Nicki Minaj Cancels Tour Amid Public Backlash

Nicki Minaj

Minaj's upcoming tour's ticket sales are so abysmal that promoters and the rapper chose to cancel the entire North American leg of her NickiHndrxx tour, which was due to start next month with rapper Future, the New York Post reports.

The release of Queen has been a defining moment in Nicki Minaj's career. Instead, the tour will now kick off in Europe in February as planned.

The North American leg will now kick off in May 2019, although rapper Future will no longer tour with Minaj, Rolling Stone reported.

Minaj frequently engages with her fans on social media and drop the announcement on Twitter. "So now, I just simply don't have to time to rehearse, and be on the road, and give you guys the level of the show I need to give". The rapper said she's unsure if Future will be able to join her when she brings the tour to North America next May. But a report from Page Six says the real problem is ticket sales are low, with 1,000 to 5,000 tickets sold in arenas that hold around 20,000 people.

Hawaiian Islands on alert for possible Hurricane Lane impacts
Hurricane Lane, a major storm approaching Hawaii , is shown here in a NASA photograph taken on August 16, 2018. Workers at stores throughout the islands say they're bracing for an afternoon rush of people getting supplies.

Earlier Tuesday, the New York Post cited a Live Nation source as saying that ticket sales were "in the toilet". LA was 3,400 - for a 17,000 capacity venue - New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900.

But all is not lost for the Barbz and #FutureHive. Minaj is now scheduled to begin the North American leg in May 2019.

On the other hand, for the "Chun-Li" rapper who in recent weeks publicly lashed out against Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner for sabotaging Queen from the number one spot on the Billboard charts, lambasted a writer who tweeted a fair criticism of her artistry, feuded with Cardi B and delayed her album numerous times amongst other misfires, the news is especially troubling. Refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, with new Nicki Minaj on-sale details announced soon. There is no telling the outcome of Minaj's actions, but as you can see it has not turned out well thus far.
