Nicki Minaj and rapper Future are embarking on a joint tour across Europe, but have been forced to cancel the North American leg of the tour due to 'schedule conflicts' which arose when Nicki delayed her album release
Nicki Minaj took to social media to let fans know that she's going to have to cancel her joint tour with rapper Future in North America due to 'schedule conflicts' and need to find a new co-headliner, although the European leg of the tour with remain the same after her album delay 'Queen' pushed the whole thing back.
Thank you guys. I can’t wait for you to see what I have in store! Next level! I’m so proud of what we’re working on & cant wait to give you the show you deserve! It simply can’t be up & running in a month. I also have TV spots, videos shoots, + Made In America Festival coming up. https://t.co/LAYcUmHtgM— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 22, 2018
The 'Chun-Li' star admitted the level of tour she hopes to deliver to fans simply 'can't be up and running in a month' which means it has to be pushed back, meaning Future is no longer available to take part.
However, an unofficial source at ticket seller Live Nation has spoken out about the 'abysmal' ticket sales, telling an American tabloid: "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 [...] even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050".
Despite the disappointing news, Nicki's loyal fans have been expressing their support for the singer, and even helping her to come up with alternative headline ideas.
So, we guess it's a matter of waiting to see how packed out those arenas are when the tour finally kicks off, and in the mean time, check out Nicki's new savage attitude which has seen her calling Kylie Jenner who she 'loves' for helping boyfriend, Travis Scott, beat her to the number 1 spot by promising she and Stormi will be on tour with him.
