Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan, two of the most popular stand-up comics in the world, are slated to take the stage in Las Vegas this July.
News of the pair’s show, which will go down inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena on July 9, was announced in a press release this week.
According to the release, tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 30 at 12 p.m. PT on AXS.com. The release also notes that cellphones will not be allowed, and masks will be mandatory.
Chappelle will also be taking the stage one week prior, with a solo show scheduled for July 2. Rogan, meanwhile, will serve as a color commentator for the UFC 264 card on July 10. Suffice it to say that both men will be busy during their time in Sin City.
Chappelle and Rogan’s upcoming show is a sign of things to come. Las Vegas is currently reopening, with casinos and venues opening at increased capacity starting May 1, and the further loosening of restrictions expected in the near future.
According to MGM Resorts CEO William Hornbuckle, those loosening restrictions have created a feeling of optimism in the city.
“It’s been great to see Las Vegas come alive again as the vibrant destination that we’ve all come to know and enjoy,” Hornbuckle said on an investor call Wednesday (via Skift). “Our gross bookings in March were one of the best months in the company’s history.”
“The pent-up demand [for Las Vegas entertainment] has been incredible.”
