Nicki Minaj To Embark on Pink Friday: RELOADED U.K. Tour in October
As promised, Nicki Minaj plans to travel across the pond for her international Pink Friday: Reloaded tour in October. The trek is in support of her platinum-selling album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.'
According to her official website, the jaunt kicks off in England's Nottingham on Oct. 21 and hit several U.K. venues including the O2 Arena in London on Oct. 30. Minaj will also hit all the major cities in Australia starting with Adelaide on Nov. 27, Sydney on Nov. 30, Brisbane on Dec. 3 and Melbourne on Dec. 5 before wrapping the tour up in Perth on Dec. 8.
As we previously reported, YM labelmate Tyga will be the opening act on the tour. “I’m very, very excited about that. This is the first time I get to tour with somebody from Young Money, since I branched out on my own," said Minaj about her touring partner.
No word on how this would affect if any her possible judging gig on Season 12 of 'American Idol.' Although there hasn't been an official confirmation, the Hollywood Reporter says that Minaj will reportedly get an $8 million payday for her judging duties on Fox's hit reality-competition show. She also was awarded special allowances for hair, makeup and wardrobe.
