Nicki Minaj Explains Postponement Of US Tour [Video]

Published: Wednesday 22nd Aug 2018 by Sam

After much speculation, Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she is indeed delaying the Stateside leg of her ‘NICKIHNDRXX’ TOUR.

Together with an official statement issued by the promoter, the rapper took to social media to offer more personal insight into what the reason for the postponement is.

Full story below…

A statement received by That Grape Juice read:

“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.” 

It was also confirmed that Future will now NOT be on the US leg of the trek:

Due to scheduling conflicts Future will not be on the North American run.  Nicki Minaj will be announcing new North American dates to kick off in May 2019. Refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, with new Nicki Minaj on-sale details announced soon.

What that means for the title of the US trek remains to be seen (HNDRXX is his alias). But, Onika took to social media to provide additional context:

The news comes after the release of her fourth album ‘Queen’ and the various headlines attached to that.

    Girl just stop embarrassing yourself. We all can go to Ticketmaster and see the show was not selling at all.
    You have been receiving so many L’s This year. Once you humble yourself, people will become interested again. Until then, continue with your shenanigans and continue to flop! #karma

  2. Jeans August 22, 2018

    Nicki is desperately trying to save face! Please. Those tickets just wasn’t the bizness. Try again Nicki. You are becoming a laughing stock at this point,

  3. Barb-wire August 22, 2018

    We understand baby girl. Take whatever time you need. The Barbz and your haters will still be here waiting for you. The album is literally the best to come out this year, you have nothing to prove.

    • I said what I said August 22, 2018

      Girl you don’t even believe that! ????

    • xyz August 22, 2018

      Nah, it‘s not. It’s ok, a decent album with good songs and some that weren’t that good. And the tour, she just needs time to sell those tickets cause we all can see that it did not sell. It’s online. On ticketmaster. People just did not care to see her live. I wouldn’t either, I listen to some of her music but I would never go and pay to see her big ass and weird facial impressions live.

  4. SNF August 22, 2018

    Im starting to feel bad for Nicki… She needs guidance in certain areas. The album is dope but ppl arent even listening to it bc of all this mess happening… Its gonna take a alot for her to bounce back. She seems really lost and unhappy… Beefing with everyone is why shes at this point. Nicki is so bothered and im sorry but the Barbz are a delusional group of folk…

  5. Caleb August 22, 2018

    So what about the tour bundles? Are they going to be part of the refund and will they be redacted from chart numbers? Lol

    • I said what I said August 22, 2018

      The funny thing is, Nicki makes so much of Cardi being an ex-stripper. But in the meantime, and the VMAs proved that, Cardi has evolved and showed some class while Nicki ran around naked showing everyone her tremendous ass that looks like it is going to explode anytime soon.

      • SMH August 22, 2018

        You call what Cardi did at the VMAs class? Lol your poor clueless generation hasn’t got a clue lol ?.

  7. Lol August 22, 2018

    She must really think we’re stupid lol

    This is From Page Six:

    A Live Nation source told us, “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. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050.”

    An industry insider said, “Nicki has gone off the rails. She can’t take it that she sold less records than Cardi B (who’s stealing her thunder big time) in her first week; she can’t take it that Travis beat her to No. 1. Her ticket sales for her tour are in the toilet, and it’s making her even more crazy.”

    • I said what I said August 22, 2018

      Chile…. ????

    • SMH August 22, 2018

      Yeah, because page six is always accurate and truthful in their journalistic reporting. ?

      • erica August 23, 2018

        girl it’s truth they’re a reliable source been here for years with accurate information

  9. Sza August 22, 2018

    This whole era is a flip flop ? Nicki sir somewhere nobody checking for you, it’s Cardi’s time.

    • Sza August 22, 2018


      • Sza August 22, 2018

        And nicki you too old to be dressing and acting the you been acting

  10. ~The Arcade~ August 22, 2018

    Wow she really has the most loyal fans (Sarcasm)

  11. Selah August 22, 2018

    How do you announce a tour months in advance, and not have production and rehearsals at least lined up? She is trying to save face. You can easily go on Ticketmasters website and see why the tour was actually “postponed”. It wasn’t selling!

  12. NMFAN2018 August 22, 2018

    I’m a Nicki fan but I’m pissed I’m so tired of these artist canceling and postponing shows it has happened to me every single time I order concert tickets artists should be prepared before they sell tickets to a show now the fans have to deal with flights travel and hotels booked because you didn’t meet the deadline smh it’s very unprofessional

    • erica August 22, 2018

      she should have pick a smaller venue maybe the house of blues or something I’m being honest

      • Caleb August 22, 2018


    • Selah August 22, 2018

      She should have done amphitheaters and festivals. Like I said yesterday, who is advising her? Nicki makes some of the dumbest business decisions ever.

  13. August 22, 2018

    Nicki none of your fans wanted to see fcking future, they wanted to see you alone and special guess, not no doubleheader with fcking future. this is all her fault such a mess of a rollout, love her she will get it together.

    • I said what I said August 22, 2018

      Chile don’t blame it on Future for low ticket sales. When Drake and Future did a coheadlining tour together a couple years ago, they had no problem selling tickets. Nice try though. Go stream and or buy Queen! ????

      • SMH August 22, 2018

        Well then why couldn’t Future sell tickets for this tour?

  14. DIABETES UNBOTHERED ? August 22, 2018

    Nicki Minaj (YMCMB/Republic) 82-87k, 15-17k

        As of July 6, 2018, Invasion of Privacy is the best-performing female album of 2018 and the third overall in the United States.[83]

  15. Love is Love August 23, 2018

    Nicki is QUEEN! She’s 4 albums in DEEP and still delivering great music! SO happy for her!

  16. DanYiel Iman August 23, 2018
