Comedian Chris Rock has added three Texas stops as part of his 2022 world tour, including a November 3 date at Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving.
Presale for tickets to the Texas shows begins on Tuesday, April 12, at 10 a.m. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, April 13, at 10 a.m. Here's how to purchase tickets for the Irving show.
Rock has been seeing surges in ticket sales for his tour following the infamous incident at the Oscars in March.
While presenting Best Documentary, Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, saying "Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it." Pinkett, who has talked publicly about alopecia and hair loss, had her head shaved at the time.
This prompted Will Smith to walk up to Rock on the stage and smack him in front of the world on live television.
The Academy punished Will Smith by banning him from the Oscars and other events by the Academy for 10 years.
Rock has stayed fairly quiet on the incident, even through his latest comedy shows. He mentioned it during the first stop on his tour in Boston, but only said that he was still "processing what happened."
