Though he won’t appear live and in-person with his fans to celebrate the holidays, this Friday (12.18) Chance The Rapper will host “Chi-Town Christmas,” a surprise virtual concert.
Chance’s YouTube and Instagram, as well as Oculus Quest’s Venues app will provide access to the event, with Oculus stating, “Chance the Rapper gifts the world a performance for the holidays showcasing the Grammy-winning performer moving through generations of television, culminating with a live band performance for the holidays.”
Along with the announcement, Chance dropped a teaser video on Twitter of what’s to come:
Not the first time Chance has been an integral part of holiday events, the Chicago native teamed up with Jeremih for their Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama mixtape in 2016 which the musician’s continued to revisit in subsequent years with recently added songs, including “Are U Live” and “The Return” from Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving.
