Chance the Rapper is pushing back his "The Big Day" tour, which was scheduled for Oct. 20 at Enterprise Center. He and his wife just had their second daughter, and the rapper wants to spend time with his family during this period.
He explained on his Instagram when his first daughter was born, he went on tour immediately afterwards and missed key moments in her life. He wasn't willing to do that again.
Many of the concert dates have been rescheduled for 2020; the St. Louis date is expected to be rescheduled with a date to be announced later.
In the meantime, tickets for the St. Louis show will be automatically refunded if purchased online through Ticketmaster. All other tickets may be refunded through original point of purchase.

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”! ❤️
The new dates begin Jan. 15, 2020, in San Diego.
Chance the Rapper's new album is "The Big Day."
