Nicki Minaj is struggling to sell tickets for her European tour, despite electric EMA performance
Not a single date in the 22-day tour, which kicks off in three months time in Munich, has been sold out
Nicki Minaj is reportedly struggling to sell tickets for her 22-day European tour, due to kick off in 3 months time. The 35-year-old rapper has not yet sold out a single date for the tour which was announced in the month of June.
As reported by The Sun, she will co-headline with rapper 'Future'. Nicki stunned crowds while performing her opening number at the MTV European Music Awards and was reportedly banking on the performance to draw in the sales. A music insider told the Sun, "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".
"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," the insider continued. "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.
Nicki's upcoming tour and shows will mark the first time that she will be touring in the UK in four years and follows the release of her album 'Queen' which touched number 5 in August. Her 22-day tour will start in Munich, Germany but has not yet managed to sell a single date out. Nicki Minaj was able to secure the 'Best Look' and 'Best Hip-Hop' gongs at the EMA's.
During the EMAs, Nicki took to the stage to perform a duet with Little Mix and sang their latest hit 'Women like me' which is peaking at number 2 on the charts. Later on that night, Nicki performed with Jason Derulo and David Guetta on the song 'Goodbye'. She was accompanied by a group of backup dancers as she put on a fantastic performance at the event which was held at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre in Bilbao.
While at the EMA's, Little Mix kept their calm and composure given how they had been caught up in a feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. Nicki's feud with Cardi was reignited last Monday when the latter shared that she was actually the group's first choice to sing the track.
However, Little Mix denied the claims and tweeted, "Both were approached by our label to work with us on Woman Like Me, Nicki then Cardi. We went with Nicki because like we’ve said over and over for years, it’s been a dream of ours to work with her since the beginning".
