science to test out urban legends and other myths.

They have tested them all:

  • Is the saying "Bull in a China shop" really accurate? (No.) 
  • Is it possible to teach an old dog new tricks? (Yes!) 
  • Can vodka remove the smell of smoke in fabric? (Kind of) 

Now, fans can get involved in the action when the “MythBusters Behind the Myths" tour stops at the Progress Energy Center on March 25. The show will include audience participation, videos and behind-the-scenes stories.

Interest in the 7 p.m. show was so great that they've added at 3 p.m. show. 

Tickets are on sale now and range from $29.50 to $150.

Sounds like a fun night! 

For parents: The show is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages. But it is two-hours long. 

Check out the trailer:

    Its Adam Savage.. not Adam Salvage.

    Even if you are BIll Gates, this is still too expensive for these two. No thanks. We will stick to the TV show. I pay enough for that already.

    Took my son and 2 friends to see them when they came to Dean Dome last year. The show was short, they took few questions from pre-selected (AKA kids whose families paid the $150 prices) audience members, played some "never before seen" clips,and off to the airport they went. Save your money and watch them on TV like we will be doing this year.

    While I'd love to see the show and would probably be entertained, but the hit on my wallet just doesn't make it worth it. I'll watch the show from the comfort of my home and where I won't have to take out a loan to get a beverage.

    Sounds like a blast (literally), but the ticket prices are way too high for this lowly state worker.
