Kevin Hart performs at Atlanta’s Uptown Comedy Club on March 11, 2016.

Kevin Hart will bring laughs to arenas across North America this summer and early fall with his first major tour in more than four years.

The superstar comic’s “Reality Check Tour” will hit upwards of 30 arenas, beginning with two shows at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas (July 2-3) and concluding with a gig at San Francisco’s Chase Center (Oct. 1).

Noteworthy stops on Hart’s itinerary include Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena (July 15), Austin’s Moody Center (Aug. 7), Atlanta’s State Farm Arena (Sept. 9) and Miami’s FTX Arena (Sept. 17).

“I am hype as shit to go back out on tour,” Hart said in a statement. “There is nothing better than making people laugh, I can feel the energy in the venues like caffeine pumping through my veins. I’ve been cooking up something special and have thoughts I need to get off my chest. Go get your tickets and come ready to have a good night!”

Hart, who was named Pollstar‘s comedy touring artist of the ’10s in 2021, remains one of the strongest live draws in stand-up. From 2015 to 2018, Hart grossed $161 million, including the astronomical annual gross of $82.2 million in 2015, which landed him at No. 12 on Pollstar‘s worldwide touring chart that year.

Box office highlights from Hart’s 2018 touring included two-show stands at Dallas’s American Airlines Center, where he grossed $2.17 million from 24,771 tickets sold Oct. 26-27, and at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, where he brought in $2.12 million from 24,914 tickets sold Dec. 5-6.

Among Hart’s greatest live accomplishments was his headlining performance at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 30, 2015.

Hart’s upcoming tour represents a return to the road after he was hospitalized by a September 2019 car crash. In January and early February, Hart performed several small shows at the Fox Theater in Bakersfield, Calif.
