Citi card members can purchase presale tickets until 10 p.m. Aug. 1 at A limited number of LaneOne Premium Packages will be available, including floor access, reserved seats, transportation, preferred entrance and more. For details, visit

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.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
