After postponing dates on The Big Tour, Chance the Rapper has officially called-off the trek.
The outing was originally supposed to kick-off in September, however, he pushed back the tour to spend more time with his new baby daughter. It was postponed until January 15 and was set to stop in cities like Denver, New York, Nashville, Toronto, and Los Angeles, among others. Now, he’s pulled-the-plug on the entire trek, noting that he needs to focus on spending time with his family.
“Hey guys I’ve decided to cancel the Big Tour,” he said in a statement on social media over the weekend. “I know it sucks and it’s been a lot of back and forth with reschedules and rerouting, but it’s for the best. I’m gonna take this time to be with my family, make some new music and develop my best show to date.
“I’m deeply sorry to anyone with a ticket who has supported me this past decade by coming to a show and rocking out with me and I feel even worse for anyone who was planning on making this their first Chance concert.”
He promised that he’ll be back “much stronger and better in 2020.”
Ticketholders can seek refunds via point of purchase.
The tour was set to follow the release of his latest record, The Big Day. The LP, which dropped in July, was his “debut” studio record, following a handful of commercial mixtapes. It features family-centric tracks like “Do You Remember,” “Roo,” “5 Year Plan,” and “Found a Good One (Single No More.)”
