CU’s Cultural Events Board has postponed Common’s Tuesday night appearance. A new date has not yet been announced.

The board said the rapper, actor, author and activist will still come to campus to share his thoughts about spoken-word performance. All previously purchased tickets will be honored, and any rescheduling info will be available on the CEB website, Facebook and Twitter, as well as the CU events calendar.

Since his first album, Can I Borrow A Dollar?, was released in 1992, Common has developed a reputation as one of the most poetic and socially conscious lyricists in hip hop. He’s won two Grammys and five BET Awards, and he’s been nominated for dozens of other honors. Common’s memoir, One Day It’ll All Make Sense, hit shelves this past September.
