Chris Rock Tour Dates, Tickets, Cost, Everything To Know

Tickets to see Chris Rock perform are probably the most coveted in comedy right now as thousands of people line up to see the comedian in person after he was slapped at the Oscars by Will Smith.

The slap has rocked Hollywood and beyond, prompting the cost of tickets to see Rock perform a stand-up set to surge this week.

Rock's Ego Death World Tour commenced in March, with 38 cities currently lined up for its North American leg.

This week, he performed six shows at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston to officially kick off the tour, which marks Rock's first comedy tour in five years.

After Boston, Rock will perform in Atlantic City on Saturday to a sold-out crowd, and then later this month he heads to Reno, Nevada; Hollywood, Florida; Durham, North Carolina; Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and Baltimore.

During Wednesday's show, Rock broke his silence on the situation when he told the audience that he was "still processing what happened, so at some point I'll talk about that s***."

"Let me be all misty and s***," Rock said, with tears in his eyes. "I don't have a bunch of s*** to say about that, so if you came here for that... I had written a whole show before this weekend."
