Ellen Is Going Back On Tour For The First Time in 15 Years

There’s not much left to achieve for Ellen DeGeneres after coming out on national television, having her career ruined because of it and then coming back with one of the most successful daytime talk shows of all time. That’s why Ellen is going back to basics with her brief comedy tour, her first in 15 years.

The tour will only be three cities (San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle) because when you’re at that level, you can kind of do whatever you want. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the shows in Seattle will also be used to film DeGeneres’ debut Netflix special, which is expected to air later this year.

It might be surprising for people to learn that DeGeneres has only done two stand-up specials in her career: the first in 2000 and the second in 2003. The Ellen DeGeneres Show also started in 2003, so she’s been a little busy with that over the last decade and a half.

If you want to attend one of the shows, here’s a breakdown of the dates:

August 10        San Diego, CA            Balboa Theatre

August 11        San Diego, CA             Balboa Theatre
