Thirty minutes before her concert started, super thrilled Cardi B. fans had to deal with the news that it has been cancelled. The reason was understandable, although very worrying, as the rapper allegedly received a security threat worthy to shut the concert down. 

Cardi B’s concert, supposed to take place in Indianapolis, Indiana on July 30, was shelved so suddenly fans were left reeling. According to the police, there was a threat against the rapper, albeit the full details are yet to be verified.

For her part, the "Hustlers" actress took to social media to apologize and explain why she could not perform at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse, wishing for everyone’s understanding of the situation’s gravity. In her post, she showed all the rehearsals she did earlier the day as if to say that she had no plans of shortchanging the fans, working her hardest just hours before the performance so that a perfect concert could be given. 

In the accompanying caption of the video, Cardi B said she was already done with her soundcheck and was already getting ready for the show when something scary compelled her and her team to cancel the show.

“I just want to let you know I was in the venue today. I rehearsed and started doing glam," Cardi said. "Due to a security threat that is under investigation, the show was cancelled. My safety and your safety first.” 

It was apparent that apart from the threat on her safety, she was worried about how fans would handle the cancellation, so she repeatedly apologized, claiming that she never had a similar experience in the past and did not want to take any risk.

Her version of what happened was corroborated by the promoter, Mammoth Live. The statement officially read, “Due to a security threat and safety concerns at this evening’s show, management has advised that this show be postponed. These threats are currently under investigation."

Fans need not fret though. Apart from being currently safe and sound, Cardi B will push through with the concert on a new date, September 11. This was confirmed by Bankers Life Fieldhouse on its social media.
