Coco Coast to Coast: Conan O’Brien announces his national tour (UPDATED)

Conantour
It’s official: Conan O’Brien is set to launch his two-month, 32-city “Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television” tour. (Check out the official website here).

O’Brien announced the event on his Twitter feed this morning. Here’s the early skinny: The tour will being in Eugene, Ore., on April 12, and make it to L.A. — specifically, Universal City — on April 24.

That’s right — Conan’s show will take place at the Gibson Ampitheatre, at Universal Citywalk. Yes, NBC Universal’s Universal Citywalk. Just a hop from Conan’s old “Tonight Show” stage.

What’s more, Conan’s dates in New York will take place at Radio City Music Hall — yes, again, just steps from NBC’s Rockefeller Plaza headquarters.

As usual, Hollywood makes for strange bedfellows.

The tour will include O’Brien’s sidekick, Andy Richter, as well as members of the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” band (known as the “Max Weinberg 7” during their “Late Night” tenure). Weinberg himself, however, will not be able to tour with the group.

The big event will span at least 20 states and two Canadian provinces, according to organizers. The tour has been rumored for weeks, as a way for O’Brien to circumvent his exit agreement with NBC — which doesn’t allow him to appear on camera until at least September.

“It was either a massive 30-city tour or start helping around the house,” O’Brien said.

Tix for the tour, sponsored by American Express, will start at $39.50. “It promises to be a night of music, comedy, hugging and the occasional awkward silence,” the press release quips.

According to O’Brien’s tweets, the response this morning was overwhelming enough that second nights have already been added to the Boston and New York stops. (And another update: San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, and LA have just been given second days as well.)

Here’s the full list of dates:
