Cardi B postpones concert following unverified “security threat”

The show has been rescheduled to September.

Cardi B was forced to call off her recent concert in Indianapolis due to an “unverified threat” against the rapper, Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement yesterday. 

The Grammy-winning rapper was set to perform at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday night, but canceled the show just half an hour before it was due to begin. The concert included guest performances from Kevin Gates and Saweetie

Cardi later took to Twitter to apologize to her fans, explaining that it was important for her to shut down the gig for safety reasons. 


“Dear Indiana people I’m so sorry for today,” she tweeted. “Unfortunately there was a security threat that is currently under investigation right now. My safety and your safety first.” The rapper also shared a rehearsal clip, adding that she had been excited to perform a “new move” for the crowd. Check it out below. 

According to authorities, the police are currently looking into the case. The IMPD also said that there was “no immediate threat to public safety” and that it was “not an active incident.” Investigations are still ongoing. 


Meanwhile, Bankers Life Fieldhouse announced that Cardi’s concert has been postponed to September 11. Tickets from the show’s original night will be honored, but fans who are unable to attend the rescheduled performance can opt for a refund.
