Cardi B Concert in Indianapolis Canceled 30 Minutes Before Showtime Due to 'Security Threat'

Cardi B was scheduled to perform at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Tuesday night (July 30), but the concert was canceled just minutes before show time.

The venue took to Twitter to announce the news, noting that the show is postponed to Sept. 11, and that "additional details will follow."

In a statement to Billboard, Cardi B's camp explained: "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."

Late Tuesday, Cardi tweeted: "Dear Indiana people I’m so sorry for today. 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."

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department confirmed the safety concerns, tweeting that officials "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."
