There isn't much Chance The Rapper hasn't done over the past two years. From nabbing seven GRAMMY nominations as an independent artist to reaching No. 1 at Urban radio, the Chicago native has checked career boxes left and right. However, despite touring nationwide, to date, Chance has never headlined an arena tour.
For an interview feature with Chance's manager Pat Corcoran, Billboard writer Rebecca Haithcoat spoke with booking agent Cara Lewis—Chance's agent since 2012—who indicated the 23-year-old emcee will soon check off that box, too.
“Our first date paid 500 dollars. Now Chance is headlining all the major festivals and will embark on a 40-city arena tour.”
Isaiah Rashad, Skepta & Sarkodie: Best of the Week
Isaiah Rashad, Skepta, Sarkodie all released new songs that were selected for Audiomack’s ‘Best of the Week.’
As of press time, no further information about the tour or the tour dates has been made available. But given Chance's performance track record, which includes selling out U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago last year for his Magnificent Coloring Day event, this news should come as no surprise.
While we all await further details, be sure to circle Sunday, February 12 on your calendar. It was announced this morning (February 2), that Chance will perform for the first time at the 59th annual GRAMMY Awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
