With a little help from her friends, late night comic and author Chelsea Handler will launch her latest comedy tour in late spring.
The Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me Tour begins May 10 at Agganis Arena in Boston, MA, and wraps June 25 at Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA. Heather McDonald, Josh Wolf and Brad Wollack — all regular guests on Handler’s talk show “Chelsea Lately” — will also appear throughout the trek.
Most dates of the tour will feature a single performance by the comedian and her cohorts. But Handler and crew will perform a double-header — with sets at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. — during her May 21 stand at the Beacon Theatre in New York, NY.
Other single-show stops include May 11 at Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL; May 14 at Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, CA: May 28 at The Colosseum in Las Vegas, NV; and June 11 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC.
The “Lies” Tour was announced early last week, and its onsales began over the February 18-19 weekend. Tickets are still available for the 19-date venture, with prices mostly set within the $50 to $80 range, based on Ticketmaster.com listings. Exceptions to the pricing structure include the star’s Austin performance ($38 to $85), and her New York City stand ($85 to $95).
Handler last toured for the 2010 Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang Tour. According to the tour’s press release, the sold-out promo tour for the book “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang” was extended three times and visited a total of 44 markets.
Like that tour, the upcoming jaunt shares its title with Handler’s new publication. “Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me,” a compilation of stories about the famous comedian as told by family and friends, is set for a May 10 release.
