Nicki Minaj becomes the 7th cancellation at Co-op Live just weeks after opening in Manchester

The Curse of Co-op Live Strikes Again: Nicki Minaj Joins List of Canceled Shows Lining Up at Manchester Arena

The brand new Co-op Live arena in Manchester has faced yet another setback as Nicki Minaj became the seventh artist to cancel a show at the venue. The highly anticipated Pink Fridays concert was abruptly cancelled at the last minute, leaving thousands of disappointed fans in its wake.

Rumors began circulating that the gig was running late due to Nicki Minaj being ‘arrested’ in Amsterdam, but the doors eventually opened after 7pm, with concert-goers eagerly making their way inside. However, after waiting for over two hours, attendees were informed via a tannoy announcement that the performance would not go ahead, much to their dismay.

With a capacity of 23,500, Co-op Live is the UK’s newest indoor arena, boasting a hefty price tag of £365m for construction. Despite its grandeur, the venue has been plagued with issues, including cancellations, equipment malfunctions, and delays getting artists on stage.

This latest cancellation adds to the string of setbacks that have plagued the arena since its opening. Artists such as Peter Kay, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, The Black Keys, Olivia Rodrigo, Keane, and Take That have all either cancelled or postponed shows at Co-op Live, contributing to its reputation as a ‘cursed’ venue.

As fans took to social media to express their frustration and disappointment, the future of Nicki Minaj’s rescheduled concert remains uncertain. The Co-op Live arena’s string of cancellations and delays raise questions about the venue’s ability to successfully host future events and ensure a smooth experience for concert-goers.
