Chris Rock Tickets Skyrocket: Where to See Him in Michigan
Following "the slap heard around the world" you would think Chris Rock would have some PTSD coming to a state shaped like a hand, but he's coming to Michigan nevertheless...for three nights at that.
Chris Rock Sets Out on World Tour Three Days After Slap at the Oscars
We will start this off with a quick disclaimer: we are referencing the Oscars as the timing is quite funny and it is a trending pop culture moment. We are in no way taking on stance on the joke that caused the slap, nor the slap itself.
You've seen what happened at the Oscars so we really don't need to re-hash everything that led up to and followed Will Smith smacking Chris Rock at the Oscars.
While we have enjoyed the memes, social media has also been flooded with commentary from Rock's fellow comedians. Just two days after the incident at the Oscars, Adam Sandler not-so-subtly shared support for his "Grown-Ups" costar with a tweet about Rock's upcoming world tour:
Now, imagine my surprise when I, for one, did not even know Rock was going on a world tour (whoops) but also found out it was kicking off, just three days after the Oscars incident, on March 30th in Boston.
Chris Rock World Tour Ticket Sales Skyrocket
Of course with any beef between celebrities that takes place on such a public stage, people are picking sides and it seems enough are on Rock's side to cause a surge in ticket sales for the "Ego Death World Tour."
As shared by ticketing website TickPick:
Now, maybe it's because people know he now has some fresh material to add to the show and people want to see his response, as we haven't really gotten one yet, or maybe it's for a completely different reason. Who's to say?
If you're one who's excited to see Rock get back on the road, though, where can you see him in Michigan?

He will then be returning to Michigan on Friday, September 16th at the Fox Theater in Detroit but also added a second night at the venue on Saturday, September 17th.
