If you were hoping to see a big rap show this fall, here’s your chance… er, I mean, this your big day... no, wait, isn’t there any uncorny way to say this?
OK, let’s stick to facts. Chance the Rapper. Xcel Energy Center. Tuesday, October 29. Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 2, at 10 a.m. at the Xcel box office or online at Ticketmaster.
Last Friday, Chance dropped his “debut” album, The Big Day, which also happens to be his sixth album. That’s because his previous albums were classified as “mixtapes.” Confused? Probably not as much as Randy Newman was to find himself on the album’s crazy guest list.
Critics are divided over the new album, as critics will be. Sounded great on my JBL Clip while I was biking to the Cardi show on Saturday, but I gotta listen a couple more times before I’m ready to give my professional opinion. I will say that Chance put on a great show at the Xcel in 2017. In fact, I did say that.
Also, I wonder what this kid is up to today.
