Conan O’Brien Announces Music/Comedy Tour (Too Bad NO Dates in NC)

Ever since Conan O’Brien was unceremoniously kicked off “The Tonight Show” stage, there’s been a certain missing feeling going around– a feeling Jay Leno’s fast-food-fart of a return to the show did little to quell. But Team Coco can rejoice as the big-haired comedian is plotting a North American tour described as “a night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence” on its official site.

Rumors are that he could tour with Beck and/or The White Stripes, so stay tuned for updates…  Hopefully, he’ll add a North Carolina show in there after Bonnaroo, but don’t hold your breath.  Find out more after the jump.

Amazingly, the endeavor is called “The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.” (Conan’s $32.5 million payout from NBC included a stipulation that he can’t appear on TV until September 1, according to The New York Times.)

The show will reportedly feature sidekick Andy Richter and members of the “Tonight Show” band. And, considering Conan’s guitar skills and his ties with artists like the White Stripes (who performed on his last “Late Night”) and Beck (who performed on his last “Tonight Show”), we could be in for some very special musical moments along with the requisite lulz. Not to mention the fact that he’s playing Bonnaroo– who knows what could go down there.
