Breathe easy, Team Coco: Conan O'Brien's "Suck on This, NBC!" tour will stop in Denver/Boulder.
Conan will do two shows in May: Sunday, May 9 at Boulder's Macky Auditorium and Monday, May 10 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, both at 8p.m. From the press release:
Conan O'Brien will headline a live comedy/music review that begins a two-month, 30-city tour on April 12th. The aptly titled "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television" tour kicks off in Eugene, Oregon, and will take Conan and a cast that will include longtime sidekick Andy Richter and the former Tonight Show band to theaters in at least 20 states and two Canadian provinces.
"It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping out around the house" says O'Brien.
Tickets -- which range from $40 to $80, plus $5,000 in various fees -- are on sale now at Ticketmaster.
