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.
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.”
