Ellen DeGeneres unveils new dates for her ‘Last Stand… Up’ comedy tour

Two years after her talk show was canceled, comedian Ellen DeGeneres has announced she’s extending her comedy tour.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show ended in 2022 after 19 years on the air after reports that the host created a hostile work environment for her employees. She started her “Last Stand… Up” tour in April and will now be making stops in Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston.

“Here it is!” Degeneres wrote on social media. “These are the cities and dates for my final stand-up tour.”

DeGeneres included a link to the site where tickets are sold, though the website appeared to be down as of Wednesday afternoon when visiting it. However, tickets are available on Ticketmaster, with a notice that cellphones, smartwatches, and accessories must be put in locked pouches for the duration of the performance.

In April, DeGeneres addressed her show’s cancellation during a stop in Los Angeles, claiming she was “kicked out of show business.” She also claimed that there are “no mean people in show business,” potentially referring to the allegations on how she treated her show’s employees.


“The hate went on for a long time, and I would try to avoid looking at the news,” DeGeneres said. “The ‘be kind’ girl wasn’t kind. That was the headline.” 

DeGeneres’s show was replaced with The Kelly Clarkson Show, hosted by a singer who became famous after she won the first season of American Idol in 2002.
