Update: Comedian Chris Rock Adds a Second Show at the State Theatre in April


[image-1]Update: Earlier this month, tickets went on sale for a Chris Rock show on April 19 at the State Theatre.

That concert, part of his first standup tour in nine years, has sold well enough that a second show has been added on April 20.

Tickets for both shows are on sale now.

Now, the multi-talented performer has just announced a return to live comedy with his all-new Total Blackout Tour 2017.

His first tour in more than nine years, it kicks off on Feb. 14 in Durham at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The tour includes an April 19 stop at the State Theatre. Tickets go on sale on Friday. Tickets can be purchased at playhousesquare.org and at LiveNation.com.
