Nicki Minaj and Future scrap North American co-headlining tour

Nicki Minaj has scrapped the North American leg of her co-headlining tour with Future.

The Anaconda hitmaker and Future were due to kick off their NickiHndrxx tour on 21 September (18) in Baltimore before concluding in Las Vegas on 24 November.

However, representatives for tour promoter Live Nation announced late Tuesday night (21Aug18) that the 28-date trek had been postponed until May 2019 so the rapper could "reevaluate elements" of its production. As a result, Future has had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

Nicki subsequently took to Twitter to post a video explaining her decision.

"Future and I will now start the European leg of our tour first, so those dates will stay exactly the same and the U.S. leg of the tour will now start in May and so because of that, with Future's schedule, I may have to take another co-headliner or I may just do it like I did the Pinkprint tour... probably just three or four opening acts.

"This is all happening because I pushed my album back two months and I just finished writing and recording literally hours before the album came out so now I simply don't have the time to rehearse and be on the road in time to give you guys the level of a show I need to give."

The hip-hop star, who released new album Queen earlier this month, promised fans that she was "working tirelessly to give you the best show of my life" and concluded: "I really apologise but it will be worth it."

The co-headlining tour will now launch in February in Munich, Germany.

The news comes hours after New York Post's Page Six reported that the ticket sales had been underwhelming.

A Live Nation source told the publication: "Nicki's tour could be the most disappointing ticket sales of the year for any artist. These are big arenas with up to 20,000 capacities. Sales for opening night in Baltimore is 2,000 tickets. LA is 3,400, New Orleans 1,000, Denver 1,300, Chicago 3,900. Even her hometown Brooklyn is only 5,050."

Earlier this week, Nicki took aim at Travis Scott, his girlfriend Kylie Jenner and their baby daughter Stormi after Queen was beaten to the top spot in America by his album Astroworld.

"I put my blood sweat and tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi," she tweeted. "I'm actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries."
