Chance the Rapper is one of the hip-hop world’s most bankable live acts. In 2017, he secured a place on Pollstar‘s Year End Top 100 Worldwide Tours chart with $21.4 million grossed and 445,184 tickets sold. The rapper has headlined numerous festivals, including Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, and recent boxoffice highlights include 2017 two-night stands at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, where he sold 33,140 tickets and grossed $2.1 million, and at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, where he sold 18,533 tickets and grossed $1.1 million.
Chance the Rapper released his latest project, The Big Day, in late July, and announced an arena tour to go along with it. Originally scheduled to begin earlier this month, Chance postponed nearly all of the dates to early 2020, in order to spend time with his family. Two dates remain untouched, at Chicago’s United Center (Sept. 28) and Miami’s Miami Beach Pop Festival; the rest of his tour begins on Jan. 15 at Pechenga Arena in San Diego.
