Chance the Rapper cancels tour

Chance the Rapper has cancelled his US arena tour, three months after initially postponing it. In September, he announced that the show was being moved from autumn to January 2020 because of the birth of his daughter, but now it stays cancelled for the time being.

The performer announced the decision in an Instagram post apologising to fans and explaining that he is taking the time to be with family, create new music and develop “my best show to date.”

The rapper’s daughter, Kensli was born in 2015 when his career was just starting to take off and while postponing the tour back in September, he wrote that he regrets missing some important milestones after the birth of his first daughter.

The Big Tour was due to visit venues in Las Vegas, Miami and Los Angeles. Chance announced the ambitious 35-date arena tour with Lil Yachty and Taylor Bennett performing as opening acts. Fans were widely disappointed, but expressed their support for the artists’ decision.

His debut studio album The Big Day wasn’t as well received by some but his third mixtape Coloring Book won a Grammy award for Best Rap Album in 2017 and was the first record to chart on the US Billboard 200 solely on streams.

Chance has now promised to come back “stronger and better” at some point in 2020. Everyone is surely going to be looking out for
