According to a press release, Minaj “has decided to reevaluate elements of production on the NickiHndrxx Tour… Nicki has decided to contribute more time to rehearsal ahead of the tour’s launch to make certain her fans get the absolute best quality show that they deserve.”
However, Page Six reports that a Live Nation source informed them ticket sales for the North American tour dates are poor. “Nicki’s tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist,” the source stated. “These are big arenas with up to 20,000 capacities. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050.”
The tour is now set to begin in Europe in February. However, due to scheduling conflicts, Future will not be able to join Nicki Minaj when she finally tours North America in May 2019.
“Refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, with new Nicki Minaj on-sale details announced soon,” the press release states.
Nicki Minaj also addressed the cancelled tour via Twitter, writing “I can’t wait for you to see what I have in store!” She assured her fans they still have a lot to look forward to.
