Rock is set to perform six shows in Boston from March 30 through April 1 before heading to his Ego Death World Tour on April 2. The tour is scheduled to hit major cities from Las Vegas,  New York, Chicago, and Toronto.

This follows after the comedian was slapped on stage by Will Smith for making a G.I. Jane joke about Jada Pinkett Smith at the 94th Academy Awards.  Since the show, social media has been loaded with shock, memes, and think pieces about the incident. Will Smith has since made a public apology and Rock reported that he will not be pressing charges.
