Chance The Rapper Announces his long-awaited debut Australian tour

Riding a tidal wave of acclaim and praise, Chicago-native, CHANCE THE RAPPER will play his very first Australian headline shows this January.

Already announced for Field Day and Beyond The Valley festivals, Chance brings his vibrant rhymes and jazz-tinged, retro beats to Sydney’s Big Top on January 3 before taking over Melbourne’s Festival Hall the following evening – January 4.

Breaking through with 2013’s Acid Rap, Chance built his reputation one mix tape at a time, attracting an ever-growing audience and big-name fans along the way.

2016 saw the surprise release of Colouring Book, an independently released, streaming only mix tape featuring Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Future.

Critically acclaimed and played more than 57 millions times, it’s the first album to crack the Billboard Charts on streams alone, peaking at number 8, a stunning end result for a kid who recorded his first mix tape #10Day while suspended from high school.

Currently one of hip-hops most sought after collaborators, Chance is responsible for five tracks off Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo including ‘Famous’ and ‘Ultralight Beam’ as well guest appearances with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lil B and Skrillex.

Kanye said it best when describing Chance “we are standing in front of the future”.
