Nicki Minaj has canceled her “NickiHndrxx” tour of North America with Future, according to an announcement from Live Nation. The tour will now kick off with its already-announced European dates starting Munich, Germany on February 21 and Minaj will announce her own 2019 tour that is slated to begin in May of next year.
In its statement, Live Nation says, “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.”
The statement continues, “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.”
The NickiHndrxx tour will cross Europe and the UK for five weeks in February and March of 2019, ending in Geneva, Switzerland on March 28.
Minaj’s new album Queen was released earlier this month and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, which the rapper has been tweeting about after losing out on a #1 debut thanks to Travis Scott‘s Astroworld.
