Kevin Hart returns to stand-up comedy with a 31-city tour.

He last did an arena show in Atlanta in 2018 at what was then called Philips Arena.

Given Kevin Hart’s crazy schedule of acting, hosting TV shows and taping commercials, it’s hard to believe he still has time to do stand-up comedy. But he is embarking on a 31-city tour later this year, including a stop at State Farm Arena in Atlanta Sept. 9.

“I am hype as [expletive] to go back out on tour,” Hart said in a press release. “There is nothing better than making people laugh, I can feel the energy in the venues like caffeine pumping through my veins. I’ve been cooking up something special and have thoughts I need to get off my chest.”

Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 18, at 10 a.m. at KevinHartNation.com or Ticketmaster.com. Prices have not been released. Pre-sales begin Wednesday.

Hart has been a monster arena tour magnet for a decade. This will be the first time he has been in town for a big arena concert since State Farm was called Philips Arena in 2018. He also headlined a Philips show in 2012 and three more in 2015.

In 2020, just before the pandemic began, Hart spent weeks doing shows at Midtown’s Laughing Skull Lounge (capacity under 100) prepping for an upcoming Netflix special. The special was delayed due to the pandemic and some of the material that he used in the 2021 special changed as well.

Over the years in Atlanta, he has also acted in numerous movies including “Jumanji: The Next Level,” two “Ride Along” films, “Think Like a Man” and “Night School” along with the Quibi series “Die Hart,” now on Roku.

Forbes, in its last annual ranking of top earning comics in 2019, had Hart at No. 1 with $59 million. During his last 2018 tour, he sold more than one million tickets.
