UPDATE: Dave Chappelle will add a ninth and final show at Radio City Music Hall featuring Nas will be accompanied by a full orchestra and will perform his iconic debut album Illmatic in full. Chappelle made the announcement Last night on Late Night With David Letterman. When Letterman asked him why he suddenly left Chappelle's Show in 2005, the stand-up comedian gave the answer of the century, "Listen, here it is: Technically, I never quit. I'm seven years late for work." He goes into more details stating financial reasons for his decision. Watch the clip below.


It's been nearly ten years since Dave Chappelle threw a massive block party in Brooklyn (and graced the cover of XXL) and the legendary stand-up comedian is making his comeback this summer with eight scheduled shows at New York City's famed Radio City Music Hall. After selling out the first five dates in a matter of minutes, Live Nation and Chappelle added three more shows that will not only feature a stand-up set but also a full orchestra and co-headlining musical guests like The Roots, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier, Erykah Badu and Janelle Monae.

The artists will be performing on different nights and the dates are as follows:

June 24: Dave Chappelle and The Roots
June 25: Dave Chappelle, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier, and Janelle Monáe
June 26: Dave Chappelle and Erykah Badu
