Nicki Minaj and Future Reschedule North American Leg of NickiHndrxx Tour
The North American leg of Nicki Minaj and Future's NickiHndrxx Tour was supposed to kick off on Sept. 21 in Baltimore but the dates are now no longer happening. Nicki and Future will continue with the European leg of the tour as normal, while dates for the North American leg will be rescheduled and take place without Future.
According to a statement from Live Nation, the Queen rapper has "decided to reevaluate elements of production on the NickiHndrxx Tour" following her performance at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. "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 reads.
Nicki's North American tour is now expected to begin in May 2019, although Future won't be able to join the "Ganja Burn" artist due to scheduling conflicts. Refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates will be available at point of purchase.
Nicki addressed the tour delay in a video posted to her Twitter account early this morning (Aug. 22).
"Future and I will now start the European leg of our tour first, so those dates will stay exactly the same and the U.S. leg of the tour will now start in May," she said. "Because of that, with Future's schedule, I may have to take another co-headliner or I may just do it like I did the Pinkprint tour and it wouldn't be, like, a co-headline. I probably will just have three or four opening acts. I still am going to do Australia in January."
It's uncertain if 6ix9ine will still be joining the artists on the European leg of the trek, after Minaj previously announced the "Fefe" rapper as one of the opening guest for the tour. Nicki also teased that two more artists would be announced for the trek.
