Chance the Rapper will not perform at Splendour In The Grass. Instead of appearing at his scheduled Splendour In The Grass show today, he is still home in America.
Chance The Rapper’s sudden withdrawal from Splendour In The Grass has pissed off his Australian fans. The lack of detail in the cancellation and the forced juggle of the Splendour headline spot has fans angry for good reason.
A short statement for Chance The Rapper says, “It is with great regret we announce that Chance The Rapper will not be coming to Australia to perform at Splendour in the Grass. Unfortunately, due to illness he is unable to fly.”
We have received news that Chance the Rapper is no longer able to make it to Aus for #SITG2019 due to illness. We wish Chance a speedy recovery. We are beyond stoked to announce that with just 24 hours notice, the @hilltophoods are on their way to #SITG2019! pic.twitter.com/FLol6nQe0D
