Chance the Rapper is putting his family first. The rapper took to Instagram where he announced that he will be postponing his The Big Day Tour until 2020.
"I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli," the father of two said in part of his long caption. "I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope you’ll understand and forgive me in time."
Chance's decision comes on the heels of him and his wife, Kirsten Bennett, welcoming their new daughter into the world. This is the couple's second daughter and their first child since tying the knot in 2018. Although Chance took time to apologize to his fans, those who support the rapper can understand the necessity of this brief break. This includes Live Nation, which is signed on to promote and produce the tour.
"We congratulate Chance on the birth of his daughter and support him while he takes time to be with his family," Live Nation said in a statement regarding the news. "We are thrilled to welcome him back on the road in 2020."
Chance will now hit the road starting in January of 2020 instead of this month. Due to the availability at the respective venues, the shows that were set to take place in 2019 will be rescheduled for later dates that have yet to be announced. Fans that have already bought tickets to the 2019 shows will still be able to attend the rescheduled performances. If these modified dates are don't work, refunds will be available at point of purchase.
