Chance The Rapper Cancels More Shows Due to Illness

Last weekend, Chance The Rapper was scheduled to hit Coachella, but was unable to perform after falling ill around the time of his set. Now, we get a more detailed explanation (via an official statement) of why Chance was unable to play his set for the packed-out Coachella crowd, saying:

“Last Friday, April 18, 2014, Chancelor Bennett PKA Chance the Rapper came down with a high fever and was experiencing difficulty breathing. Upon arriving at the Coachella music festival that day, he requested that he be brought home to rest for two days before his appearance at the festival onSunday afternoon. He spent the night and Saturday in bed with assistance from his family whom had been in Los Angeles area at the time.

Upon rising on Sunday morning, Chance was running a 104 degree fever and could not speak due to the inflammation of his throat. He was rushed to Hollywood Presbyterian hospital where he was put on an IV drip and medicines were introduced to help control his body temperature and pain caused by his illness.

Chance has since returned to his home in L.A. and is recovering. His doctors have come to the conclusion that this illness was caused by a combination of the flu virus and tonsillitis. Chance is due to see a specialist this week to determine whether or not surgery is required.

The CTR team, in accordance with Chance, his family and doctors, have cancelled the remainder of this week’s shows, 4/23 – 4/27. We appreciate your concern and prayers.”

This statement came after Chance tweeted about feeling sick after a show he had last Friday in Las Vegas. He went on to say he had two days to recover, and that his recovery time would allow him to perform at Coachella. A few days after, Chance’s management tweeted:

“On behalf of @chancetherapper and our entire team- We sincerely regret to have to cancel our 2nd weekend at coachella.”

Sheesh. The spring-to-summer weather transition can be vicious, so let’s wish Chance a smooth recovery.
