The award-winning comedian will no longer be bringing his Total Blackout tour to Dubai as planned.

Fans of legendary funnyman Chris Rock were thrilled to hear he was bringing his ‘Total Blackout’ tour to Dubai on January 5 and 6.

However, fans may now be left disappointed by the news that the gigs have been postponed. Event organisers Flash Entertainment posted the announcement to their Facebook page today.

As yet, no reason for the cancellation or rescheduled dates have been given, but we’ll update you as soon as we know more.

Those who have already purchased tickets are advised to contact the customer service teams at either Ticketmaster or Virgin Megastore.

The dates, which were set for January 5 and 6, at Dubai World Trade Centre, were part of Rock’s first tour in over nine years.
