Music

The Bronx-born rapper had to cancel her Indianapolis show minutes before she was set to take the stage due to a security threat.

Cardi B, 26, was advised to pull the plug on her concert at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday following Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department warning of an “unverified threat”.

While police officials explained that “there is no immediate threat to public safety”, the Please Me hitmaker has postponed her show until September 11 – and ticket holders for the evening’s event can be used then.

Taking to Twitter, the singer apologised to her fans for cancelling so last minute.

“Dear Indiana people I’m so sorry for today”

She wrote: “Dear Indiana people I’m so sorry for today.”

Posted alongside an empty stage with dancers in the background, she put: “I will like to let you know I was at the venue, I was even rehearsing a new move I been excited to do on my show.

“Unfortunately there was a security threat that is currently under investigation right now. My safety and your safety first.

“I’m so sorry guys I never dealt with a situation like this before and I’m not taking any chances. I love you guys.”
