Adam Sandler made waves last year with his first stand-up release since his 2004 studio album Shhh…Don’t Tell. 100% Fresh, which Laughspin named the best stand-up special of 2018, will now go on a North American tour. The 100% Fresher tour kicks off May 31 in Minneapolis.
100% Fresh hit Netflix in October and instantly caught people’s attention with Sandler’s whacky non-sequiturs and goofy songs. Phone, Wallet, Keys, a hip hop song about the essentials of everyday travel, garnered over 3.1 million views on YouTube. Other songs, like his Chris Farley tribute, struck an emotional chord in viewers old enough to remember the late comedian’s tragic passing.
The 100% Fresher tour comes just after Warner Bros. Records released a CD version of the special on March 22 of this year.
Adam Sandler plans one-month 18-city tour
Sandler’s return to stand-up has been mostly well-received. The Saturday Night Live alum has been popping up on comedy club stages more and more since starring in Funny People as a former stand-up who transitions into a massive movie career before getting the urge to return to his roots. Sound familiar?
He’s clearly going hard for this tour, planning to hit 18 North American cities in just one month. Each city is a one-night-only engagement and looking at the schedule, his jet or tour bus or teleporter is going to get a lot of work this June.
The Grown Ups star is in the midst of a massive multi-picture deal with Netflix, one of the earlier stars tapped by the streaming giant for original content. Sandler’s theatrical films have grossed over $3 billion worldwide. His next film, Murder Mystery, comes out on Netflix on June 14. He stars opposite Jennifer Anniston and Luke Evans.
Tickets go on sale to the general public starting March 29 at 10:00 a.m. local time at LiveNation.com. Citi cardmembers can purchase pre-sale tickets starting March 27 at 10:00 a.m. local time through 10:00 p.m. on March 28 through Citi’s Private Pass program.
