Nicki Minaj Apologizes For Postponing Tour Stop Just A Day After ‘Nicki WRLD’ Kick Off

Published: Saturday 23rd Feb 2019 by Rashad

Despite a flawless kick off to her European ‘Nicki WRLD’ tour in Munich, Germany on Thursday (February 21) as we reported here, rap queen Nicki Minaj was royally derailed by a series of technical difficulties ahead of the trek’s second showing set to take place in Bratislava, Slovakia (February 22).

Pointing to the electrical issues at the venue, Minaj reported the site could not support many of the visual elements incorporated into her show and, as a result, would have to postpone it.  Taking to Instagram to issue a heartfelt apology, read her lengthy statement inside:

“First of all, I f**kin’ love you,” she told the crowd, “[…] We’ve been trying for hours to get the show to work, and the building says they don’t have the power in this building to make this show work. I feel horrible because you guys have been here for hours, and they’ve been trying everything they possibly can.”

Reportedly spending hours after the announcement above making it up to the attendees by meeting several of them one-on-one, the rapstress later took to Instagram (in a now deleted post) to offer a lengthy apology:

“Gutted. Heart broken,” she wrote. “I can’t believe my fans sometimes. After waiting for hours & hours, they still tried to be understanding. Production was told the building does not have the power to facilitate my lifts (which don’t only move me below & very VERY high above the stage, but also move all our props, furniture, dancers, band, etc.), our lighting rig, fog, cryo, confetti, movies/visuals. They’d get the show powered up then the breaker would basically trip after a few mins. Juice WRLD & I waited while they did this over & over for 3 hours.”

She continued, stating:

“Some of my fans came from Austria, Nigeria, etc. I met w/a lot of them & they had the best, sweetest energy,” she added. “I’m so disappointed. Slovakia, I love you so much & I’ll do everything in my power to get back to you as soon as I can. I think the venue/promo team probably didn’t expect a rap show to have such over the top production. We run the risk of someone getting hurt if we start the show & smthng malfunctions mid-show. Sorry we couldn’t have a great night together. We’ll be in Poland on Sunday @ a building that can facilitate our show. ♥️??.”


There are 20 dates left to complete in the European leg of the tour before she returns Stateside for the North American portion.

      When you don’t have an argument … You talk about irrelevancy.

      When has Mariah EVER had to cancel her HUNDREDS of show in these same countries and at these same venues … I’LL WAIT.

  4. Clarkson February 23, 2019

    She needs to refresh herself.
    Her style is old
    The way she raps is old
    The way she dresses is old
    Her flows are old
    Her Barbie persona is old
    Her sound is old
    Her body is old. Nobody walks around with a huge fake bum anymore. This is 2019 not 2015 when big fake butts were in vogue.

    Cardi about to have another number 1 with thotiana remix
    Please me is definitely going to reach the top 5 also

    • King of Kingz February 23, 2019

      Babe the only thing that’s old is Retardi’s same tired ass flow on every damn song. The thotiana wack-mix would have to out sell/stream the original in order for her to receive credit for its success, which it isn’t. She used cultural vulture Bruno Mars for that song that samples R. Kelly’s S** Me, cuz without him trust & believe it wouldn’t go nowhere cuz her rap on there is wack & basic af. U dumb as if u think Retardi’s ass is authentic & Nicki’s Barbie Persona is her signature the same way Ariana’s Ponytail is hers.

      • Megan February 23, 2019

        Yet her first official single with no feature went straight to #1. Gtfohwtbs!!! After 100000009999999990000 tries as a solo, feature and lead with a feature, the old hag you Stan for still couldn’t do what Cardi has done…3 Times thus far. Sit your miserable @$$ in the corner somewhere and go stream Quack, I mean Queen! ?

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ February 23, 2019

        @KingPfQueens girl Ariana’s tired ponytail is a ponytail many women wear, have worn and will continue to wear way after Ariana. Women of all ages from kids to old…. ain’t no woman out here calling herself no damn Barbie. That’s a terrible example.. she just needs to reinvent herself. She’s old now

      • Beam Me Up Scotty February 24, 2019

        Jazzy you’re dense if you can’t see the similarities. There is nothing original about Cardi B.

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ February 24, 2019

        @beam and there is literally NOTHING original about Nicki Minaj. Literally. NOTHING. They are all walking around in 2000 lil Kim costumes.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty February 23, 2019

      Just keep talking out of your a s s e s Megan and Clarkson. The illiterate stripper-h** persona Cardi B has won’t last long. Cardi B is nothing but a carbon copy of Nicki Minaj, except she lacks the talent to go beyond a pole. Thotiana remix is trash and is going nowhere but the trash.

      • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ February 23, 2019

        Carbon copy of nicki? Lmfao ohhhhh the irony. Ain’t nobody copying Nicki, as nicki is a carbon copy herself. Imagine pointing to your fav and saying people are copying her and those same people point to the person ur fav is copying to correct you.

  5. Caleb February 23, 2019

    Well at least she was sincere and came out to explain what happened to her fans. There have been times when the artist doesn’t even bother to address their fans and just cancels or postpones without coming to tell them why.

  6. Bam Bam February 23, 2019

    Good for her because when Drake cancelled on us in Miami he ain’t say nothin…

  7. KingMark111 February 23, 2019

    Nothing good will come her way. 2019 is the year of Karma, Nicki, Wendy, The Kardashians, RKelly and so on.

  8. AnonymousTruth February 24, 2019

    Some of ya’ll in here are soooooooooooooo presses by Nicki it’s insane.
    Kim might have been the first female rapper to wear colourful wigs . But if she didn’t , it would have been done by somebody else . Colorful wigs was not something invented by Lil Kim . Clowns been done that ! .
    Other than wigs , Nicki is nothing like lil Kim , her flow , talent and approach to music is completely different . Lil Kim can’t even release a decent single these days . Since all her ghostwriters have died. Cardi B is only successful because people have invested $$$ in her with ghost writers & Nicki style branding . Until somebody wrote Bodak Yellow for her , she was not it . Her 10,000 YouTube mixtape videos weren’t doing it for nobody . She had a lot of help and is basically a rap puppet . B**** can’t even spell … let alone write a decent rap & ya’ll really tryna push her as rap royalty . FOH …

  9. Gee February 24, 2019

    This Nicki vs Cardi crap is old now, to be honest Nicki and fans need to stop with Cardi is copying Nicki when Nicki copied everything Lil Kim even down to her iconic hardcore poster pose at one point. You can not throw stones when you are sitting in a glasshouse. Again all these females rappers need to pay respect to Lil Kim because she is and has been their blueprint.

    • February 24, 2019

      Nicki copied everything you say, sigh please shut up.

  10. February 24, 2019

    nuff respect Queen Nicki.

  11. XYZ February 24, 2019

    I think it’s funny that Thatgrapejuice always says that her munich concert has been sold out – or that even her fans are saying that. Because right now I just took a look at to see whether I could still buy tickets for her other concerts in Germany. And yes, for Berlin for example, around a third of the whole arena is still available. And the concert is in 4 days.

    • ZOMG February 24, 2019

      I’m guessing you wanted a medal for having the spare time in your life to research all that #DoingTheMostest #WhereYourLifeAt

      • XYZ February 24, 2019

        Nope, I actually was interested, cause I am not a fan of her as a character, but I like some of her music. And the videos of her show were quite good, so I thought about going to the tour. Seeing this just made it very obvious to me how biased tgj is and how they are promoting her by publishing fake news.

  12. Adele February 24, 2019

    Phew chile THE GHETTO! An artist of her calibur should not be having issues like this.
