Tyler Perry's Madea's Farewell Play Tour will begin Jan. 18 in Oakland, Calif.

The four-month, nationwide road trip will include January stops in Phoenix, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

More date and city details are expected to be released soon, Live Nation said in a press release.

This will be the actor and filmmaker's 21st stage play.

The live comedy will co-star Tamela Mann, David Mann and Cassi Davis.

Perry announced last month that he is retiring his outrageous character with a new play and a movie called "Madea's Family Funeral," which will be released by Lionsgate on March 1.
