This contest is over! Congratulations to our winners: carolinajack and mjbullock (on Twitter).

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, the stars of Discovery's popular series MythBusters, will stop in Raleigh for two shows this month.

The duo, best known for their experiments to support or debunk urban myths, will perform at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., March 25, at Raleigh's Memorial Auditorium at the Progress Energy Center for Performing Arts.

Says a press release on the show, which is very popular with families: “MythBusters: Behind the Myths,” promises to be a fantastical evening of on-stage experiments, audience participation, rocking video and behind-the-scenes stories. For the first time ever, fans will join Jamie and Adam on stage and assist in their mind-blowing and mind-twisting approach to science."

Tickets start at $29.50 and are on sale now through the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts Box Office and Ticketmaster. Click here for details and more information about the show.

I have two family four packs to the 3 p.m., March 25, show to give away!
