Coachella: Chance the Rapper Hospitalized, Sunday Set Canceled

The artist was admitted to the hospital on Sunday for an unspecified illness and "is expected to make a full recovery," his management said.

Chance the Rapper has been hospitalized and will miss his Coachella set at the festival’s closing day.

The rising Chicago rapper — who last weekend brought out Justin Bieber for a guest performance during his set — was scheduled to perform Sunday at 3:10 on the main stage. But hours before his set, a photo of Chance in a hospital bed was posted to his Instagram account (and later apparently deleted).

Chance had tweeted Friday night he wasn’t feeling well, following a show in Las Vegas, but said he’d have a full recovery in time for his Coachella set. His management followed up on his Twitter account after posting the Instagram picture to announce his cancelation:

On behalf of @chancetherapper and our entire team- We sincerely regret to have to cancel our 2nd weekend at coachella. -CTR MGMT
