Former Tonight Show Host Conan O’Brien Confirms Tour Dates And Tickets.
Conan O’Brien tour dates have been confirmed. The former “Tonight Show” host has scheduled a live show at several theaters across the country. It’s a new stage project that gives him his own road show since leaving NBC.
O’Brien will make his debut at the “Hult Center for the Performing Arts” in Eugene, Oregon on April 12. The tour will end on June 1 at the “Radio City Music Hall” in New York City. The last performance is an interesting one and nobody really knows why he selected it.
The television comedian left NBC when the network put Jay Leno back to late night. He settled with the TV network and is currently working on the new gig. The exit contract doesn’t bar him from doing stage performances.
However, he cannot make any TV appearances until September. There is speculation that he plans to join the FOX television network to host a late night show. This would place Conan in direct competition with Jay Leno and his former TV network.
