The “Chun Li” rapper on the 20TH of August announced through Live Nation that her North American tour with Future, the NickiHndrxx Tour, has been canceled and due to the scheduling conflicts, Future is leaving the tour.
“Following her unforgettable VMA performance, Nicki Minaj has decided to reevaluate elements of production on the NickiHndrxx Tour. The outing will now kick off in Europe this coming February as planned.”
“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 NickiHndrxx Tour had been scheduled to kick off Sept. 21 in Baltimore. Live Nation said refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates are available at point of purchase.
Early Wednesday morning, Minaj addressed her fans directly in a Twitter video.
“Hey, you guys. 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,” she said. “Because of that, with Future’s schedule, I may have to take another co-headliner, or I may just do it like I did with the Pinkprint Tour, and it wouldn’t be like a co-headliner; I probably would just have like three or four opening acts. I still am going to do Australia in January, and 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. So, now I just simply don’t have the time to rehearse and be on the road in time to give you guys the level of a show I need to give. Jamie King and I are working tirelessly to give you guys the best show of my life, and I really apologize, but it’ll be worth it.”
Nicki Minaj had also delayed the release of her fourth studio album Queen, moving it from June 15 to Aug. 10, so it would seem that timing is not one of her best qualities.
