It’s time to celebrate! Chris Tucker will perform live at the Murat Theatre on Saturday, December 2nd, as part of his "The Legend Tour”!
This upcoming thirty-date tour marks his first major nationwide tour after a twelve-year hiatus. From September to January next year, the tour is scheduled to hit venues across the mainland United States and Canada.
Tucker initially gained fame as a rising stand-up comedian before his first iconic performance in the movie “Friday”. Despite how the comedy scene has changed dramatically since Tucker's last tour and his Netflix comedy special, "Chris Tucker Live," Tucker asserted in an interview with The Times that touring keeps him fresh and provides his fans with a lifeline.
“I started my career doing stand-up in comedy clubs, and it’s stand-up comedy that prepared me for all my movie roles. I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots. I love performing live; there’s nothing like the energy of a live crowd and making people laugh. I’m excited to be back out on tour.” he shares in his latest statement.
The actor starred alongside Jackie Chan in the comedy action film trilogy “Rush Hour” directed by Brett Ratner. Following this, he received critical acclaim for his role as Danny McDaniels in the David O' Russel romantic comedy “Silver Linings Playbook”.
When asked about his future in the film industry, The Guardian shares that Tucker is interested in doing more serious projects. "I would love to do more serious movies. Because people haven't seen me do a lot of that. It's a good thing for them to remember you, but you gotta keep moving,” he mentions.
The Hollywood Reporter also shares a review of one of his recent live performances. “Watching Tucker enact both his mother’s volcanic rage and his own brazen adolescent defiance is truly sublime because it’s tinged with the kind of specificity and humanity that informs the best comedy. Tucker lets his audience in here in a way that much of the rest of the special could have benefitted from. It’s a glimpse of unguarded genius from a performer who too often treads cautiously.”
