NEW YORK — Chris Rock is coming to a venue near you.

On Monday, the comic announced on his official Facebook page that he is heading out on tour in 2017 for the first time in nine years.

Rock used the Los Angeles Comedy Store as the background for his announcement and said the “Total Blackout Tour” will have brand new material for the world tour.

The 51-year-old will perform at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., on April 22nd. He’ll also be in Atlantic City at the Borgata Event Center on June 3.

“Been a little busy, you know, writing ‘Pootey Tang 3’ and everything,” Rock joked. “But hey, it’s time, okay?”

The news comes weeks after reports that Netflix will pay Rock $40 million for two specials.

It’s been a good year for Rock, who also hosted the Oscars.
