Nas Launches European Tour, New Date Planned For Canceled Show In Croatia

ImageRap superstar Nas has embarked upon an 25-date tour, which kicked off on Tuesday (May 15) at a sold-out show in Amsterdam.

The rapper will hit a number of major European cities during the trek, which includes stops in Berlin, Warsaw and Madrid.

A tour representative also addressed recent reports that Nas skipped a performance in Croatia, due to security concerns.

The rapper was due in the capital city of Zagreb on June 3, for a show promoted by Croatian promoters and local label Aquarian Records, but allegedly backed out for safety reasons.

According to Nas' International tour representative Anthony Saleah, the rapper did cancel the show in April, due to concerns about his safety in the country, which has been stable since 1995.

"We pulled out of the Croatia show in early April due to Nas not being totally comfortable with his safety," Saleah said. "We gave them notice early enough. After the way this tour is going now he does feel more comfortable traveling in all parts of Europe and we do have all intentions of rescheduling his show in Croatia on our next tour in Sept. We also plan to hit Asia, Australia and Africa."

The June 3 date in Croatia has been replaced With a show in Groningen, Netherlands.
