Dave Chappelle will reopen Fillmore Detroit with live concerts
Chappelle’s show – the live version – comes to Detroit to reopen one of the city’s premier venues.
Dave Chappelle will give four shows at the Fillmore Detroit in August, the first concerts for live audiences on the premises since the pandemic shutdowns in March 2020.
Tickets will be sold on Monday lunchtime on Ticketmaster.com for two shows on August 10th and one show each on August 11th and 12th.
According to Fillmore Detroit’s announcement of the concerts on Facebook, an on-site COVID-19 rapid test is required prior to entry.
The performances are from 18 years of age.
In June, Chappelle opened New York’s Radio City Music Hall with a premiere of his new documentary, “Dave Chappelle: This Time This Place”. It was the last event of the Tribeca Festival in 2021.
The film recorded the outdoor comedy concerts that Chappelle hosted in his home state of Ohio in 2020. The events became a meeting point for top performers such as Kevin Hart, Trevor Noah and Chelsea Handler.

At this event, the spectators had to present a vaccination card.
Chappelle was also busy hosting a new podcast called “The Midnight Miracle”. He also contributed a two and a half minute comedy track to Detroit 2, the Big Sean album, which was released in September 2020.
The first music concert for the Fillmore Detroit is scheduled for the rock band State Champs on September 19th.
