Nicki Minaj has had a very eventful week! Receiving the #2 album in America, blasting Travis Scott and his team for creating fraudulent sales that allowed him the number one spot, Queen Radio doing big things, and putting on a BOMB show at the 2018 VMAs! If you weren’t excited to see Nicki on tour before, that performance definitely had you checking for tickets in your city, but it seems that the Queen is putting a hold on her North American tour.
Nicki has decided to “reevaluate elements” of production for her Nicki Hendrixx Tour that was set to kick off in September in Baltimore. The tour will now be rescheduled to begin May 2019, but because of “scheduling conflicts” Future will no longer appear. Refunds for the tour will be available at point of purchase according to Live Nation.
“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,” the media release reads.
On top of that, it seems the ticket sales for the show haven’t been too good anyway. A Live Nation source told PageSix, “Nicki’s tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist. 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.”
