Coco Hits the Road, Sets His GPS for Tulsa
Following his contentious battle with NBC and departure after a seven-month stay as host of “The Tonight Show,” Conan O’Brien hits the road this spring with a 30-city tour, including a stop at Tulsa’s Brady Theater.
In a surprise announcement, tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. Thursday for O’Brien’s “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour,” which arrives in Tulsa at 8 p.m. May 15 at the Brady Theater. The show features O’Brien along with sidekick Andy Richter and the former Tonight Show Band.
The title of O’Brien’s tour comes from a stipulation in O’Brien’s departure from NBC, which prohibits him from starting a new show on a competing network before September, 2010. O’Brien reportedly is in talks with other networks, and emerged last month as a new star on Twitter, quickly gathering over 600,000 followers. In a statement, O’Brien jokingly offered a key reason for taking his show on the road.
“It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house,” O’Brien said.
Tickets for regular admission are $35 to $75 with special packages available, including a meet-and-greet for $587. Tickets are available at area Buy For Less stores, at www.protixonline.com and by phone at (866) 977-6849.
