Ticket sales skyrocket for Chris Rock as fans wonder if he’ll talk about slapping Will Smith

LOS ANGELES – One slap is all it takes to become the hottest ticket in town.

Ticket sellers are reporting that seats to see Chris Rock perform in stand-up have suddenly skyrocketed.

Rock has yet to publicly comment on the incident at the Oscars when Will Smith took the stage and slapped him after a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada.

Fans apparently want to see if Rock could incorporate the incident into his stand-up routine.

Rock has shows in Boston on March 30, 31 and April 1. At one point before the Oscars, tickets could be purchased for $46, according to retailer TickPick. Now, the latest prices for these seats range from $317 to $797.

TickPick says after the Oscars, it sold more tickets to see Rock in one night than in the last month combined.

Rock’s longtime friend Adam Sandler took to Twitter to cheer his friend on, writing, “I can’t wait. Love you mate!”

Tickets for Rock’s performance on April 8 at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio are currently $226 and up on the site.

Rock’s “Ego Death Tour” in the United States has 38 dates scheduled so far, in major cities including Las Vegas, Denver, Oakland, Seattle, New York, Chicago and Toronto. Rock will wrap up the tour at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles – where Sunday’s Oscars took place – on November 17-18.
