Chris Rock is finally touring again (and he's coming to Minnesota)

Chris Rock says he's been a little busy writing Pootie Tang 3.
Publish date:

It's been a long time since Minnesota has gotten to see Chris Rock stand-up in person.

But that drought ends early next year, when the 51-year-old performs at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis on March 10.

Update: Rock just added shows on March 11 and March 12 too.

Rock announced a bunch of new dates Tuesday morning for his Total Blackout tour. It's his first comedy tour in nine years, and he teased it Monday night with a Facebook video.

A Big Announcement...

"First time in nine years, OK? Haven't done it in awhile. Been a little busy. You know, writing Pootie Tang 3 and everything. But hey, it's time, OK," he says in the video.

He's got all new material ready, too.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 7 (that's Wednesday) for a presale at 10 a.m. for LiveNation and Citi card peoples. General public sale starts Friday at 10 a.m.

The price is $49.50-$125.00.
