Chris Rock is bringing the pain back to Tampa.

The Emmy-winning, Oscar-hosting comic on Monday announced plans for his first major stand-up tour in nine years, and its dates include an April 14 stop at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa.

“It’s time, okay?” Rock said in a Facebook video. “I’m going on tour. I’m coming to your town. I got all new material. I can’t wait to see you.”

Ticket prices for Rock’s Tampa show will start at $49.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Click here for info.

Next year looks like it’ll be a busy year for Rock as a stand-up. He inked a deal to bring two new specials to Netflix, the first of which will be filmed during this “Total Blackout Tour.”

***UPDATE*** Due to overwhelming demand, the Straz Center has added a second show by Rock on April 15. Click here for details.
