Sorry Kendrick, Chris Rock is the Most Anticipated Show of 2017

Don't miss it.

As a lifelong fan of hip-hop and comedy, it’s a shame to admit that I’ve never seen Chris Rock live.

The legendary comedian, actor, writer, producer and director has been a fixture in comedy for over two decades. He’s also been one of the funniest voices in the hip-hop sphere, whether it’s iconic films spoofing legendary rap groups, iconic music videos spoofing legendary rappers, iconic bits about rap music or show-stealing appearances on iconic rap albums, the man is a true hip-hop icon without ever dropping a rap album.

At the ripe age of 52, Rock hasn’t lost a step, nor an ounce of relevance. In the last year alone, he’s trolled the world about a new André 3000 album and appeared on the most notorious track from Rick Ross’ latest album.

5 New Albums You Need to Hear This Week

New albums from Doe Boe, Hotboii, Kweku Flick and more? We have a complete rundown of all the new releases you should make time to hear.

Earlier this year, Rock kicked off the “Total Blackout Tour”—his first full-scale stand-up tour in nine years, complete with all new material. In a social media-driven world that barely remembers what happened last week, it’s the first chance for a lot of younger fans that know Rock more for movie roles, hosting the Oscars and Kanye West guest features to see him in his natural element: on the road.

Just announced, Rock will be hitting New York for “Total Blackout” this December, with two shows at Madison Square Garden and one at Barclays Center. Tickets don’t go on sale until Saturday, but DJBooth has you covered, teaming up with Live Nation for an exclusive pre-sale, starting today.

Just hit the following link with the code “DJBOOTH”: Yes, I realize how good this show will be and I'm buying tickets.

For a top-five comedian of all time, it’s a must-see event and the live show I'm anticipating the most this year (sorry, Kendrick).
