Nicki Minaj may be riding high after making Billboard history, but she still hasn't been able to sell out a single UK tour date.
The UK leg of Minaj’s NickiHndrxx Tour with Future is struggling and her performance during Sunday’s MTV European Music Awards at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre in Barakaldo, Spain could have been to help boost her European tour sales. And it's not just the UK dates that are struggling, the 22-date tour, which kicks off in off in Munich, has so far failed to sell out a single show.
"Nicki is a big name in the industry but she is becoming known more for the drama around what she says and does rather than her music," a music insider told The Sun. "Her feud with Cardi B has turned a lot of people off her and even getting Future involved in the tour hasn’t shifted tickets."
Nicki had pushed back her North American dates, stating that she wouldn't have time to rehearse and after her album's release way after it was originally scheduled.
"Thousands and thousands of tickets for her show remain unsold and it’s just not good at all, especially as she already had to postpone her US dates earlier this year because her album wasn’t ready," the insider added.
Oh dear. If a Nicki/Future show can't sell out, does this mean the beginning of the end for both of their careers? Most people are over Nicki's feud with Cardi, with Remy Ma calling them both "corny."
Why aren't the Barbz showing up for their Queen?
