Updated, Monday, September 9, 2019: Chance the Rapper's Phoenix show has been rescheduled to Sunday, January 19, 2020. Per the post on his official Instagram account:

"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"

Our original story begins here:

Were you listening to Chance the Rapper’s The Big Day all weekend?

The heartfelt record came out last Friday to critical acclaim. His studio debut was inspired by the Chicago-based rapper’s emotional wedding day, which took place in California last spring. The debut studio album features appearances from a diverse lineup of musicians, including Randy Newman (yes, the Toy Story composer), Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, and rapper Nicki Minaj.

Now you can raise your glass to celebrate with the Acid Rap artist. The GRAMMY award-winner comes to Gila River Arena in Glendale on Sunday, September 22, as part of a 35-stop tour. If you are a Citi credit card member, you can purchase tickets from today until Thursday, August 1 at 10 p.m. Arizona time. Visit citientertainment.com for details.

If you looking to upgrade your experience, there are a limited number of premium packages available for sale from LaneOne. Check here for details.
