(AllHipHop News) On September 18th, 2004, Dave Chappelle held a glorified block party in Brooklyn, NY that featured The Roots, BlackStar, The Fugees, Erykah Badu, Kanye West and a bountiful amount of other legends. A decade later, Dave Chapelle has three concerts planned to bring the block party to Radio City Music Hall.
Two months ago, Dave Chappelle announced he would be headlining his first ever stand-up at Radio City Music Hall this June and subsequently sold out the next five shows. The last of Dave’s five stand-up performances is scheduled to take place on June 22nd. Today (May 27th), Dave announces that two days after that final show, he will begin the first of his three full orchestra concerts featuring numerous musical guests:
June 24: Dave Chappelle and The Roots.
June 25: Dave Chappelle, Busta Rhymes, DJ Premier and Janelle Monae
June 26: Dave Chappelle and Erykah Badu
Tickets for the concert dates go on sale on this upcoming Monday (June 2nd) at ticketmaster.com. American Express® Card Members have access to pre-sale tickets from May 29th 10 A.M. – June 1st 10 A.M.
Questlove recently stated that the September 2004 block party was the “day of the Soulquarians funeral”. Check out Dave Chapelle’s “Block Party” below:
