After undergoing open heart surgery in March, funnyman Robin Williams has completed his first full week back on the road with his Weapons of Self-Destruction comedy tour.
His much-applauded return to the road was coupled with the announcement of a seven-show engagement at Town Hall in New York, NY. The stand begins on November 23-25 and then completes its run from November 30 to December 3.
Internet presales have already started for the year-end performances, and public onsales are set to follow on October 12 at noon (EDT). Prices for all seven shows are $70 to $100 (balcony), $100 (loge), and $100 to $150 (orchestra) in the 1,495-seat theater.
Williams relaunched his Weapons of Self-Destruction Tour on September 30 at Indiana University Auditorium in Bloomington, IN. The tour’s revival came after a summer-long break as the acclaimed performer recovered from open heart surgery earlier in the year.
The 58-year-old actor was in the midst of his spring calendar when he experienced shortness of breath, leading him to postpone a series of shows in Florida. However, just a day later, the remainder of the trek was postponed so Williams could undergo an emergency aortic valve replacement.
Prior to his medical leave, Williams was raking in the accolades for his one-man show, which was also his first tour in six years. Many dates of Weapons of Self-Destruction have sold out since it first launched in September 2008.
Williams’ next performance is October 8 at Ford Center in Oklahoma City, OK. In total, the fall tour will include nearly 40 shows across the United States and Canada.
