Chappelle Plans Surprise Seattle Show

Filed Under Live Events, Stand-Up Comedy

In. oh, 40 minutes or so from now, tickets go on sale for “The Block Party All Stars featuring Dave Chappelle” - a show unannounced until today and naturally, as it’s Dave, had the appropriate PR effect - landing immediately on Yahoo’s home page (where I saw it.) Pretty effective promotion of his forthcoming concert film “Dave Chappelle’s Block Party”, which also features surprise attendance at a Chappelle event for some lucky folks. The show takes place this Sunday at 7PM at Seattle’s Paramount Theater. According to the office Ticketmaster site, you can only get a ticket if you live in Washington, Oregon or Idaho and each ticket costs $52.50. Love a report on this one if any of my readers attends.

Buy a ticket to “The Block Party All Stars featuring Dave Chappelle” (sales start at 1PM on 2/15/06)

UPDATE: Looks like Dave will be going to more than Seattle. It’s merely the first stop in a tour of shows to promote the film. Cities include:  San Francisco, Denver, Houston, Dallas, Birmingham, Charlotte, North Carolina, Upper Darby, PA and the close-to-Dave’s-farm Dayton, OH. I did notice on the Dallas page that it says Dave will not be performing a full set. With two musical acts at each destination, I’m not sure this is not true for all points in the tour. Visit ticketmaster for all these shows.

Denver paper announced show here also. Dave was just here in November at the Comedy Works and very nice as always, off stage.
