Chance The Rapper just posted a picture of his passport on Instagram. Inside the passport was a boarding pass that indicated that he was taking a flight from Chicago to Dublin, Ireland. His caption read: "I'm about to get on a plane to Europe for the first time. Play 90,000 people a night with Kendrick [Lamar] and Eminem. I'm just havin fun with it."
According to the Shady Records website, Chance is one of several opening acts for Eminem as he performs several spot dates overseas. Em's three spot dates are August 17 at Slane Castle, Dublin, August 20 at the Glasgow Summer Session in Scottland, and August 22 at the Stade De France in France.
Chance and EarlWolf (Tyler, The Creator, and Earl Sweatshirt) will be performing on all three of Eminem's shows in Europe. Yelawolf will be performing on the first two dates, while Kendrick will be performing on the last two dates. Meanwhile, Slaughterhouse will be performing on the first and last shows, meaning that Kendrick will cross paths with two of the rappers who have responded to his verse on "Control," Joell Ortiz and Joe Budden.
Meanwhile, this continues a hectic touring schedule for Chance in the wake of the widespread success of Acid Rap, which has now charted on Billboard despite being a free release. After joining Mac Miller on his Space Migration Tour across the United States, Chance will now spend a significant amount of time abroad. Following his dates with Eminem, he will be accompanying Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on their Fall World Tour.
