The Chicago rapper pulls The Big Plug on The Big Tour.
Following a series of postponements and delays, Chance The Rapper has officially canceled The Big Tour.
In an Instagram post this afternoon, Chance announced the cancelation, apologizing to fans and promising to “come back much stronger and better in 2020.” The Big Tour was initially announced in the weeks following the release of the Chicago rapper’s “debut” album The Big Day with an intended mid-September launch.
By the time September crept in, Chance and his wife welcomed their second child, sparking the tour’s first delay to the end of the month. Eventually, September had come and gone and Chance had only performed the tour’s hometown set, rescheduling the rest of the shows for early 2020. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Chance explained his decision to take a brief paternity leave, citing the difficulty of being on the road with a newborn at home.

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.
