Nicki Minaj Cancels Third Show, Crowd Chants “Cardi B” Again
Nicki Minaj has been experiencing a few setbacks with her European tour with Juice Wrld. On Friday (March 15), the Queen Barbz had to cancel her concert in Dublin, Ireland due to circumstances beyond her control.
MCD Productions, Ireland’s biggest concert promoters, made the formal announcement on their social media accounts. In a message, they wrote, “Unfortunately, due to adverse weather conditions which have affected Irish Sea sailings over the last 24hrs resulting in some equipment trucks not arriving, Nicki Minaj has been forced to cancel her concert tonight (Friday 15 March 2019) at Dublin's 3Arena.”
Of course, this news didn’t sit well with Dublin fans, especially those who were waiting outside the venue early in the afternoon. Upon hearing that tonight’s show was canceled, the crowd repeatedly chanted, “Cardi B!”
This is the same reaction fans had in Bordeaux, France when the Queen artist shut down her concert minutes before it was supposed to begin. Apparently, the venue couldn't handle the elaborate set pieces onstage so the show had to be canceled. After fans were notified of the cancellation, many erupted in anger and chanted Cardi B, Nicki's rap rival. Some in the crowd even threw up their middle fingers.
As for fans in Dublin, those who have tickets for the March 15 show have been asked to hold on to their tickets as Nicki and the promoters are working out a reschedule date. MCD Productions says that fans will be able to get a full refund for their tickets and that, "Nicki Minaj apologizes for any inconvenience caused to fans due to these unforeseen circumstances."
XXL has reached out to Nicki's camp for additional comment.
