A one-two punch of A-list comedy heads to Bridgestone Arena this fall for a night of stand-up.
Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan co-headline the downtown Nashville venue Sept. 3, a Friday night. The show kicks off at 8 p.m., per a news release.
Tickets go on sale June 25 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.
Chappelle and Rogan previously scheduled a Nashville stop for April 2020, prior to COVID-19 shuttering virtually all live events.
The show comes as part of a weekend run that continues Sept. 4 in New Orleans. It comes during a busy Labor Day weekend in Middle Tennessee, as Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival returns Sept. 2-5 to Manchester.
Chappelle stayed busy during the pandemic, hosting “Saturday Night Live,” releasing multiple comedy specials — including “8:46,” a performance piece in response to George Floyd’s death that Nashville-based Third Man released on vinyl — and launching “The Midnight Miracle,” a podcast with Talib Kweli and yasiin bey.
A tenured comedian and media personality, Rogan may be best known off stage for his UFC commentary and chart-topping podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience.”
As with all Chappelle dates, the show prohibits all recording devices — including cell phones. Audience members with cell phones may be asked to place the device in a locked pouch during the show.
The comedians join a growing list of scheduled events for the arena this fall as concertgoers return to seats after more than a year of live music being sidelined due to COVID-19. Notable upcoming 2021 shows include Harry Styles (Oct. 1), Alan Jackson (Oct. 8), Chris Stapleton (Oct. 22-23) and Lauren Daigle (Nov. 19).
