Chris Tucker Announces His First Standup Tour in More Than a Decade
It looks like Chris Tucker is making a major comeback!
The comedian is set to go on his first stand up tour in over a decade.
The Legends Tour will see Chris Tucker, 51, embark on a 30-date trek across the country kicking off on September 8 in Charleston, South Carolina and will bring him to cities like Memphis, Oakland, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Baltimore, Houston, New York and Chicago before closing out in in Detroit in January 2024.
This marks the actors first nationwide tour since 2011.
Chris Tucker said in a statement:
“I started my career doing stand-up in comedy clubs and it’s stand-up comedy that prepared me for all of my movie roles. I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots. I love performing live, there’s nothing like the energy of a live crowd and making people laugh. I’m excited to be back out on tour.”
Chris Tucker first launched his career as a stand up comedian. He then turned his talents to acting becoming a box office star in the late-1990s and early-2000s. He’s best known for his roles in Friday, The Fifth Element, Jackie Brown, Dead Presidents, and the Rush Hour trilogy.
While he’s had a successful career, Tucker has been seemingly missing from Hollywood in recent years, only appearing in three films in the past 15 years: 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook, 2016’s Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, and, most recently, 2023’s Air.
Tickets for The Legends Tour go on sale Friday, August 11, on Ticketmaster.
