Opie and Anthony concert chronology

Opie and Anthony's Traveling Virus was the second of three comedy event series, concert tour starring comedians featured on Opie and Anthony, a talk radio show which airs on XM Satellite Radio. It is the second annual Traveling Virus tour, the first one occurring in 2006 in four different US cities.[1] At the debut 2007 show in Las Vegas, Nevada, seven additional shows were announced.[2]

Consistently throughout the 2007 tour, comedians were booed, following Bill Burr's Philadelphia incident in 2006. According to Opie this led to the 2008 full tour to canceled in favor of one final show held on August 2, 2008.[3] According to Opie and Anthony the tour was cancelled due to the crowd consistently booing new comedians off the stage.[4]

History[edit]

The tour was a goal of Opie and Anthony's since coming together as a radio talk duo in Long Island in the early 1990s.[citation needed] The tour was intended to reward the comedians that had been guesting on the show over the years, and to serve as a thank you to fans nationwide.[citation needed] They were finally able to present the tour in 2006 because of their terrestrial radio deal with CBS.
