Nicki Minaj congratulates fans after Manchester concert postponed following arrest in Netherlands – La Source – La Source Magazine

Nicki Minaj has expressed her gratitude to her fans for their understanding and support after her concert in Manchester had to be postponed due to her arrest in the Netherlands. The Queens rapper and singer was arrested at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport on Saturday for allegedly trying to transport “soft drugs” out of the country.

Minaj spent approximately six hours in detention before being released and fined, allowing her to continue her journey to the United Kingdom. Despite her efforts to arrive on time, her concert at the Co-op Live arena was postponed. Fans had already been admitted to the venue at 7 p.m., but the announcement of the postponement came around 9:40 p.m. from promoter Live Nation.

Dutch police have confirmed the arrest and subsequent release of a 41-year-old woman who paid a fine before being allowed to leave. The incident caused significant delays and disruption, but Minaj’s fans, known as Barbz, have been remarkably patient and supportive.

In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), Minaj congratulated her fans, writing: “Manchester, I like you. Class act. Give me until (tomorrow) for an update on our new date (please). It will be in June or July, as I mentioned last night. She also promised an “extra surprise bonus” for fans and expressed excitement about her upcoming performance in Manchester, already scheduled for Thursday at Co-op Live.

Minaj reassured her followers that Sunday’s Birmingham concert at Resorts World Arena would be a “magical, beautiful, fun and unforgettable evening.” She even invited her fans to her central Manchester hotel, where she personally interacted with the crowd. One fan, Alvin Christie from Liverpool, praised Minaj’s efforts and criticized the venue’s management. Christie said: “I would say it was very poorly managed. When we arrived at the event, they were actively telling fans that she had arrived and that everyone was going to dance tonight.

Minaj arrived at her Manchester hotel early on Sunday after enduring a long flight delay from Amsterdam and time spent in a cell. She noted on “.

Live Nation released a statement Saturday saying, “Despite Nicki’s best efforts to explore every possible avenue for tonight’s show to take place, today’s events have made that impossible. We are deeply disappointed by the inconvenience this has caused.

The incident adds to a series of problems that have plagued Co-op Live since it attempted to open in April. The venue faced multiple postponements and rescheduling of its first official concerts. American rapper A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie even moved his performance to the AO Arena due to delays, and Co-op Live only started concerts on May 14 with British rock band Elbow.

Minaj, known for hits like “Starships,” “Super Bass” and “Anaconda,” livestreamed her arrest and claimed the drugs found in her luggage were not hers. Despite these setbacks, her fans have shown her unwavering support and Minaj looks forward to delivering unforgettable performances in the near future.
