Fresh off his triple Grammy win, Chance announced a North American tour from April to June 2017.
Following his spectacular win at last weekend’s Grammy Awards, rising hip-hop star Chance the Rapper is capitalising by announcing a string of live dates in North America for this spring – but is not calling in at his home city of Chicago!
Taking to Instagram to share the love on Valentine’s Day, the prodigiously young rapper posted a picture of the tour dates, which takes in 35 dates across the United States and Canada. Beginning on April 24th in San Diego and winding up nearly two months later on June 17th, he’ll also be playing one huge show in October in Los Angeles. However, there'll be no grand homecoming show in Chicago, much to the disappointment of his legions of loyal fans.
Part of the caption for the photograph read: “thank YOU GUYS for everything”. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 7pm E.T. on Tuesday (February 14th).
It caps off a terrifically successful weekend for the 23 year old star, as he walked away with three prizes at the 59th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (February 12th) – Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance.
Chance also brought the house down with a well-executed medley of three tracks from his prize-winning mixtape album Coloring Book, fusing together ‘All We Got’, ‘No Problem’ and ‘Blessings’ with the help of a gospel choir.

“I know people think that independence means you do it by yourself,” Chance said in his acceptance speech for Best New Artist. “But independence means freedom.”
Later this year, Chance The Rapper is also tapped to perform at a number of festivals, including the Governor’s Ball, Boston Calling, Firefly and others.
