Deen is also planning on unveiling thirteen more dates later this week, with tickets for all shows to go on sale on May 1st.

Of the gig, which is said to include storytelling, cooking demonstrations and plenty of audience participation, Paula told the Miami New Times, “We are going to play musical chairs and the dating game with the audience. That’s the excitement of it all — my fans get to be part of the show.”
