The crowd at New York's legendary Comedy Cellar is always primed for high-profile drop-ins like Louis C.K. and Jerry Seinfeld. But this was different. Dave Chappelle was in New York - and on stage. Chappelle, one of the country's most sought-after yet reclusive comedians after walking away in 2005 from his still-influential Comedy Central show, spent three recent nights onstage at the Cellar, sometimes joined by friends, including Chris Rock, Kevin Hart, Marlon Wayans and Paul Mooney.

"I am set to continue as planned with Drake and Miguel on the Would You Like a Tour?

After numerous woes forced Kanye West to shift the itinerary of his Yeezus tour, the elaborate production is back on track, a rep for the rapper announced Wednesday. West will resume his tour on Nov. 16 in Philadelphia. Last week, West moved his Nov. 1 gig at the Honda Center in Anaheim to Dec. 13, citing “production logistics.” And in more bad luck, the truck carrying the set's custom-made video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen was in an accident on the way to Vancouver, Canada, forcing the rapper to postpone the show for a second time as the damaged gear was repaired.
