Dave Chappelle Announces 4 Impromptu Shows In Michigan Next Week
Get excited Dave Chappelle fans because he just announced 4 back to back shows in Michigan next week.
The actor and comedian will be doing a comedy show in Detroit at The Fillmore on August 10th through the 12th. Chappelle made the announcement this morning that he will be doing 4 shows over the 3 day stay in Detroit.
August 10th is the first night he is in town and he will be performing two shows, the first beginning at 7:00pm and then the second show is later that night at 10:30pm. The third show is August 11th at 10:00pm and the fourth is the 12th at 7:00pm. Tickets go on sale today at noon and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
The show is 18 and up and the venue will be enforcing some COVID measures. According to an article by MLive.com, in order to see the show, "everyone in attendance will be subject to a rapid COVID test before entering the building." So if you are worried about attending a show during a pandemic, this might calm your fears a little bit.
Dave Chappelle has played The Fillmore on several occasions over the last decade, including one notorious show in 2015, where he was booed and heckled during his entire set. The show was the second of the night and in between shows, he got high with some rappers, which lead to a bad performance that night. In an interview with Click on Detroit, he said "I had smoked some reefer with some rappers. I don’t know if you know anything about hanging out with rappers, but their weed is very strong. Stronger than I was accustomed to.”
Hopefully he will stay away from the marijuana for his upcoming shows. Unless you are in to that sort of thing...
