Nicki Minaj and Future have canceled the entire North American leg of their upcoming NickiHndrxx Tour. Nicki’s ‘reevaluating elements of production’ and Future won’t be able to attend the new dates due to scheduling conflicts. A Live Nation source told Page Six, “Nicki’s tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist. These are big arenas with up to 20,000 capacities. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050.”The tour will now launch in February with a previously announced European run. An industry insider said, “Nicki has gone off the rails. She can’t take it that she sold less records than Cardi B (who’s stealing her thunder big time) in her first week; she can’t take it that Travis beat her to No. 1. Her ticket sales for her tour are in the toilet, and it’s making her even more crazy.” Refunds for the canceled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, and Minaj will announce new on-sale dates soon. Minaj took to Twitter to address the reason for her tour cancellation.
