“This evening, there was a scheduled concert at Bankers Life. We 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 is not an active incident. Ongoing investigation,” the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement on Twitter.
The Grammy-winning rapper took to Twitter to apologize to fans. She shared a message, along with a video from the stage, saying she had been rehearsing just before the concert was scrapped.
“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,” Cardi B tweeted. “Unfortunately there was a security threat that is currently under investigation right now. My safety and your safety first.”
The hip-hop star had been scheduled to perform along with special guests, rappers Kevin Gates and Saweetie.
A statement from Bankers Life Field House said the show would be rescheduled for September 11, and all tickets for the original date will be honored.
