Sandler announces 25-date comedy tour

Adam Sandler is going back on the road!

The comedian, 57, announced on social media today that he’ll be embarking on a comedy tour in North America from October to December, with 25 dates in total throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The run of shows, titled the I Missed You Tour, is set to kick off Oct. 12 in Vancouver.

“Let’s have some fun,” Sandler captioned an Instagram trailer, which included clips of him playing the guitar, taking some crowd selfies at a handful of shows and getting plenty of laughs.

The latest run of shows follows the Uncut Gems actor’s Adam Sandler LIVE gigs, which concluded in April. The I Missed You Tour — which is produced by Live Nation — features stops in Portland, San Jose, Toronto, Memphis, Salt Lake City, Rochester, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, and beyond — with a final date on Dec. 12 in Denver.

Live Nation ticket presale kicks off at 12pm tomorrow, with a Ticketmaster general sale starting at 12 pm local time.

Actor Pauly Shore shared his excitement under Sandler’s Instagram post with the comment, “Daaaaa Sand man is back boom boom broozzz.”

Sandler’s tour announcement arrives shortly after he and his family starred in the Netflix teen filmYou Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, which followed the crew as they navigated planning the perfect bat mitzvah.

Adam and wife Jackie Sandler’s daughters — Sunny, 14, and  Sadie, 17 — play the roles of two teens as the film “chronicles the high comedy and modern teen angst that comes with family, friendship, and first crushes,” per a synopsis.

“What’s really funny is right before we started prepping for the film, Sunny had her actual bat mitzvah,” director Sammi Cohen told PEOPLE in August of the film.

“So I went to that service, and we got to do the real-life bat mitzvah and then left to make the movie. It was a really fun life movie moment.”

“It was really, really fun. And it was, again, it was just such a perfect moment of life meets movie. It was just magical.”

In March, Sandler was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

The honor came as  Jennifer Aniston, Chris Rock, Pete Davidson, and more toasted the Saturday Night Live alum for his decades in show business.

Rob Schneider also shared a few kind words with his friend at the event, while performing a rendition of Sandler’s “Grow Old With You” from The Wedding Singer soundtrack.

“Nobody gave Adam Sandler his success. Adam earned this through his hard work in a really tough business, show business,” Schneider said.

“People ask me: why does Adam put me in so many movies? And it’s because he wants to laugh and share his tremendous success with his friends, plus I will do really humiliating s— that he won’t do.”

“Adam is a very generous guy,” David Spade also shared. “He has hired his whole family tree to work for him. The call sheet looks like”

Sandler thanked his friends and family when collecting his award after several hilarious speeches, noting that “everybody was great.”

“I feel like everyone who came and spoke up there, I think we all truly love each other,” he said.

“We have each other’s backs for life. People always would ask me those bad reviews you get, how does that make you feel, like s—? It really doesn’t. I think the reason I get to say it didn’t hurt me is because so many of you guys in this room made me feel great about what we’ve done together.”
