Chance The Rapper thrilled fans in Europe with news that an upcoming tour would bring the popular American star to their lands. However, Chance won’t be able to make those tour stops due to scheduling conflicts.
Chance The Rapper’s current North American Be Encouraged tour runs through the middle of June and was scheduled to hit a series of festivals in Europe in support of his Coloring Book project. In a statement, Chance explained why he had to drop the dates. One of those dates was the Way Out West Festival in Sweden, which issued a statement on Chance’s behalf.
From Way Out West:
“It is with regret that Chance the Rapper has to cancel his upcoming performance at Way Out West and his European festival tour in August. This is due to scheduling conflicts beyond his control. Chance sends his apologies to his fans and looks forward to returning to Europe soon.”
The other festivals that were canceled were Oslo, Norway’s Oya Festival, and Belgium’s Pukklepop. Another show at Denmark’s HAVEN was also canceled.
This is the second time within a year that Chance has canceled European dates. Hopefully, those fans get makeup dates in the near future.
