Just a day after the Nicki WRLD Tour kicked off, the Queen rapper was reportedly forced to cancel her Bratislava, Slovakia show because of electrical issues. According to TMZ, the concert venue experienced several outages Friday night and could not support the "technical aspects of" the tour's set design. Nicki eventually stepped onto the stage to personally break the news to concertgoers.
"First of all, I f**kin' love you," she told the crowd, "[...] 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."
Nicki thanked her fans for showing up and promised she would return.
TMZ reports Nicki spent hours walking around the venue saying hello to attendees.
The Nicki WRLD Tour—co-headlined by Juice WRLD—launched Thursday night in Munich. The rappers are expected to make stops in Berlin, Oslo, Paris, and London, before wrapping up the European leg March 28 in Geneva.
During an episode of Queen Radio this month, Nicki told listeners Soulja Boy would join the U.S. leg of the tour. The rapper had planned to kick off the North American trek with Future this past September. Those dates were ultimately scrapped after The Wzrd artist backed out due to "scheduling conflicts"
"Nicki Minaj will be announcing new North American dates to kick off in May 2019," a press release read. "Refunds for the previously scheduled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, with new Nicki Minaj on-sale details announced soon."
