ORLANDO, Fla. – Comedian Chris Rock will now be performing for two nights in Orlando this July as demand for his Ego Death World Tour soars.

Rock, who is performing July 27 at the Dr. Phillips Center, added a second show for July 28 at DPAC at 8 p.m. The first show is sold out.

Tickets for the July 28 show run from $49.50 to nearly $279 for VIP seats.

Rock made headlines last weekend after he joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia condition at the Academy Awards. In response, Smith’s husband, Will Smith, got on stage and smacked Rock on live television, to the shock of the audience and those on social media.

Smith later apologized for the smack.

Wednesday in Boston, at his first show following the Oscars incident, Rock received standing ovations when he took the stage and said he was “still kind of processing” what happened, but he also said he had no plans to talk at length about it.
