Nicki Minaj postpones Manchester concert after Amsterdam arrest

Fans react as Nicki Minaj refuses to perform 'Starships' at event, calls it a stupid song

Nicki Minaj’s show in Manchester on Saturday night was cancelled after she was detained by police in Amsterdam earlier in the day.

The rapper, who was set to bring her Pink Friday 2 show to the Co-Op Live as part of her tour, was unable to make it to the performance due to the incidents in the Netherlands.

The venue posted an official update: “Nicki Minaj’s scheduled performance at Manchester’s Co-Op Live on Saturday 25th May has been postponed,” it stated.

“Tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled performance which will be announced ASAP.”

“Despite Nicki’s best efforts to explore every possible avenue to make tonight’s show happen, the events of today have made it impossible. We are deeply disappointed by the inconvenience this has caused.”

Nicki Minaj live-streamed her own arrest by Dutch police for allegedly carrying drugs.

She was later released, as confirmed by the Dutch National Police Corps and reported by NME magazine.

Despite the doors opening at 7pm as planned, Minaj’s fans were left waiting until around 9:30pm when it was announced that she would not be performing.

An Instagram Live post showed Minaj being arrested by police in Amsterdam earlier in the day.

“They’ve been trying everything they possibly can to TRY to stop this tour,’ she wrote in one post.

Minaj’s tour comes in celebration of her long-awaited Pink Friday 2 album, which was released in December.
