Cardi B Calls Off Indianapolis Gig at Last Minute, Citing ‘Security Threat’
A Cardi B concert scheduled for Indianapolis Tuesday night was called off less than an hour before showtime, with the performer and her management citing a “security threat” as the reason.
“Dear Indiana people, I’m so sorry for today,” she tweeted later in the evening, two hours after the ticketed showtime. “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.”
Earlier, the Indianapolis Police Department emphasized in their own statement that the threat was “unverified” and there was no known cause for alarm. “This evening, there was a scheduled concert at Bankers Life,” the department said in a tweet. “We were notified of an unverified threat to the artist and the artist canceled this evening’s concert — there is no immediate threat to public safety, this not an active incident. Ongoing investigation.”
The Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis sent out a tweet shortly before the ticketed 7 p.m. starting time, saying, “Tonight’s Cardi B show will not be played as scheduled. Rescheduled date is September 11. All tickets for the original date will be honored. Additional details will follow.”……….read more
