Nicki Minaj’s Second Amsterdam Concert Scrapped After Marijuana Possession Arrest

Nicki Minaj’s Second Amsterdam Concert Scrapped After Marijuana Possession Arrest

Disappointment looms heavy among Amsterdam’s Barbz as Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 World Tour faces yet another setback with the cancellation of a second concert in their city.

Reported by Deadline, the abrupt cancellation of Minaj’s Amsterdam show on Friday night (May 31) comes in the wake of the rapper’s recent detainment for alleged possession of marijuana. Just one week prior, Minaj found herself in legal trouble at Schipol Airport after authorities reportedly discovered cannabis in her luggage.

The announcement of the concert cancellation was made via Dutch promoter Mojo’s website, where a statement reads, “Due to the events of last week, the Nicki Minaj show on Sunday, 2nd June at Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam will no longer be taking place. Tickets will be refunded at the point of sale.”

Minaj herself documented the arrest on Instagram Live and expressed her dismay towards the Dutch police, as well as her sadness for letting down her fans in the Netherlands. In a since-deleted post on X, she vented, “They’ve been trying to stop me from coming to every show. They took my bags before I could see them. Put it on the plane… This is what it looks like when ppl are paid big money to try to sabotage a tour after all else failed. Everything they’ve done is illegal.”

Following her brief detention and subsequent 350 Euros ($380) fine, Minaj accused the authorities of racial bias, an assertion they vehemently denied. A spokesperson for the Dutch police told the BBC, “We arrested her when we found dozens of joints in her luggage. The lady was released four hours after arrest in consultation with the public prosecutor, and after paying a fine.”

Minaj later revisited the incident on X and her Stationhead channel, expressing her intent to take legal action against the Dutch police. Despite the setback, she promised to reschedule the canceled show for sometime in the summer, aiming for dates in June or July.

In a message to her fans, Minaj wrote, “Please please please accept my deepest & most sincere apologies. They sure did know exactly how to hurt me today but this too, shall pass.
