Rapper Nicki Minaj has revealed European tour dates with Chicago’s Juice Wrld following the cancellation of her North American tour earlier this year.
The trek will kick-off in Munchen, Germany on February 21, followed by shows in Slovakia, Hungary, Denmark, Berlin, and Norway. Geneva, Switzerland will close-out the outing on March 28. During all shows, Juice Wrld will open the show; the rapper is replacing Minaj’s original guest, Future.
“I’m so excited to bring the full Nicki Minaj experience to my fans in Europe,” Minaj said in a statement. “I have been carefully crafting the most exhilarating, unique, memorable piece of art to share with my incredible fans. I’m in love with Juice Wrld’s music & feel so stoked to have him join me. This will be one for the books.”
The announcement comes after Minaj abruptly cancelled her North American leg of the NICKIHNDRXX tour with Future over the summer. She claimed that the tour was rescheduled to “reevaluate elements of production” and “contribute more time to rehearsal,” since her fourth studio-album Queen had recently dropped. However, according to Page Six, low sales contributed to the cancellation.
In August, Minaj revealed that her North America tour has been rescheduled to begin after the European run, and she will be headlining a solo tour. At this time, she hasn’t announced North America dates.
“I haven’t CANCELLED anything,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “I reversed the order of the US & EUROPEAN LEGS of my tour. This is for obvious reasons to anyone with a brain. My album was originally going to drop in June which would’ve given me 3 months of tour rehearsal. However, I was still writing & recording up to last week. We are all grown right? We can all do math right? Or will they just pretend to not have basic sense so that they can board the Nicki Hate train & get some clicks? I can’t rehearse 4 WEEKS for a tour I originally planned on rehearsing 3 months for. I give my fans QUALITY.”
Minaj will be touring Europe and North America in support of Queen, which has hit Platinum. The record features hit singles “Chun-Li,” “Barbie Dreams,” and “Bed,” featuring Ariana Grande. Queen comes four years after Minaj’s The Pinkprint.
