Chris Rock just announced a stand-up tour for the first time in nine years. The tour, which will kick off in Durham, North Carolina, on Feb. 14, 2017, will be called Total Blackout.
The 51-year-old comedian took to Facebook Live on Dec. 5 to officially declare his return to the stage. "I'm going on tour, I'm coming to your town, I've got all-new material, I can't wait to see you," he says in the video.
The tour announcement comes just a few months after it was confirmed that Rock will be starring in two upcoming Netflix specials, the first he has done since 2008. Since taking some time off from stand-up, Rock has written, starred in and directed the 2014 film Top Five. He also directed the 2015 HBO special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo, hosted the 2016 Oscars and guest starred on a season three episode of Empire. Rock most recently appeared as a surprise guest on a Saturday Night Live Election night skit with Dave Chappelle.
