Chance The Rapper Delays Tour to Focus on Being a Husband and Father

Just days after welcoming second daughter into his family, the ‘No Problem’ rapper apologizes to fans for pushing back his ‘The Big Day’ trek to mid-January 2020.

New dad Chance The Rapper has postponed his upcoming tour so he can spend more time at home with his family.

“The Big Day” trek was scheduled to begin later this week (September 14) in San Francisco, California, but the hip hop star isn’t ready to hit the road after becoming a dad to baby daughter Marli last month.

“I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour,” he told fans on Monday in an Instagram post beneath a photo of his family. “I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising (daughters) Kensli and Marli.

“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. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th.”

Promoters at Live Nation have also announced the news, stating: “We congratulate Chance on the birth of his daughter and support him while he takes time to be with his family. We are thrilled to welcome him back on the road in 2020.”

The updated tour now begins on January 15 in San Diego, California.

Meanwhile, Chance was back onstage in his native Chicago, Illinois on Sunday morning when he joined Kanye West for his fellow rap star’s weekly Sunday Service gospel gathering.
