Over the past two years, good friends Dave Chappelle & John Mayer, one an Emmy Award-winning comedian, the other a GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, have played several intimate joint pop-up shows across the United States. Now, Live Nation is pleased to announce that the two world-class performers will be bringing their unique music and comedy hybrid to Las Vegas for the first time, as they present Controlled Danger at MGM Grand Garden Arena Sunday, Dec. 30 at 8 p.m.
Tickets ranging in price from $45 to $269.50 (not including applicable service charges or fees) and are on sale through AXS.com.
The first half of the performance features a solo musical set by John Mayer, and a solo comedy set by Dave Chappelle. The real magic happens during the second half of the evening when both performers join together on stage for songs, stories, improvised dancing, and more. That is to say—hilarity ensues. Las Vegas may be known for its world-class shows, but it hasn’t seen anything like this before.
Limited VIP Packages will be available exclusively through On The List Presents. Packages includePremium Tickets, Meet & Greets, VIP Lounge access, and Controlled Danger gift bags. Full Package Descriptions available HERE.
Dave Chappelle is a comedian, actor, and producer who’s brash, clever, in-your-face brand of humor has made him one of the most respected entertainers of his generation. In 2017, Chappelle celebrated 30 years in comedy by releasing four highly anticipated stand-up specials on Netflix along with a companion double-feature vinyl comedy album. He’s since netted two television Emmy Awards, a Grammy, and Pollstar’s Comedy Tour of The Year Award. In October, he made a remarkable appearance in the much-anticipated remake of the film A Star Is Born. Best known for his groundbreaking television sketch comedy program Chappelle’s Show, Chappelle has since established himself as arguably one of the most touring comics on the U.S. circuit -- selling out shows within minutes of the announcements.
Singer/songwriter/artist John Mayer has won seven GRAMMY awards and has earned a record seven No. 1s on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart and 25 entries on the Hot Rock Songs chart, the most for any solo artist. In 2018, he released the Gold-certified “New Light,” while working on his eighth solo album, the follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed The Search for Everything. For the third consecutive year, Mayer toured with Dead & Company, which played to over 500,000 people this year on its third and largest tour. Additionally, he launched “Current Mood,” his highly regarded Instagram Live show on Sundays, which some have dubbed, “the best way to start the week on a high note, maybe even the only way.”
