Nelly cancels mini UK tour

Nelly has reportedly cancelled his mini tour of the UK due to terrorism concerns in London.

The 'Hot In Herre' rapper was expected to kick of his British shows at the capital's Koko club on Monday night (14.12.15), however venue officials at the O2 Ritz Manchester - where the star was to perform on Thursday (17.12.15) announced the American star had axed the entire tour.

A post on the venue's page read: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, Nelly has been forced to postpone his UK tour. Customers are advised to hold on to their tickets as rescheduled dates will be announced shortly & tickets will remain valid for the new shows. We apologise for any disappointment & inconvenience caused."

And according to gossip website TMZ an attorney for the singer had "safety concerns relating to venue security preventing terrorist attacks", but said the scheduled concerts will go ahead at a later date.

The cancelled shows come after the 'Dilemma' hitmaker appeared in a Tennessee court on Friday (11.12.15), to clear his name after a small amount of marijuana, methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and several guns were found on board his tour bus in April.
