Nicki Minaj has been in the spotlight like no other of late following the “unique” roll-out and promotion of new album ‘Queen.’
Social media has been quite the tool for the talented rapper, who hasn’t shied away from sharing her thoughts on the project’s greatness and its alleged unfair treatment at the hands of the powers that be.
Now, Onika may be on the cusp of upsetting a large portion of her Stateside base. Because, she has revealed that she’s presently mulling delaying the start of the US leg her and Future‘s ‘NICKIHNDRXX TOUR’ until 2019. This despite the trek being set to kick off next month…
Full story below…
Speaking to fans on a live Instagram, Minaj said the following:
“I’m really looking forward to this tour.
[But] I am thinking about possibly starting the tour with the European run because there’s so many dope things Jamie and I have planned out to do. And, just like with the album – when I was pushing the album back – you guys didn’t understand why. And then when you got the album it was like “oh, I see that it’s perfection.”
With the tour, it’s the same thing. Like I want to make sure that I’m giving you guys the best possible tour. So I’m still thinking about it. And if I do (postpone), it’ll still be in indoor arenas. I think it’ll be dope because you guys will have more videos at that time and we would have had more time to live with the album. So, nothing will change with the European dates and I’ll do an Australian run in January.”
The European run Minaj mentions kicks off at the end of February and and climaxes at the end of March. So, “if” the US shows are pushed indeed back, it’d theoretically mean that Stateside arenas wouldn’t be seeing her until at least April 2019. At the earliest.
