A decade ago, Dave Chappelle famously held his “Block Party” in Brooklyn, New York. Held for free at a secret location, the event was the subject of a Michel Gondry-directed film. The Ohio comedian/actor curated a concert, sharing the stage with an extremely rare reunited Fugees performance, in addition to appearances from The Roots, Common, Big Daddy Kane, and others. The moment was one of Chappelle’s last moments in the spotlight, before his hiatus from the public eye following resigning from his Comedy Central variety show.


Now 10 years later, Pitchfork reports that Chappelle will again hold a concert series. No longer a surprise, the Half Baked star will hold residence at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall for much of June. Following his sold-out June 18-22 comedy shows at Radio City, Dave has invited co-headliners The Roots, Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, and DJ Premier as well as an undisclosed full orchestra. These shows will be from June 24-26.
