Chance the Rapper is moving The Big Day tour to 2020. 

Chance shared the following message with his fans on Monday, September 9.

I thought it over for the past week and I've decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work. When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most. At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can't make that mistake again. I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising 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.

The new dates will kick off January 15, 2020, in San Diego, CA and make stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Toronto, New York and more, before wrapping February 24 in Milwaukee, WI.

Tickets for the rescheduled dates are available for purchase now at chanceraps.com/tour.

Life Is Beautiful, iHeartRadio Music Festival, and Miami Beach Pop Festival will play as scheduled. 

Fans who purchased tickets to all other 2019 dates should retain their current tickets as they will be valid for the rescheduled 2020 dates. For those unable to attend the new dates, refunds will be available at point of purchase.
