Chance the Rapper Sits Down with Gayle King on CBS This Morning to Discuss Forthcoming Concert Film + Headlining Summerfest Music FestivalPre-Sale Tickets Now Available for MAGNIFICENT COLORING WORLD, Out August 13 At Select AMC Theatres
Pre-sale tickets are now available for Chance the Rapper’s forthcoming concert film, Magnificent Coloring World, exclusively via AMC Theatres – the film is set to premiere in Los Angeles on August 13, followed by a New York premiere on August 14. Their historic partnership marks the first time an artist has independently distributed a film through AMC Theatres. Earlier today, Chance appeared on CBS This Morning with Gayle King to discuss the film and his upcoming headlining performance at Summerfest Music Festival on September 3. Head over to CBS and check out the interview HERE.
In 2017, on the heels of taking home 3 GRAMMY Awards for his mixtape ‘Coloring Book’, Chance the Rapper performed and filmed a secret concert for his biggest fans in Chicago. The film shares this never-before-seen footage for the first time on the big screen. Directed by Jake Shreier (Robot & Frank, Paper Towns), and featuring a stage and sound design like none other, Magnificent Coloring World is the movie and music ticket of the summer. Check out the trailer for Magnificent Coloring World HERE.
Staying true to his independent artistry, Chance led the editing process and is also self-distributing the film through his House of Kick's umbrella. The House of Kicks is the film house that has become home to Chance, creating an artistic pod where he is reimagining music, film, and virtual experiences.
In 2020, Chance – who hit #1 on the charts with his song “Holy” with Justin Bieber – adapted to stay-at-home orders and completely pivoted the concert experience. He created 11 unique virtual concerts, with Adweek declaring, “These performances redefine what it means to experience music remotely.” In December 2020, Chance released his critically-acclaimed virtual holiday concert film Chi-Town Christmas on YouTube and 3D on Oculus. An ode to Christmas, Chicago, and the miraculous recovery of Jeremih, Chi-Town Christmas is a beautifully shot concert film written and directed by Chance. The film received a "big thumbs up" from the legendary movie reviewer Richard Roeper for Chance's directorial debut.
