One of the most anticipated shows of the Milwaukee fall concert season has been postponed.
Chance The Rapper announced today he is pushing back his entire “The Big Day” tour to focus on his family.
The Milwaukee show is now scheduled for Feb. 24 at Fiserv Forum.
If you’ve already bought tickets, the venue says no action is needed, and it will honor original tickets for the Oct. 30 date. For those unable to attend the new date, refunds will be available at point of purchase, according to the venue.
It also added “we fully support your decision,” tagging the rapper on Instagram.
Chance The Rapper wrote the following heartfelt message to fans:
“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. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th and you can still get tix or your refund if you are unavailable at chanceraps.com & a few of the shows are still being rescheduled as well so stay tuned. I love you guys AND LITERALLY CANT WAIT FOR U TO WITNESS THIS SHOW 🙏🏾🙏🏾”
