Chance the Rapper has pushed back his tour to be with his family.
The rapper took to Instagram where he announced that he will be postponing his The Big Day Tour until 2020.
“I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli,” the father of two said in part of his long caption. “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.”
And he said a lot more:

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 🙏🏾🙏🏾 SIDENOTE: 9/28 CHICAGO AT UNITED CENTER IS STILL ON AS WELL AS “LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL FEST” “IHEART MUSIC FEST” & “MIAMI BEACH POP FEST”! ❤️
His decision comes on the heels of him and his wife, Kirsten Bennett, welcoming their new daughter into the world. This is the couple’s second daughter and their first child since tying the knot in 2018.
