Nicki Minaj and Juice WRLD had to call off one of the first major deaths of their joint European tour when they experienced some unexpected technical difficulties in Slovakia.
On Feb. 22, the musicians were faced power issues at the Ondrej Nepela Arena in Bratislava.
In a revealing, heartfelt apology to her fans that included a video footage Nicki talking to the crowd at the venue, she narrated how disappointed and bitter she was when it was obvious the show had to be cancelled.
On the gram, Nicki wrote, “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.”
She also said that safety became priority and she and her crew could not “run the risk of someone getting hurt if we start the show & [something] malfunctions mid-show.”
She wrapped up by saying that the tour would go on as planned, and it indeed continued yesterday night (Feb. 24) in Lodz, Poland.
