Chance the Rapper bringing ‘The Big Day’ tour to Pittsburgh
Chance the Rapper has an Oct. 6 tour date at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.
The Grammy Award-winning rapper will be touring in support of his debut studio album, “The Big Day,” released July 26.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning at 10 a.m. Aug. 2 at chanceraps.com/tour.
Citi card members can purchase presale tickets until 10 p.m. Aug. 1 at citientertainment.com. A limited number of LaneOne Premium Packages will be available, including floor access, reserved seats, transportation, preferred entrance and more. For details, visit laneone.com.
In 2017, Chance became the first artist to win a Grammy without selling physical copies of his music. The Chicago native, born Chancelor Jonathan Bennett, built his reputation by dropping his songs online for free and remaining unsigned by a label.
He won Grammys for best new artist, best rap album, and best rap performance a year after the Grammy governing board decided to allow nomination of albums released only on streaming services.
Songs on “The Big Day” were inspired by the rapper’s wedding to his longtime girlfriend, which took place earlier this year in California.
The 35-stop “Big Day” tour opens Sept. 14 in San Francisco and wraps up Nov. 10 in Miami.
