Dave Chappelle and Childish Gambino are joining forces for one night in New York City in August.

Billboard spotted a Ticketmaster listing a show billed as Dave Chappelle & Childish Gambino: Live From Radio City taking place on August 19. The listing says that all packages will be inspected prior to entry. Complex reports that cell phones will not be allowed inside the venue, which is no surprise since both Chapelle and Gambino are known for their no cell phone policies at their own shows.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, June 16, at 10 a.m. ET with Chase Preferred cardmember presale happening on Tuesday, June 13 at 10 a.m. ET and Ticketmaster presale going live on Thursday, June 15 at 12 p.m. ET.

The show is the latest in a round of what is essentially Chapelle’s “comeback” year that has seen him deliver two comedy specials to Netflix, perform spot dates with Chris Rock and embark on an American tour.

For Gambino, this is a show coming after what was widely reported to be his last show of 2017 at Governor’s Ball in earlier this month. It was here that Gambino also hinted at his next album being his last.

The pairing is also a part of Chappelle’s residency at Radio City. Check out the dates below.
