Report: Nicki Minaj & Future Cancel North American Leg of Their Joint Tour

Published: Tuesday 21st Aug 2018 by Rashad

Well that was fast!

Just a day after informing fans she was considering pushing the U.S. leg of her forthcoming ‘NICKIHNDRXX Tour’ back (set to kick off just a month from today in Baltimore), reports are flooding the net Nicki Minaj and Future have opted to cancel the North American leg of the trek all together.

Worrying details inside:

As of tonight, the 28-date North American leg of the tour has been scrapped entirely. The duo is still set to tour Europe and the UK as scheduled, and Nicki Minaj will announce new solo tour dates for 2019.

A press release states that Nicki has “has decided to reevaluate elements of production on the NickiHndrxx Tour…and 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.” [source]


The same press release reportedly cites Future’s schedule as the cause of conflict with certain dates, prompting Minaj to announce solo dates in the near future for launch at the top of next year.  European fans needn’t frets for, as of time reported, those original dates on the tour are intact.

    Flop. Ain’t nobody in the us gonna pay to see these two egomaniacs walk around on stage and lip synch to their songs. They ain’t Britney Spears so they can’t get away with that ish in cynical usa. Resputia would much rather ser Fantasia, Ginuwine, and Tank sing her the songs she likes while she sips on her wine coolers. Bye Felicia…ie….I mean Auntie Nicki LOL and Bye Ms. Wilburn…lol I mean Future…lol

    It seems like audits are always struggling around the fourth album or really Showing off their artist development. Looking back these albums are A necessary in there Catalog of hits

    Lady Gaga – Joanne.
    Rihanna – rated R
    Beyonce- 4
    Britney – in the zone

      Good and interesting observation

    • Carlitos August 21, 2018

      As much as I love Katy’s album Witness, she also falls into this category…

        That PR statement is total bull s h I t.

        The ticket sales for her arena based US tour are in the toilet. Even Lady Gaga at a diminished point in her career (Joanne) on her fourth album managed to debut at No.1 with higher pure sales even without the aid of a Chun Li or FEFE sized hit. The Joanne World tour even managed to sell out most of its arena dates.

        Her career is officially over. I guess that is what happens when ppl find out you bailed out your p******** brother who is accused of molesting a 12 year old (utterly disgusting), another female MC releases one of the all time great diss records calling you out on your BS, a younger fresher, and more relatable female MC makes history with not one but TWO Billboard Hot 100 No.1 singles in less than a year, and finally, collaborating on a song with a man who PLEAD GUILTY to distributing child p o r n. Not to mention being a horriblly entitled, arrogant second rate Lil Kim impersonator.

        Stick a fork in her, she’s done.

      Rated R is one of Rihanna’s best album. That album had to be made after the Chris Brown issue.

    • Ropeburn August 22, 2018

      Lady Gags been struggling since Born This Way. Applause was a wack attempt to get back the fans who loved The Fame. JoAnne, with its lukewarm adult contemporary easy listening songs merely sealed her fate.

    Somebody check on Nick… She can pretend she’s joking with all her public rants recently, but it’s clear this woman is unhappy and and breaking down. It’s so transparent no matter how you dress it up. Especially with this news on top of all the other L’s. Hope she’s okay.

  4. Justme August 21, 2018

    Good.. I didn’t wanna see future.. she definitely getting my coin if she come back solo

    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish August 22, 2018

      Future is not a live performer

      • Truth Dot Com August 22, 2018

        I completely agree!!!!
        I saw him and Drake on tour and almost just wanted Drake to perform the whole time because Drake is better at performing.
        I’m not the biggest fan of Rap but I know a performer when I see one.
        Another good performer is Common. High Energy
        Malibu……Future’s tracks should just play with dancers on stage. He don’t need to be there.

  5. Aretha Franklin August 21, 2018

    It was a catastrophe from the start chile. Ticket sales were virtually nonexistent. Neither of those losers can sell an arena in 2018. Nicki, you’re done doll. Go revaluate your career honey. FLOP…….

  6. #TeamTinashe Stan August 21, 2018

    Self proclaimed “Queen” is now CRUMBLING!
    I feel bad I just wish she uplifted her fellow female rap colleagues and worked with them and did a “Ladies Night Pt. 2” but she wanted to be seen as the ONLY female rapper.

    • Ricko August 21, 2018

      Omg I just said this. Instead she called the only girl in the industry no one mess with. fox ?… If she really wanted historical numbers she would have done a track with Kim. She could have also kept fox on the coco song. But a song with Kim would have went number one. Everyone in the world would have at least clicked on the song to see what it sound like. Who out rapped who. Who had better delivery etc that would have made hip hop
      So fun. If nas and Jay-Z did it for business why no one told nicki this was her chess move to win the game?

  7. Ricko August 21, 2018

    At this point the only thing and I mean the only thing that can revive Minaj career right now is to team up with missy and Kim. It’s still fixable with Cardi, Cardi just let her no it’s no miles situation over here. Nicki needs to go ghost. Behind scenes work with these ladies. Come back and re release the queen with bonus track featuring the Queens of hip hop. Have a ladies night tour with Kim and I guarantee you she will do better numbers. Even if she fakes it, she needs to do this one for the hip hop community. Have Kash doll and Asian be the opening acts and different female in every city they go in…..

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. August 22, 2018

      @Ricko – No. (To ALL that.)

      • SMH August 22, 2018

        Exactly, none of that is a good idea. At all.

  8. KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) August 21, 2018

    I’m just waiting for a Cardi B & Travis Scott to drop a track ?called “Always Number 2”. !! Nicki looks like she’s paying fans to cheer at her performances now!! ??‍♂️

  9. Theman August 21, 2018

    Nicki’s tour will be fine. She’s just restructuring things. More singles/videos will be released & her album sales were actually quite good. She was just one position away from the top spot. Y’all want her to flop badly. But she really isn’t in a general sense. Her sales are higher than some other high profile artists. It’s her arrogance/attitude that’s throwing things off. There will still be a tour. Her team is just trying to sort out the rollout.

    • DanYiel Iman August 22, 2018

      Oh please her fans will cry with her while she FAILS!!?”Bzzz”?

    • Detruth August 22, 2018

      I don’t think ppl would go in on her so much if she didn’t make this such a big deal. Number 2 isn’t a flop but she’s calling ppl out and complaining acting a fool like it is. She’s too old for this and she is even turning some of her fans off. The attitude can possibly make the long term numbers for this album even worse.

    • I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish August 22, 2018

      Nicki Minaj will be going on tour for all you haters stalkers obsessors…. now for her fans yes Nicki will be going on tour soon

    Nicki Minaj is “spiraling out of control,” say top music-industry insiders, amid disastrous tour ticket sales — and she’s lashing out at Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner, accusing them of using their baby to boost his album sales.

    We’re told stubs for her upcoming tour — to begin next month — aren’t flying off the shelves

    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.”

    Sources even said the tour is in danger of being canceled.

  11. JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 22, 2018

    Look like b****** still sucking Nicki dock because these mf mouth full of c** leaking Nicki name in every post Your hating ass b****** need to learn to swallow and keep the pickle suckers close because while Nicki networth 75 million y’all h*** broke as f*** biggest flop sitting at home no left post on every Nicki post you troll ass roaches!!

    • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 22, 2018


  12. Mandy August 22, 2018

    Tickets weren’t selling if you won’t on ticketmaster you’d see so many dark blue sections around the arenas. And that even shows in her album sales because it’s clear that less people bought tickets hence no actual tour bundles boost

    • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 22, 2018

      Go sit down Man-DY and nobody ask you s*** hating ass h**

      • Mandy August 22, 2018

        Seethe!!!! Jaquisha??????????

  13. MessyBoots August 22, 2018

    She had no other option but to cancel.

    The arrogance of her and her team to believe Nicki could come off a 4 year hiatus between albums and fill ARENAS without a preceding hit album in 2018? Alongside Future? ???

    I’d laugh even harder if it wasn’t already sad enough. #TheDelusion

  14. DanYiel Iman August 22, 2018

    IT seems her fans can’t afford albums or her tours tickets!! ✌?? Big Booty Fraud Minaj!!

  15. Beam Me Up Scotty August 22, 2018

    It’s disgusting how I can’t click on an article about Nicki Minaj without 90% of the comments on this website being hate comments. It’s like this community of people consists of nothing but Lil’ Kim, Remy Ma, and Cardi B supporters. I’m over it.

    Nicki Minaj has made some mistakes, but some of your comments are on a whole other level of hate. She currently has the #2 album in the United States after 4 years, 10 years into her career, without a hit single, and selling almost 200k. No other female rapper in history has 2 #2 albums and 2 #1 albums. That is far from being a flop.

    • jan August 22, 2018

      Cardi is about to

    • Rosy August 22, 2018

      The reason she gets so much hate and karma is because she plays dirty she wanted cardi to fail she is cocky and evil remy put it out there that she fights against other female rappers nicki did this to herself instead of embracing other females she hate on them the public can see through you how genuine a person is versus evil and nicki is pure evil I see my daughter likes nicki and ask me why she hates on other women cardi appeal to little girls because she has a funny personality like rih rih people like real ness not stuck up

  16. Haterz Gon’ Hate August 22, 2018

    How are you “re-evaluating elements of the production“ yet the tour is still okay to proceed in Europe?? The press release is utter BS and there is trouble in paradise chile.

  17. CX August 22, 2018

    Something about our female idols and that fourth LP. Either sink or swim, professionally and personally….!!!
