Comedian Dave Chappelle will visit Atlanta for a series of stand-up shows next month at a popular downtown venue.

Atlanta fans will have eight opportunities to see Chappelle live at The Tabernacle, starting with a show on June 11.

Tickets for the shows, which are scheduled for 7 p.m. June 11-16 and 18-19, will go on sale May 11 on Livenation.com. Tickets will range from $69.50-$89.50.

Each show will adhere to a strict "no cell phone" policy. Patrons who bring their phones into the venue will be asked to place them in a locked pouch until the end of the show.

In addition to releasing two hour-long comedy specials on Netflix earlier this year, Chappelle will reportedly appear alongside Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in Warner Bros.' remake of "A Star is Born." According to Deadline, the film is currently scheduled for a September release.
