Fresh off the release of his critically-acclaimed project Coloring Book, Chance the Rapper announced a number of dates for his Magnificent Coloring World Tour on Tuesday. The tour will begin on Sept. 15 in San Diego, and its North American leg will wrap up on Oct. 21 in San Francisco, with 19 total dates. The announcement only covers the first portion of the tour and dates for Europe and Australia are still on the way.
The ticket presale is slated to begin Tuesday at 10 a.m. via Chance's website. So far, there's no announcement of ticket costs, venue locations, or opening acts, although all this information is likely forthcoming. It's also unclear if this will strictly be a traditional tour or if it will borrow some elements from the Magnificent Coloring World Party that Chance threw in Chicago in May.
Chance's tour will be held in support of Coloring Book, which had a historic debut on the Billboard charts, becoming the first album to ever chart based off streams alone. It also spawned the popular single "No Problem," f/ Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. Chance has left his mark on the music industry since then, successfully petitioning the Grammys to allow streaming-only projects to be considered for awards.
