Fresh off the release of her anticipated music video for “Starships”, Nicki Minaj announces dates for a full-length tour through North America this summer.
The YMCMB hip-hop star is set to head on a 14-date trek, in support of her released recently Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album, on July 16 in Chicago, before making stops in Detroit, Atlanta, Houston, St. Louis and Denver, among other cities.
Then, things are set to come to a close in Vancouver, BC on August 12th.
In addition to her solo dates, Nicki will also play several radio shows including Wild 94.9’s Wild Jam in San Francisco on May 10, 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango in L.A. on May 12, Wired 96.5 Fest in Philadelphia on June 1, Jam’n 94.5 Summer Jam in Boston on June 2, Hot 97 Summer Jam in New York on June 3, and Hot Jam in Hartford on July 20.
She’ll also bring back her intimate meet and greets. Fans can purchase a VIP laminate and lithograph and be the first to enter the venue on the night of the show. During each meet and greet, Minaj will sign autographs and take photos with fans, via VIP packages available at MyPinkFriday.com.
