Nicki Minaj Cancels North American Tour Amid Reports of Low Ticket Sales

Tour opener 6ix9ine is not mentioned in the press release, so he will likely be unaffected by the changes.

Nicki Minaj's latest album Queen, which dropped on August 10, recently debuted as the number two album in the country, behind Travis Scott's Astroworld. A statement from Live Nation notes that Minaj "has chose to reevaluate elements of production on the "NickiHndrxx Tour" following her surprise performance Monday at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

Nicki Minaj has pulled the plug on her upcoming North American tour with Future just a month before it was set to kick off, citing her need to "reevaluate elements of production", per a statement from Live Nation. The outing will now kick off in Europe this coming February as planned. The news comes alongside unsubstantiated reports of low ticket sales. And because of what Live Nation calls "scheduling conflicts", Future won't be on the American leg of Nicki's tour.

Trump complains about interest rate rises
US stocks dipped after Trump's comments to Reuters and the dollar edged down against a basket of currencies. President Donald Trump leaves the Rose Garden with Jerome Powell, his nominee to become chairman of the U.S.

The 35-year-old artist took to Twitter on Tuesday to detail the new schedule to her fans, explaining that Future will still perform with her during the European leg of the tour, but she "may have to take another co-headliner", or she may decide to just have "three or four opening acts". LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. At the time of that report, those same sources said the tour was in danger of being cancelled, and now that's happened. "Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050", said a source who spoke to the outlet.

Minaj went on to write about Scott's high sales, suggesting they come from the fact he's selling album bundles online, which include merchandise and tour "season passes" that give fans priority venue entry and discounts. "Jamie King and I are working tirelessly to give you guys the best show of my life, and I really apologize, but it'll be worth it".
