Chris Rock Announces First Stand-up Tour in Nine Years

Chris Rock posted a live video to his Facebook page announcing his Total Blackout Tour for 2017. The U.S tour, which runs from February to June of next year, will visit cities all over the country, from Denver to Minneapolis to Tampa to Atlanta. Rock takes the title of his tour from a tweet he posted before his gig hosting the 2016 Oscars, in which he promised a #blackout in response to the famous #OscarsSoWhite controversy which surrounded this year’s ceremony.

The tour was first hinted at back in October, when Netflix announced that Rock was teaming with the company for two comedy specials (set to net the comedian a nice $20 million each), to be followed by a world tour.

Tickets for the Total Blackout Tour 2017 go on sale December 9 via Live Nation. The dates and venues are below:
