Three strikes, you’re out, Nicki Minaj!
On Friday, music promoter MCD Productions announced the rapper’s Dublin concert for that night has been canceled after bad weather left her equipment stranded.
The company wrote on Twitter:
“Due to adverse weather conditions which have affected Irish Sea saiings over the last 24hrs resulting in some equipment trucks not arriving, Nicki Minaj has been forced to cancel her concert tonight.”
“Nicki Minaj apologises for any inconvenience caused to fans due to these unforeseen circumstances.”

Needless to say, when fans heard the bad news, they were PISSED!
Outside of the 3Arena, where the concert was supposed to be held, people began chanting the name of Nicki’s nemesis/shoe-attacker, Cardi B!

Sadly, this isn’t the first European show the 36-year-old has axed.
As we reported, Minaj was forced to cancel her concert in Bordeaux, France because the venue apparently did not have enough electricity power to pull off her elaborate show.
The musician came out on stage — just minutes before the performance was supposed to start — and broke the news to the audience.
Just like in Dublin, fans began yelling, “Cardi B!” in retaliation!
In response, the Young Money artist wrote on Twitter:
“Why would an artist cancel a show & lose money? What for? When they’re already in the building, dressed, etc. The artist is just as mad as the fans when a show can’t go on. I love seeing my fans. Nothing can stop me. B4 the show, Juice WRLD & I are just as excited as u guys are.”
In February of this year, Nicki abruptly canceled her performance in Bratislava, Slovakia for reported power issues. Like in France, the MC went on stage to tell disappointed concert goers.
HOWEVER, Slovakian promoters immediately denied Nicki’s claim about power, and blamed the cancellation on the artist herself!
XL Promotion wrote on Facebook:
“!!! Nicki Minaj’s show was cancelled by the artist. The Agency xl promotion in almost twenty years of its existence has not cancelled a single concert. The Winter Stadium of Andrew Nepelu meets all the technical standards and the agency xl promotion respected all the conditions sent by the production of Nicki Minaj. The concert wasn’t made exclusively from the nicki minaj team. We have made a number of large world productions like rammstein, Depeche Mode, Eros Ramazzotti, Lenny Kravitz, onerepublic and many others. The Official Press Release will be issued in a short time. Tickets will be filled in full. All information will be on the website www.xl.sk thanks for understanding.”
