Not only will Eddie Izzard bring his newest sell-out tour, Force Majeure, to Dallas this summer, he'll do it the most stylish way possible.
Rather than filling a soulless stadium for one night, where screams of "Cake or Death" would ricochet off a thousand distant walls, Izzard will hover at Dallas' beautiful Majestic Theater, playing to its smaller crowds during a two-night run.
England's biggest name in comedy has become known as much for his roles on Broadway, in American film and his prevalence through pop culture as his touring shows and HBO specials. Also: Those shoes.
You're a fan, so we don't need to tell you much more than Eddie Izzard will perform at the Majestic on June 24 and 25. General admission tickets go on sale Tuesday, February 4, so be ready. And fan clubbers, you get first stab at the things on Wednesday, January 29 at 10 a.m. Use the awesome password "bees".
