Nicki Minaj fans “absolutely devastated” by cancelled concert after rapper held at Amsterdam airport


American rapper Nicki Minaj cancelled a show in Manchester, England, on Saturday, after she said she was held by police at Amsterdam Schiphol airport on allegations of possession of soft drugs. Minaj was detained hours before her live performance was scheduled to start, and fans seen leaving the venue expressed devastation and frustration with the cancellation.

One fan said she was upset that the concert venue, Co-op Live, did not let them know about the change of plans sooner and said they could have communicated better. Another fan said he got the cancellation only after he had bought a drink costing 30 Euros during a “cost of living crisis.”

“Absolutely devastated. We’ve come here, got ready, spent all day getting ready to see this happen. I mean, it’s just disappointing, got our hopes up, spent the money and then we get told at the very last minute that she’s not going to show up,” a fan said.

The singer posted a video on X earlier in the evening in which a Schiphol employee apparently told her that police wanted to “search all her luggage”. Dutch military police confirmed a 41-year-old American woman had been held for possession of soft drugs on Saturday, adding it was prohibited to take such substances out of the Netherlands.
