Angry Nicki Minaj Fans Blast Rapper After Last Minute Tour Stop Cancellation 

Nicki Minaj fans were left devastated after the rapper postponed her Pink Friday 2 New Orleans tour stop at the last minute. 

Minaj was scheduled to perform at the Smoothie King Center on Monday night (March 18). However, hours before doors were set to open, the venue announced the unfortunate news that Minaj was unwell and would not be taking to the stage.  

Smoothie King Center posted a message from Minaj’s team on Instagram. 

“Due to doctor’s orders, Nicki Minaj must reschedule her NOLA show tonight,” the note began. “As Nicki is still sick, our team does not want to run the risk of getting others sick, and Nicki would not be able to give NOLA the show they deserve.” 

The venue informed fans, “We are working diligently to find a new date, so please hold onto your tickets.”

Another added, “nobody is mad bc she cancelled , it’s the fact they waited 4 hours before the event to tell us officially.” 

One fan shared a video after arriving at the venue only to learn Nicki Minaj would not be performing.  

“F### Nicki Minaj. We flew all the way here,” they stated. “We had to find out from the people at the concert that you were cancelling. You still haven’t tweeted about it. You haven’t said anything about it.”
