Chris Rock announces two tour dates in London with Dave Chappelle

Chris Rock has announced two tour dates in London along with fellow comedian Dave Chappelle.

The duo will perform at the O2 Arena on September 3 and 4 this year, it was announced on social media.

It comes after both men were attacked earlier this year while onstage at shows in the US.

Rock was punched by Will Smith at the 94th Academy Awards after he joked about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, and her short haircut.

The now infamous incident led to Smith resigning from the Academy and being banned from the Oscars for 10 years.

Chappelle was also attacked during a show at the Hollywood Bowl location in Los Angeles last month.

Posting news of the London shows on Instagram, Rock wrote, “This is really happening.”

Tickets go on sale Friday.
