Fans of Chance the Rapper will have to wait a little while longer to see his new tour.

He's pushing back the tour to spend time with his new baby and wife, after stating in an Instagram post he regretted missing some big moments in his first daughter's life while he was on tour.

"When Kensli was born, I went on tour 2 weeks later and missed some of the most important milestones in her life, but more importantly I was absent when her mother needed me the most," the rapper said. "At this point as a husband and father of two I realize that I can’t make that mistake again. 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 you’ll understand and forgive me in time."

The new tour dates kick off on January 15, though the Tampa date has not been announced yet.

If you are unable to attend the new date or would like to attend a different date, tickets purchased can be refunded at the point of sale, the tour website says.
