Chance The Rapper has reclaimed thousands of tickets for resale ahead of his appearance at the Magnificent Coloring Day Festival.
Fact first reported that the rapper tweeted a picture of almost 2000 tickets that he was putting up for sale to fans. He had reclaimed them from people reselling them for their own profit.
“I took back almost 2k #MCD tix from f*ckboy scalpers and made them into physicals. And these are just floor seats,” he posted to Twitter.
NME reports that his Magnificent Coloring Day Festival will take place at the US Cellular Field in Chicago later this month (Sept. 24). Collaborators from his Coloring Book album including Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Young Thug will be performing alongside him, as well as Skrillex, Alicia Keys and John Legend. Tyler, The Creator and Philadelphian Lil Uzi Vert will also be performing.
Back in June, the rapper also announced his Magnificent Coloring Tour, which is slated to start this week and span the globe. Presales for the tour began the very same day (June 21) on his website and was officially announced through the Instagram account. The tour is slated to begin Sept. 15 and will run through North American cities until Oct. 21.

The Magnificent Coloring tour will hit major cities Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Detroit, Boston, New York, New Orleans, and Dallas, amongst others. In a tour tease, the rapper also announced that "special guests" will be brought onstage with him during the tour, which considering the extent of his contacts in the music industry could be anyone. The tour will also hit the Canadian cities of Ontario and Toronto.
