The British Isles aren’t exactly known for their perfect weather, but it’s been particularly rough lately. Wheelie bins can be heard clattering down streets left right and centre, people have been getting their big coats back out of the closet, and Nicki Minaj has been forced to cancel a show in Dublin (March 15).
“Unfortunately, due to adverse weather conditions which have affected Irish sea sailings over the last 24hrs resulting in some equipment trucks not arriving, Nicki Minaj has been forced to cancel her concert tonight (Friday 15 March 2019) at Dublin’s 3Arena,” reads a statement from MCD Productions, with an apology attached.

Originally fans were told to hold onto their tickets in case the Republic of Ireland gig could be rescheduled, but further updates said this was impossible and that the cost will be refunded.
This cancellation just adds to the problems Nicki’s been having on her current tour with Juice Wrld, which was announced on her Beats 1 radio show in early February. She’s already had to cancel another two shows: one in Bordeaux, due to the venue’s inability to provide adequate technical facilities (according to an now-deleted Instagram post), and one in Bratislava, Slovakia, for the same reasons.
Fans have been reassured that Glasgow’s SSE Hydro show tonight (March 17) will still go ahead, though, and that her equipment’s already on-scene.
A message from the show promoter: "The Nicki Minaj ft. Juicewrld show at Glasgow's SSE Hydro will go ahead as planned tomorrow night. Despite speculation online, the show is still scheduled to take place and production vehicles have already arrived in Glasgow." @gigsinscotland
