Nicki Minaj was forced to cancel her concert in Dublin’s 3Arena tonight as a result of “adverse weather conditions”.
According to promoters MCD Nicki had to cancel the gig after some of the equipment trucks didn’t arrive.
Full refunds are being offered to ticket holders and the date has not been rescheduled.
“Nicki Minaj’s concert, which was due to take place at the 3Arena in Dublin today, has been cancelled with full refunds available from this Tuesday from point of purchase,” a spokesperson said.
“Unfortunately the artist, venue and promoters have been unable to reschedule the concert despite great efforts by all parties.
“The adverse weather conditions which affected Irish Sea sailings over the last 24hrs resulted in only half the trucks carrying their equipment arriving ahead of the concert.
“Nicki Minaj apologises for any inconvenience caused to fans due to these unforeseen circumstances.”
It is understood that some of the staging equipment had not arrived by 5pm this evening.
The news comes just two hours before Nicki was due to take the stage at 8pm, leaving thousands of fans disappointed.
One fan said: “Flew all the way to Dublin on st Paddy’s Weekend and to get a text two hours before the show saying it’s cancelled, great.”
While another posted on social media: “Being looking forward to your Dublin show for almost a year now, today’s my birthday and you cancelled an hour before I’m ready, poor form”.
