Actor/comedian Chris Rock will soon hit the road for his first tour in nine years.
In a Facebook Live video uploaded this week from Los Angeles’ Comedy Store, Rock announced the Total Blackout Tour.
“I, Christopher Julius Rock, have an important announcement to make tonight,” Chris Rock said in the video. “Tonight I am announcing that I, Chris Rock, am going on tour. That’s right. The Total Blackout Tour is coming to your town in 2017. That’s right. 2017, Total Blackout Tour. World tour. First time in nine years. Haven’t done it in a while. Been a little busy. Writing Pootie Tang 3 and everything. But hey, it’s time.”
The funnyman went on to inform those watching that the Total Blackout Tour will boast “all new material.”
News of Rock’s new stand-up tour comes weeks after it was revealed that he signed off on a deal with Netflix for $40 million for two brand new comedy specials.
It has yet to be revealed if either of Rock’s Netflix specials will include material from his Total Blackout Tour.
