WHO HAS CANCELLED ALL DATES
FROM APRIL 23-27
DUE TO ILLNESS
RIFF RAFF is the latest addition to the line-up for this week’s COUNTERPOINT MUSIC & ARTS FESTIVAL–Friday, April 25, Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27. RIFF RAFF will fill the performance slot previously held by the Chance The Rapper, who has cancelled all appearances from April 23-27.
A statement from his management team says that Chancelor Bennett AKA Chance The Rapper was hospitalized and is now recovering at his Los Angeles home. “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.”
