Chris Rock has just announced that he is returning to the stage for the first time in nine years with the Total Blackout Tour 2017. The U.S tour, which runs from February to June of next year, will visit cities all over the country, from Denver to Minneapolis to Tampa to Atlanta. Somewhat surprisingly, the announced list of dates has nothing in California, and the closest thing to a New York show is the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ.

The tour was first hinted at back in October, when Netflix announced that Rock was teaming with the company for two comedy specials (set to net the comedian a nice $20 million each), to be followed by a world tour.

Rock announced the tour via Facebook Live:

Tickets for the Total Blackout Tour 2017 go on sale December 9 via Live Nation. The dates and venues are below:
