Nicki Minaj and touring haven’t been getting along so well recently. She had her show in Bordeaux, France show at Arkea Arena. Nicki Minaj and Juice WRLD are currently on tour for their Nicki WRLD tour in Europe.
This is Nicki Minaj’s second time canceling her show due to technical issues. Nicki Minaj had to cancel another show in Bratislava, Slovakia show at Ondrej Nepela Arena on February 22. Both times due to the venues not being equipped with enough electricity to handle her stage equipment!
When the first show was cancelled Nick Minaj came on stage, and made the announcement. She also stayed at the venue for 4 hours talking to all the fans with an impromptu meet and greet for her Barbs. This time she took to instagram to address the outrage of her Bordeaux fans. The Chung Lee rapper must have heard about them chanting “Cardi B ” , and booing her in response to the show being cancelled!
Nicki Minaj said that the venue failed to inform her in sufficient time, and she even did a sound check where they still said nothing. She must have been ready to perform because her Queen back drop was front and center. All of these cities Nicki has never been according to her.
We are just wondering why she couldn’t just perform with her DJ, mics, and speakers that they have at the venue?!? I mean if it was possible I’m sure she could’ve just dumbed down the show, and still performed her hits. Some people are perfectionist, and refuse to put on a half a$$ed show, but come on!
Nick said this on Instagram to her fans:
“You guys, it’s not in my best interest not to perform and lose money and aggravate my fans. I love performing for my fans,” she explained following the announcement.
“I’m more excited than you are before the show. These two cities that had technical issues were cities I’d never been to before. We tried to add them, but they just didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate my show and they didn’t tell us that until three hours before the show as opposed to once we did sound check, they said that it was fine,” she continued. “But anyway. Every artist, every artist, has technical difficulties and has to cancel shows. I want to tell you guys that I love you dearly and I really hope to make it up very soon.”
She ran into issues with her touring schedule already. She had set to tour with rapper Future in the US early this Fall/late summer , but cancelled due to rumored low ticket sales. She later replaced Future with Juice WRLD, and booked only European cities.
Do you think Nicki Minaj needs to hang this tour up, so she doesn’t run into anymore technical issues risking the integrity of her show quality and work ethic?
