Nicki Minaj fans were left angry after the American rapper’s gig at Manchester’s Co-op Live arena was called off at the last minute, following her arrest at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

Dutch authorities said Minaj was arrested on suspicion of exporting soft drugs before being fined 350 euros (ÂŁ300; $380) and allowed to continue her journey.

The artist didn’t make it to Manchester in time for her concert on Saturday, which was postponed as about 20,000 fans were in the arena waiting for her to take the stage.

On social media, Minaj said she was in a jail cell for between five and six hours, and finally arrived at her hotel in Manchester around midnight, but hoped to announce a rescheduled date, promising an “added bonus” for those with a ticket.

Minaj is due to continue her tour in Birmingham on Sunday, then visit London and Glasgow, before a second scheduled date in Manchester on Thursday.
