The newly added dates come hot of the heels of Sunday’s show at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, which marked the first time a comedian headlined and sold out an NFL football stadium.

Tickets for the PPL Center go on sale Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. and can be purchased at or by phone at 610-347-TIXX (8499).

Kevin Hart is one of comedy’s biggest stars, with a celebrated and award-winning career that has seen the talented entertainer become one of the industry’s most important and influential voices. Since his career began, Hart has worked non-stop, and in 2015, he released two movies as well as hit the road for his What Now? Tour. He can be seen in Screen Gem’s “The Wedding Ringer” and starred opposite Will Ferrell in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Get Hard.”

In 2016, Hart will star in “Ride Along 2,” the anticipated sequel to last year’s $100 million blockbuster hit. The consummate worker, he is a force in television too where he is currently executive producing the hit show “Real Husbands of Hollywood” on BET.

In 2012, Hart was tapped to host the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, garnering much industry praise for his appearance. His comedy tour, “Let Me Explain,” took him to 90 American cities before hitting countries throughout Europe and Africa. A testament to his talent and popularity, he became only the second American in history to sell out London’s O2 Arena. In addition to sold-out tours, his additional film credits also include “Top Five,” “Think Like a Man Too,” “About Last Night,” and “This Is the End.”
