Kevin Hart has added a new date to the South African leg of his forthcoming “Reality Check” world tour.

Hart initially announced his return to Mzansi with his one-night-only performance at the Sun Bet Arena at Time Square Casino on Friday, February 17, 2023.

On Thursday, the award-winning comedian and actor announced that he has extended his South African tour with a new additional date, Saturday, February 18.

“Big Concerts and Live Nation Comedy confirmed today that due to popular demand, a second Kevin Hart ‘Reality Check’ Tour date has been added to the SunBet Arena, Time Square, Pretoria show run. NEW DATE: Saturday, February 18, 2023,” read the press statement.

When the initial announcement was made earlier this week, South African fans took to different social media platforms, pleading with the organisers to add another show in Cape Town.

While Capetonians are still dismayed at the news of Hart not making his way to the Mother City, tweeps were left shocked at the hefty ticket price tag.

The early bird ticket sale officially opened on Wednesday, November 30. Standard tickets range from R790.00 ( Wheelchair/ Accessibility Seating only) to 4 000.00, while VIP tickets range from R5 050.00 to R 17 820.00.
