Chance The Rapper is currently across the pond on the European leg of his Magnificent Coloring World Tour, which was due to conclude this month with two shows in Dublin, Ireland, and one in Manchester, England, but according to reports those dates have been postponed.
According to MCD, who were promoting the pair of shows at Dublin’s Helix, Chance postponed the shows due to “personal reasons” after news broke about Kanye West being hospitalized in Los Angeles. The Ticketmaster site confirms the cancellations; the dates have also disappeared from Chance’s website. He’ll return to Europe in 2017, according to MCD’s Facebook post .
“It is with regret that Chance the Rapper has to cancel the remainder of his European tour due to personal reasons,” the post, which is included below, reads. “These are 2 shows at the Helix in Dublin and 1 show at the Apollo in Manchester. He sends his apologies for this and looks forward to returning to Europe in 2017. Refunds are available from point of purchase.”
While in London, Chance spoke to BBC’s Trevor Nelson and extended a prayer to Kanye West, who canceled 21 dates of his own Saint Pablo tour before being hospitalized for sleep deprivation.
“I want to extend a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West. I know there’s a lot of weird folks out there but you already know that I’m a hundred grand,” Chance said. “I want to just extend this prayer and this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this man. Happy Thanksgiving.”
