Chance The Rapper cancels European Festival shows

We're beginning to think it's personal
Chance The Rapper has cancelled his planned European Festival shows this year, including shows at Øya in Oslo, Way Out West in Gothenburg, HAVEN in Copenhagen, and Pukkelpop in Hasselt.

According to a statement released on the Way Out West festival website, the rapper has cancelled due to “scheduling conflicts beyond his control.” Potentially for recording his new album, perhaps?

The full statement says, “It is with regret that Chance the Rapper has to cancel his upcoming performance at Way Out West and his European festival tour in August. This is due to scheduling conflicts beyond his control. Chance sends his apologies to his fans and looks forward to returning to Europe soon.”

This is the second time in the last year that Chance has cancelled European dates, with shows last year being cancelled due to “personal reasons”. Can we blame Brexit for this also?
