UPDATED: Dave Chappelle is coming to Minnesota for eight shows

Dave_Chappelle_2013.jpg
File this one as under the radar: David Chappelle has quietly been scheduled to perform at First Avenue next week. Thankfully, this time he's given us a bit more warning, as the standup's last Minneapolis show at the State Theatre was announced about 24 hours before the set.

[UPDATED SHOW INFO: This go-around he'll be hitting up First Avenue for four shows. Performances will be at 6:30 and 10 p.m. on Monday, November 11 through Thursday, November 14. All events are 18+, and tickets are $55.]

Chappelle has had a few meltdowns onstage recently, most notoriously during a Hartford, Connecticut, show where the audience heckled him and acted like assholes in general. Hopefully, Minnesota will give him a better reception, as his last visit featured a late-night party that obviously yielded some good times.

When not touring for Funny or Die or other projects, Chappelle lives a relatively low-key life on a farm in Xenia, Ohio, with his wife and kids.

For more info and for tickets, check out First Avenue's website.

wow, so, it started as two monday shows, then became monday/tuesday, and then monday/tuesday/wednesday/thursday? Was the plan to always do 8 shows :P ? Or did this originally start out as 2 low key ones and they convinced Dave to perform 4 times as many times :P ?

He played in Raleigh, NC in June. He didn't walk off the stage then and it was worth the money.

if i wanted to hear someone bitch about stuff for half an hour and then storm out cause he felt like it, i would talk to the hobos outside first ave for free.

I think it's true that he's cracked up a little. Last few times I caught his current act he was NOT very funny anymore. #sad

If that were true, than we'd at least have 500 tickets being resold out there. Not that that's ideal either, but I'm guessing it just wasn't as under the radar as the article implied.

It's okay if it's sold out already; he'll probably storm off the stage at some point anyways.
