Chance the Rapper to host ‘Chi-town Christmas’ virtual concert and ugly sweater party this weekend

Cue the holiday drinks and ugly sweaters. This Friday, Chance the Rapper will host a special holiday concert film, dubbed Chi-town Christmas. 

Written and directed by Chance, the concert was filmed entirely in Chicago to pay homage to the rapper’s favorite family Christmas movies and TV sitcoms growing up, according to a press release. 

The one-hour virtual concert film will feature visuals and live performances of songs from Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving, Chance and Jeremih‘s recently-released holiday album.

Chi-town Christmas begins Friday, Dec. 18 at 9 p.m. and will be premiered in VR via the Oculus Quest’s Venues app, as well as on Chance’s YouTube channel and Instagram.

Join Chance the following day for his “Tis The Season To Dance: Ugly Sweater + Pants Party” featuring special performances from Chance’s viral Twitter friend, the legendary singer Dionne Warwick and 70’s R&B icons The O’Jays.

The party kicks off Saturday, Dec. 19th with a beginner-friendly yoga session from 11-12 p.m. ET featuring a live harp serenade, followed by a guided dance experience and live DJ set.
