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.”
As of now, Nicki Minaj has yet to comment on the cancellation.
