After selling out five consecutive comedy shows within minutes of announcement, Dave Chappelle and Live Nation have added three additional shows to feature Chappelle along with several music guests playing with a full orchestra, June 24th through 26th, at Radio City Music Hall.

For these shows, Chappelle will combine his greatest love, stand-up comedy with his second love, music. The connection between improvisation and timing will be on full display as Chappelle co-headlines with a special musical guest each night, including The Roots, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, Janelle Monáe, DJ Premier and more to be announced. A full orchestra will enhance the concert experience.
