Will the slap heard around the world end up being lucrative for Chris Rock? While the comedian has yet to comment on Will Smith’s attack, his comedy tour kicks off in Boston tonight…and ticket sales have spiked in the wake the incident.
According to a tweet from the ticket resale site, TickPick, “We sold more tickets to see Chris Rock overnight than we did in the past month combined.” Meanwhile, the site’s public relations rep, Kyle Zorn, said that the cheapest tickets for the Ego Death World Tour kickoff went from $46 to $411 by Monday.
Also, 88 percent of the ticket sales on the site came through after the Oscars. For the record, Friday night’s show is sold out on Ticketmaster.
