Chris Rock will make a grand return to the stage next year, as he announced the Total Blackout stand-up tour. It marks his first trek in almost a decade. "First time in nine years, haven't done it in awhile," the comedic legend said outside Los Angeles' Comedy Store via Facebook Live. "Been a little busy, You know, writing Pootie Tang 3 and everything. But hey, it's time."

The tour begins on Feb. 14 in Durham, NC, and travels through North America before wrapping up in Atlantic City, NJ, on June 3. Tickets will be available beginning Dec. 7 on Live Nation.
