Chance the Rapper has delayed his tour in support of The Big Day until January. The Chicago native made the final call to postpone the start on Monday (Sept. 9), just days shy of the trek's first show, which was slated to hit San Francisco on Sept. 14.

"I thought it over for the past week and Iíve decided to push back my tour," he wrote. "I need to be as helpful and available as possible to my wife in these early months of raising Kensli and Marli. I apologize because I know how many people were counting on seeing me soon, but I hope youíll understand and forgive me in time. Tour kicks off Jan. 15th."

With the North American tour being pushed back until 2020, fans will be given the opportunity to obtain full refunds. Dates are still waiting to be rescheduled in locations such as Ottawa, Newark, Omaha, Tulsa, Tampa, St. Louis and St. Paul.
