Rapper Big Sean shared a bittersweet announcement for fans this evening. While fans can get excited that Big Sean is currently in a deep creative space, while he works on new music in the studio, as a result the GOOD Music artist has postponed his forthcoming “Unfriendly Reminder” tour.
The tour, with Playboi Carti and more, was originally set to kick off in April, with a number of dates throughout North America through June. We will keep fans posted if Big Sean announces new dates.
Check out Big Sean’s official announcement via Twitter below.
Big Sean will embark on his biggest headlining tour yet, moving from large club venues to some of the biggest amphitheaters and arenas across North America this spring.
Kicking his “Unfriendly Reminder” Tour off on Thursday, April 12th at Orlando’s CFE Arena, Big Sean will make stops in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Phoenix, Brooklyn, Detroit and many more, until the tour concludes on June 3rd in Toronto.
Live Nation pre-sale tickets will go on sale Thursday, February 8th at 10AM (local time), while tickets will go on-sale for the general public on Friday, February 9th at 10AM atLiveNation.com.
And to make the tour extra special for fans, Big Sean will curate the tour’s setlist based on fan votes. Each fan will be able to choose their top 20 songs (for their respective city) to help Big Sean select his setlist for each night. Voting begins Thursday, February 8th at UKNOWBIGSEAN.com.

Music fans in Chicago were in for a treat last night as MetroPCS and Pandora brought Big Sean to Park West in Chicago for their Sounds of Chicago event. With free drinks and food from some of the city’s best spots, a photo booth, tons of free swag and a DJ to warm up the crowd, the night was set for Big Sean to close things out with a full 18-song performance.
Repping a killer Dennis Rodman jersey, Big Sean got the crowd moving with his I Decided track ‘Moves’, which he then followed up with tracks like ‘Paradise’, ‘No Favors’ and his stand out GOOD Music verses on ‘Mercy’ and ‘Clique’. Early on Big Sean also took time to thank the sponsors for bringing him back to one of his favorite cities in the world, where he also had to give a big shoutout to Harold’s Chicken.
Only a few months removed from his memorable performance at Lollapalooza, Big Sean could have easily mailed in his performance. After all, since it was an entirely free show for fans, everyone would have left with their money’s worth. However Big Sean brought the energy and hits that come with one of his tour dates, but in a much more intimate setting, making for a great and unique experience for all of those lucky enough to attend. Chicago fans already can’t wait for Big Sean or Pandora to return for another memorable performance.
Check out our photos from last night’s performance below.
For another straight year, Lollapalooza did not disappoint for its sold out crowd.

Fans enjoyed headlining performances from artists like Chance The Rapper, The Killers, Arcade Fire and MUSE, while also catching sets from some of the most exciting newcomers in music today.
And from Thursday afternoon to Sunday night, we have compiled our list of some of the most memorable moments we will have to look back on from Lolla 2017.

Some people just ruin things for everyone. While Big Sean was nice enough to hold a meet and greet at FYE in New York for his fans, to celebrated the release of physical copies of his #1 album, I Decided., a “fan” decided to take that opportunity to assault Big Sean.
While we aren’t positive if the meet and greet was cut short due to the altercation, it appears as such from the video that another fan recorded of the assaulting fan’s arrest. No word as to why the man slapped Big Sean, but he definitely took an “L” for ruining the album signing for everyone else.
While we aren’t aware of many Ls that Big Sean has took (aside from his abstinence rap from his childhood), he is certainly bouncing back in 2017. Big Sean has one of the hottest rap singles out right now, he is a couple weeks away from the release of his next studio album, I Decided., he’s dating the lovely and talented Jhene Aiko, and he will soon embark on his big headlining tour.
But that’s not all, as last night Big Sean made his Saturday Night Live debut, with a memorable performance of his hit single. Week after week, Big Sean is cashing in these Ws, and with no signs of stopping.
Watch Big Sean perform ‘Bounce Back’ on Saturday Nigh Live below.
