Soon after Live Nation announced the cancellation of North America’s NICKIHNDRXX Tour, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to publicly explain why her co-headlining trek was being delayed to May of 2019. While the European and Australian dates will remain the same, she isn’t sure Future will be able to join her due to scheduling conflicts stateside next year.

“Future and I will now start the European leg of our tour first, so those dates will stay exactly the same and the U.S. leg of the tour will now start in May,” the Queens native said. “With Future’s schedule, I may have to take another co-headliner or I may just do it like I did The Pinkprint Tour and it wouldn’t be a co-headline. I probably will just have three or four opening acts.”

While some publications have cited poor ticket sales as the reason for the postponement, Nicki noted that she does not have sufficient time to rehearse and give her fans the performance they expect and deserve. “This is all happening because I pushed my album back two months and I just finished writing and recording literally hours before the album came out,” she said. “Now, I simply don’t have the time to rehearse and be on the road and give you guys the level of a show I need to give. I really apologize but it will be worth it.”

The 35-year-old rapper, who just released Queen via Young Money/Cash Money Records, explained the situation via Twitter.
