Big-name comedian Chris Rock will be performing his first stand-up tour in nine years, The Total Blackout Tour 2017, in Richmond. Rock performs at the Altria Theater on Sunday, March 5 at 7:30 p.m.
Rock first gained a level of fame for his show, "The Chris Rock Show," which featured the writing talents of Richmond native Bryan Tucker, now co-head writer at "Saturday Night Live."
Tickets for the Rock show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9 at the Altria Theater and Dominion Arts Center box offices, by phone at (800) 514-3849 and at Livenation.com and etix.com. Tickets range from $49.50 to $125 plus applicable fees.
Rock recently earned $40 million for a pair of upcoming Netflix comedy specials, so he should be in a good mood. The American leg of the world tour kicks off in Durham, NC.
