Acclaimed comedian Robin Williams has been sending sold-out audiences into full-blown belly laughs during his 35-city Weapons of Self-Destruction tour. Due to the show’s high ticket demand, the iconic actor has announced 20 additional shows early in 2009.
The new dates pick up February 11 at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA, and continue through March 18 at the Performing Arts Center in East Lansing, MI. The jaunt includes a March 4-5 run at the Seminole Casino in Hollywood, FL, as well as split performances on February 27 and March 12 at the Fox Theater in Atlanta, GA.
Meet & Greet and Premium ticket packages will be available for all dates, along with regular tickets. Public onsales for the various ticket and package options begin through mid-November into early December, depending on the venue. According to Williams’s official Web Site, additional dates are continued to be confirmed.
The Weapons of Self-Destruction tour is Williams’s first American comedy tour in six years. When announcing the first round of tour dates, which began late in September, the comedian said 2008 was the perfect year to hit the road again.
“It’s an election year, which is basically Christmas for stand-up comics,” he commented in a statement. “And I figured I should get my ass on the road while the Shrub is still in office. A lot has happened in the world and in my life since I last did this six years ago, and there’s no better thrill and no better therapy than getting on that high-wire in front of a live audience.”
