Almost everything that comes out of Chance the Rapper's camp seems to be good news, so you can forgive us if this is a little bit of a blow to anyone who was hoping of catching Chance in Europe this summer. The rapper recently kicked off a North American tour, which was supposed to head to Europe for a short four festival gig stint in early through mid August, but unfortunately that won't be happening anymore. This marks the second time in the last year that Chance has called off a planned UK/European tour.
The affected performances include appearances at Oya Festival in Oslo, Norway; Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg, Sweden; and Pukkelpop in Hasselt, Belgium; and Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Claus Meyer & Danish brewing company Mikkeller's HAVEN festival in Copenhagen, Denmark.
A statement about the cancellation reads, "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."
Hopefully, Chance is just gearing to get back into the studio and start working on his next album, which will be his first 'studio' LP. It's certainly sad news for attendees of the European festivals, but we guess something joyus will come out of the rapper's camp soon, and all will be forgotten.
