It’s been an… interesting month for Nicki. The Queen of rap dropped a new album that officially debuted at No. 2 on the charts (though she’ll say otherwise) and went on a fiery rant aimed at haters, Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner (she called him the “ho n—a of the week).
Things take a turn for the worse.
More than two dozen Queen Tour dates have been rescheduled from this September to May 2019. When she kicks things off next spring, it will be sans Future.
“Future and I will now start the European leg of our tour first. So those dates will stay exactly the same. And the US leg of the tour will now start in May,” she said in a statement. “And so, 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 would just have like three or four opening acts.”
She added: “I just finished writing and recording literally hours before the album came out. So now I just simply don’t have the time to rehearse and be on the road in time to give you guys the level of a show I need to give.”
“Jaime 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.”
Live Nation claims they need to “reevaluate elements of production,” but we all know that’s code for low ticket sales.
A source tells Fox News Nicki only had 1,000 to 5,000 tickets sold in arenas that ahold 20,000. One person was cited as saying ticket sales were “in the toilet.”
Looking forward to Nicki’s next Queen Radio appearance! Dis gon’ be good.
