Nicki Minaj forced to cancel another European concert due to technical difficulties
Nicki says the venue didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate the show.
Nicki Minaj and Juice WRLD are having a rough time during the European leg of their Nicki Wrld Tour.
Just two weeks after being forced to postpone the Bratislava, Slovakia show because of technical difficulties, Minaj had to cancel another show at the Arkea Arena in Bordeaux, France on Saturday (Mar. 9) due to the same reasons.
“You guys, it’s not in my best interest not to perform, lose money and aggravate my fans,” she said in an Instagram video following the cancelation. The Arkea Arena issued a statement confirming the technical issues.
“I love performing for my fans, I’m more excited than you are before the show,” she continued in the video. “These two cities that had technical issues are cities that I’d never been to before and we tried to add them, but they just didn’t have the power in the building to facilitate my show, and they didn’t tell us until three hours before the show as opposed to once we did sound check they said it was fine.”
“Every artist — every artist — has technical difficulties and have to cancel shows,” she continued. “I wanna tell you guys that I love you dearly and I really hope to make it up very soon.”
The Bratislava, Slovakia show was canceled back in February because the venue was unable to support the “technical aspects” of the tour’s set design.
“We’ve been trying for hours to get the show to work, and the building says they don’t have the power in this building to make this show work,” she said onstage to the concert goers. “I feel horrible because you guys have been here for hours, and they’ve been trying everything they possibly can.”
After breaking the news to fans, Minaj had an impromptu meet & greet with Slovakian fans.
Minaj and Juice WRLD are expected to perform at London’s O2 Arena on March 11.
