Chance the Rapper is returning to NYC this fall

Andrew Frisicano

If you were wondering, Chance the Rapper is having a good week.

The young Chicago MC—fresh off winning 2017 BET Humanitarian Award, in which he was introduced by Michelle Obama—has announced shows in NYC and LA for this fall. He'll play Forest Hills Stadium on Tuesday, September 26 with Francis & the Lights and DJ Oreo opening. Tickets go on sale today at 5pm.

It'll be the second NYC gig for the artist this year: He recently visited to headline Governors Ball, bringing along his band the Social Experiment and delivering one of the best sets of the festival (his opener, Francis, also made our list).

The NYC show and his October 3 and 4 shows at the Hollywood Bowl are just some of the dates on his ongoing “Be Encouraged Tour.” He'll also play Lollapalooza in August and Austin City Limits in October.
