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.
The concert’s abandonment leaves his fans disappointed
The performer publicized his unavailability on Sunday via an Instagram post. Through his post, the rapper apologized to his fans and explained that he is taking the time to be with family, create new music and develop “his best show to date.”
“I know it sucks and it’s been a lot of back and forth with reschedules and rerouting, but it’s for the best,” he said in the post.
Chance the rapper, who hosted this October’s Saturday Night Live’s episode for the second time, had previously rescheduled The Big Tour which was about to commence in September this year. The postponement was only due to the birth of his second daughter as per the sources.
Earlier this year, the rapper posted on Instagram on his rescheduled event where he announced a 2-for-1 ticket sale for tour dates. But now, the artist seems like he’s in no mood to make way to his concert anytime soon as he yearns to create more music for his fans and give some more time to his growing family.
The ones who commented on his post not only showed their disappointment due to the matter of the fact of rapper’s unavailability to the concert but also supported him for such a decision made by him.
Promises to make a comeback anytime soon
“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.” This is what he said in concluding the message in his Instagram post.
