This summer, the only ticket that may be hotter than Dave Chappelle’s sold-out stand-up run at Radio City Music Hall is the reclusive comedian co-headlining the venue with some of his favorite musicians.

In a string of just-announced shows, Chappelle will share the Radio City stage with musical guests including the Roots, Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, Busta Rhymes, and DJ Premier, with more to be announced. Each night of the June 24-26 stand will feature a different artist with a full orchestra accompaniment. Chappelle’s sold-out, stand-up-only dates are June 18-22.

The Radio City mini-residency marks Chappelle’s first NYC performances in 10 years. It also comes a decade after he gathered the likes of Kanye West, Mos Def, and the Fugees for a massive concert in the middle of Brooklyn, which was filmed for the Michel Gondry-directed documentary, Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.

Presale for the co-headlining dates begins Thursday.
