Chance the Rapper’s marquee year of 2019 is still going strong after he dropped his much-anticipated debut studio album, The Big Day, in the summer.
Following his first official major release, Chance had big plans for it, including embarking on a tour. Unfortunately, it seems his planned excursion has been plagued by a series of postponements and delays. Initially slated for mid-September, The Big Tour was postponed to the top of 2020.
However, Chance said that he’d be centering his focus on spending time with his family, particularly following the birth of his second baby girl, Marli. The rescheduled tour was supposed to kick off in January, but on Sunday (Dec. 15), Chance came bearing more unfortunate news for his fans.
In an update posted to his Instagram, the 26-year-old informed his 10 million followers that he was opting to cancel the tour, stating, “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 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.”
The Coloring Book rap artist concluded the post with an apology and promise to his fans that he will be back “stronger and better in 2020” for his fans. Read the rest of his sentiments in full below.
