Nicki Minaj's European tour has kicked off, but over the weekend, the rapper was forced to bow out of a show in Bratislava, Slovakia due to technical difficulties.

But Nicki let her fans know how much she appreciated their support and their patience:

"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. I feel horrible because you guys have been here for hours, and they've been trying everything they possibly can," she wrote on Instagram.

"Gutted. Heart broken. I can’t believe my fans sometimes. After waiting for hours & hours, they still tried to be understanding. Production was told the building does not have the power to facilitate my lifts (which don’t only move me below & very VERY high above the stage, but also move all our props, furniture, dancers, band, etc.), our lighting rig, fog, cryo, confetti, movies/visuals. They’d get the show powered up then the breaker would basically trip after a few mins. Juice WRLD & I waited while they did this over & over for 3 hours."

But the promotion company, XL Promotion, took to Instagram to dispute Nicki Minaj's claims:

“The Winter Stadium of Andrew Nepelu meets all the technical standards and the agency XL Promotion respected all the conditions sent by the production of Nicki Minaj,” they wrote on their Facebook page.

Nicki has since deleted her post.
