Nicki Minaj has just “pushed back” the North American leg of her upcoming tour with Future. Live Nation released a statement saying they “decided to re-evaluate elements of production on the ‘NickiHndrxx Tour’” following her surprise performance Monday at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.
Nicki took to her social media to say the European leg would continue as planned, but she’ll have to find another co-headliner since Future is suddenly unavailable. She also didn’t know when the North American dates would be rescheduled.
News of the cancelation follows reports of low ticket sales, with a Live Nation source telling Page Six:
“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.”
