Nicki Minaj’s European tour is starting to feel like somewhat of a misadventure. That’s not to slight the legendary rapper, who has forged her way through an impressive and record-breaking career. Yet the cruel sisters of Fate appear to be stacked against her, as unforeseen problems have led to yet another concert cancellation. While the first two, in Bratislava, Slovakia and Bordeaux, France respectively, had to be canceled due to electrical issues, her scheduled show in Dublin, Ireland was called off due to weather issues.
Promoters broke the news on Twitter, laying the blame at the feet of the elements: “Due to adverse weather conditions which have affected Irish Sea saiings over the last 24hrs resulting in some equipment trucks not arriving, Nicki Minaj has been forced to cancel her concert tonight.”
Unfortunately for Nicki, those who had already lined up for the concert were not entirely forgiving. Despite having lined up to see Nicki Minaj, a small contingent took to chanting Cardi B in retaliation. Though given the fact that they spent money to catch Nicki live, the spontaneous change of alliance might be worthy of a full-bellied Khaled-ism: “congratulations, you played yourself.”
The statement reads: “The adverse weather conditions which affected Irish Sea sailings over the last 24hrs resulted in only half the trucks carrying their equipment arriving ahead of the concert.
“Nicki Minaj apologises for any inconvenience caused to fans due to these unforeseen circumstances.”
A new revised statement this evening stated that the gig will go ahead at all.
It read: “Unfortunately the artist, venue and promoters have been unable to reschedule the concert despite great efforts by all parties.
