Safety first! Cardi B was forced to cancel her concert after a security threat alarmed her and the venue.
Cardi, 26, was scheduled to perform on July 30, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis but took to Twitter that night to inform her fans that that show will not go on. “Dear Indiana people I’m so sorry for today. I [would] like to let you know I was at the venue [and] I was even rehearsing a new move I [have] been excited to do on my show,” said Cardi with a video clip of her rehearsing at the arena. “Unfortunately, there was a security threat that is currently under investigation right now. My safety and your safety first,” she continued.
The rapper continued to show fans her disappointment through a video message she posted to Twitter on July, 31. She showed us how she was in the middle of getting ready with her hair in a towel and eye shadow on when she got word that show would have to be canceled. “I know you guys have been waiting a long time for me to come here,” she said. Before the video was cut off, she continued to say, “there has been some threats going on.”
The venue also posted to Twitter with an “urgent” message stating that the show “will not be played as scheduled.” The concert is set to be rescheduled for September 11 and all tickets from the original date will be honored. Cardi later reposted the message from the stadium.

There is no word yet on the specifics of the threat, though fans were supportive of the decision to shut down the event. One user replied to the rapper’s tweet writing, “Thank God you’re safe. Safety comes first for EVERYONE. You did the RIGHT thing Cardi. Sending you good vibes and lots of love. Keeping you in my prayers,” while another comment stated, “Respect! Just promise you’ll come back in September for sure! Indiandians and Ohioans need your drip drip!”
The “I Like It” singer kicked off her highly anticipated debut arena tour on July 23, in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cardi knows safety and family matter most in life and even called off a few dates back in April 2018 to make time for her daughter, Kulture, now 12 months old. She is still set to perform at her next tour date.
