Chance the Rapper is always showing love to his hometown of Chicago.

While acting as grand marshal of the annual Bud Billiken Parade, Chance told fans he would host a free invitation-only concert in the city Saturday night.

"I’m handing out free tickets all day long," Chance told ABC 7. "I wanted to make sure I can identify all those teachers that support our youth and build our children up, all those fathers that are out here with their families, the cornerstones of their houses, bringing their families out—I want to make sure I can identify y'all so my people can get you some free tickets."

He handed out tickets during the parade and also tweeted out a list of locations where tickets were being distributed.

The concert was dubbed the Bud Billiken Bash and included surprises appearances by Future and Jeremih.
