Ellen DeGeneres Cancels 4 Summer Stand-Up Dates

Less than a month after the start of her “Ellen’s Last Stand…Up” tour, the cancellations have occurred.

Less than a month after launching her Ellen’s Last Stand…Up tour in June, Ellen DeGeneres has canceled a few of her scheduled performances.

For dates in July and August, DeGeneres was set to perform in Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle, and Chicago. However, Ticketmaster sent out a notice to ticket holders stating that the event had been canceled.

The website states, “Unfortunately, the Event Organizer has had to cancel your event.” “You have nothing to do with it. Once money is received from the Event Organizer, we will return the original payment method used at the time of purchase. It ought to show up on your account in 14–21 days.

Furthermore, according to Ticketmaster, “the refund will go to the fan who originally purchased the tickets from Ticketmaster” if the ticket was bought by someone other than the ticket holder.


According to Ticketmaster, the postponed dates are July 10 in Dallas, July 21 in San Francisco, July 23 in Seattle, and August 11 in Chicago.

Additional information on the cancellation was not given.

In late May, the 66-year-old comic revealed the dates for his 27-show North American tour. These dates will be the “last opportunity” to see DeGeneres in her “final curtain call,” according to a release shared with PEOPLE at the time.

That same month, PEOPLE revealed that DeGeneres’ next Netflix special will be her “last,” with filming scheduled for August 16 and 17 in Minneapolis.


In a news statement, Robbie Praw, Vice President of Stand-Up and Comedy Formats at Netflix, praised the former talk show host’s abilities and stated, “There is nobody quite like Ellen.”

Praw said, “She is a real legend and pioneer in so many ways.” “Later this year, we can’t wait to present fans with another hilarious comedy special featuring her.”

Relatable, DeGeneres’ 2018 special, was previously made available on the streaming platform.

Following her May 2021 statement that she would be ending her talk show of the same name after season 19, she made a comeback to comedy.

In a July 2020 BuzzFeed News article, current and former employees anonymously described their experiences on set, including allegations of being punished for taking medical leave, incidents of racial microaggressions, and fear of reprisals for filing complaints. At the time, the TV personality discussed being canceled during an appearance on Today.

“I still don’t understand it; I really didn’t understand it,” DeGeneres said in May 2021 to host Savannah Guthrie. “It was excessively planned and coordinated.”

In April, DeGeneres made a joke about being “kicked out of show business” for being “mean” during an L.A. standup act.

She continued in a different tone, saying, “I would try to avoid looking at the news because the hate went on for a long time.” The girl who said to be kind wasn’t kind. The headline said that.
