Nicki Minaj totally canceled the planned North American tour with Future, according to a statement from Live Nation, because she “has decided to reevaluate elements of production on the ‘NickiHndrxx Tour.’” This comes after her surprise performance Monday at the VMAs.

Some people report that ticket sales were low, and that’s the reason why she canceled. Recently, the rapper went after a bunch of people including Travis Scott and other streaming services when Queen lost its release-week battle for No. 1 album to Travis’s Astroworld.

“I put my blood sweat and tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have [his girlfriend] Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & [her daughter] Stormi,” she tweeted after her LP fell 20,000 album-equivalent units short of the Billboard 200’s top spot. “I’m actually laughing. #Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries.”

As Page Six reports, the tour will now launch in February with a previously announced European run. Refunds for the canceled North American dates will be available at point of purchase, and Nicki will announce new on-sale dates soon.
