Kevin Hart To Make History When He Headlines Lincoln Financial Field

By Ray Boyd

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Kevin Hart, one of the prides of our great city, has smashed record after record in terms of his comedy tours over the years. Hart has toured several times and has visited a number of venues. He will be pulling off a "first," this summer when he returns to his hometown.

Last week it was announced that Hart would be performing the first ever comedy show at Lincoln Financial Field.

On Sunday, August 30th, Hart will become the first comedian to headline at an NFL stadium.

Hart has performed at the Wells Fargo Center which seats right around 20,000 people, but this summer he will perform at the Linc which can hold around 68,000.

The Eagles sent out a picture following the announcement to perhaps motivate Hart as he gets ready to come home for one of his biggest live shows ever.

The show is a part of the "What Now? Tour," which will take Hart to 45 North American cities.

Hopefully Hart will wear the Eagles jersey on the night of the performance. It will certainly get the crowd on his side.
