Chance the Rapper

Chance the Rapper performs at the CenturyLink Center Omaha on May 10, 2017.

Chance the Rapper has postponed his Omaha concert.

Scheduled for Oct. 27 at CHI Health Center Omaha, the show will be made up at a later date, which has not yet been announced.

The breakout rap star announced the postponement on Instagram, and it included other stops on the tour.

“I thought it over for the past week and I’ve decided to push back my tour. This year has been one of the greatest of my life; Marriage, new baby, first album etc. But with it being so eventful it has also been very strenuous having to divide my time and energy between family and work,” Chance the Rapper said on Instagram.

Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase.

His new album, “The Big Day,” is all about love, and it’s centered on the rap sensation’s recent marriage and features guest appearances from Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, John Legend, Nicki Minaj and lots more.

It has received glowing reviews, much like his previous release, “Coloring Book.”

“Coloring Book” provided the smooth-tongued Chicago rapper with his breakout. The 2016 album won three Grammys, sent him on a sold-out tour (which stopped in Omaha), landed him a hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live” and made him a Lollapalooza headliner.
