Tracy Morgan to Tour in 2016


Tracy Morgan made a triumphant return to “Saturday Night Live” in New York on Saturday. Now he’s going to take the big stage at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. — as well as theaters in several other cities.

The tour, called “Tracy Morgan: Picking Up the Pieces,” will begin in Hammond, Indiana, on February 5. Morgan is scheduled to play a number of casino venues and notable theaters, including Boston’s Wilbur Theatre (February 20), Connecticut’s Grand Theater at Foxwoods (March 19) and Las Vegas’ Mirage Hotel and Casino (May 6-7).

The Washington show, part of Comedy at the Kennedy Center, will be April 22.

“It’s just like falling off a bike and getting back on, that’s all — you don’t forget where the pedals are,” Morgan said in a Kennedy Center press release.

Morgan was seriously injured in June 2014 after a Walmart truck slammed into the limo occupied by Morgan and four others on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan was hospitalized with broken ribs, a broken nose, and a broken leg. His friend, comedian James McNair, was killed.

Walmart settled lawsuits by McNair’s family, Morgan and other injured passengers for undisclosed amounts earlier this year.
