It's a bad week for gig cancellations as it's been announced that Chance the Rapper has cancelled his forthcoming Dublin gigs.
The hip-hop star was due to play two sold-out gigs at Dublin's Helix venue tonight and Friday, but has cancelled the remainder of his European tour - the two Dublin gigs and a date in Manchester - due to 'personal reasons'.
Promoters MCD issued a statement late last night, saying:
"It is with regret that Chance the Rapper has to cancel the remainder of his European tour due to personal reasons. These are 2 shows at the Helix in Dublin and 1 show at the Apollo in Manchester. He sends his apologies for this and looks forward to returning to Europe in 2017. Refunds are available from point of purchase."
