Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday UK tour + tickets to win
Nicki Minaj, one of the hottest artists on the planet, and indisputably the biggest breakthrough artist of 2011, has announced that she will be returning to the UK this June for the ‘Pink Friday’ Tour. She will perform in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Nicki Minaj tickets go on sale 9am on Friday 23rd March priced at £45.00 & £35.00 LONDON / Regionally £40.00 & £32.50 (subject to booking fee) and will be available at www.livenation.co.uk
2011 was an incredible year for Nicki, with her multi-platinum selling debut album PINK FRIDAY boasting the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history. Nicki also became the first artist to have 7 singles on the Billboard HOT 100 chart simultaneously. She criss-crossed the US playing to massive sell-out audiences with friend and mentor Lil Wayne on the sold–out “I Am Music II” tour and then slayed audiences as the special guest on Britney Spear’s US tour. In addition to winning Best Hip Hop Video at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards along with Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album and Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist at the 2011 American Music Awards, Nicki was recently nominated for three Grammys for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album
Nicki’s feverishly anticipated new Young Money/ Cash Money album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded”, will be released on April 2nd, featuring her brand new single “Starships” which was produced by multiple Grammy-winning producer, musician, and songwriter, RedOne, whose 35 international hit singles include a staggering 18 #1 singles, for the likes of Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, and Mary J Blige, to name but a few. “Starships” shows Minaj headed straight into clubland territory – that means heavy synths, an infectious chorus and fist-pumping breakdowns.
With 3 million albums sold globally, 15 million likes on Facebook, 8.5 million followers on Twitter and a profile that is rising by the day, 2012 looks like being an even bigger and better year for this 5’ 2” phenomenon.
