Nicki Minaj and her team were faced with another round of technical difficulties when the venue they were meant to perform in on Saturday, wasn’t able to accommodate the needs of their tour.
Minaj and American rapper, Juice WRLD, were already at the Arkea Arena in Bordeaux, France, prepping for soundcheck before the venue canceled the performance 3 hours before the show.
The “Queen” rapper who was as upset as her fans, took to twitter to address the cancelled show;
Why would an artist cancel a show & lose money? What for? When they’re already in the building, dressed, etc. The artist is just as mad as the fans when a show can’t go on. I love seeing my fans. Nothing can stop me. B4 the show, juice WRLD & I are just as excited as u guys are.

Minaj also posted a video apology via Instagram saying “You guys, it’s not in my best interest not to perform and lose money and aggravate my fans, I love performing for my fans. I’m more excited than you are before the show. These two cities that had technical issues are cities that I’ve never been to before, and we tried to add them.” She continued saying that the venue “just didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate my show”, Minaj also claimed that organisers didn’t report the issue soon enough “until three hours before the show, as opposed to when we did soundcheck and they said it was fine.”
Unfortunately for the rapper, fans were not satisfied with her second last-minute pull out from the concert, Minaj had also cancelled her previous show in Bratislava on Feb 22 for similar reasons- So unhappy, the fans even started chanting Cardi B’s name while forced to leave the concert. (Ooof!)
