Comedian Tracy Morgan plans to return to Nashville next week to apologize to audience members who were offended by an anti-gay rant during a stand-up show on June 3.

During the performance, the "30 Rock" actor told the audience that if his son were gay, he would "pull out a knife and stab" him.

Morgan already has issued a public apology, saying he went too far, even for a comedy show.
