Hey guys I’ve decided to cancel the Big Tour. I know it sucks and its 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 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. Thank you all for an amazing year, and a huge thanks to my team and family for being so strong through this whole year. I promise to come back much stronger and better in 2020 and hope to see some of you guys there. I truly love you and God bless.
Updated Dec. 16: Chance the Rapper has canceled the previously postponed his tour supporting new record The Big Day. This includes his Jan. 17 concert at Chase Center, which had already been bumped back from Sept. 14.
“I’m gonna take this time to be with family, make some new music and develop my best show to date,” Chance wrote in an Instagram post. “Thank you all for an amazing year, and a huge thanks to my team and family for being so strong through this whole year. I promise to come back much stronger and better in 2020 and hope to see some of you guys there.”
Chance the rapper had initially postponed there tour so that he could spend more time with his wife and young children. Other than a few TV appearances and his slot at Lollapalooza, the entire tour was rescheduled.
“This year has been one of the greatest of my life,” he wrote on Instagram in early September. “It has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli.”
Fans who bought tickets should return to the point of purchase for refunds.
