Chicago rap star, Chance the Rapper has canceled the 2020 run of his Big Tour. The show was originally scheduled to hit the Frank Erwin Center on Oct. 24, but was moved to Jan. 23 in September, after the birth of his second daughter.

“I know it sucks and its been a lot of back and forth with reschedules and rerouting, but it’s for the best. I’m gonna take this time to be with family, make some new music and develop my best show to date,” the 26-year-old hip-hop artist wrote on Instagram on Sunday.

According to a representative from the Erwin Center, customers who purchased tickets using a credit card either online or by phone through Texas Box Office will be automatically refunded. For all other ticket refunds, fans should return to their original point of purchase.
