Nicki Minaj Readies Headlining Tour

Published: Thursday 26th May 2011 by David

Fresh from her eye catching appearance at the Billboard Music Awards, Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she is headlining her own tour. The platinum selling Hip Hop character spilled the beans during an interview with David Guetta to promote the single ‘Where Dem Girls At’.

Speaking directly to US Magazine, the 26 year old revealed:

“Next year, I’ll be headlining my own tour”, she also went on to discuss how her upcoming role as Britney Spears‘ support act is helping her prepare. “So this is my time to be a student and to learn and to absorb all of this information and then take that knowledge and create an amazing ‘Pink Friday’ tour at the top of 2012,’ she said.

With her militia of Barbs and Ken Barbs already proving their support by taking Pink Friday to platinum status, Minaj and Co. can be sure that this tour will have little trouble filling seats. Let’s hope this tour will showcase the talent so many have tried to discredit since her arrival on the music scene.

    seriously…if Rihanna is having problems, Nicki will. Nicki has only had ONE hit on her own. The rest of her songs all have somebody else on it. Is this going to be the Nicki and friends tour?

    “So this is my time to be a student and to learn and to absorb all of this information and then take that knowledge and create an amazing ‘Pink Friday’ tour at the top of 2012.”

    Nicki girl I love you, but Britney Spears is the wrong teacher if you want to put on a great show that doesn’t bore people.

    Girl please the only people who sell tictkets are the ones who are known for putting on great live shows ….Nicki has work to do…..I like her but sh needs more seasoning and more songs to carry a entire tour ……..What she has to do is step up her live performances on awards shows that way she can create a buzz for being a great live performer……Remember how in 2009 Gaga was killing award show performances like the muchmusic awards and Mtv ……Kayne was going on tour with her but he dropped out but she didn’t need him she went on tour alone and was on tour for over 2 yrs because she can put on a show……people want to see dancing, camp, theatrics the whole package ….we aren’t going to pay to see a b**** come out and prance around in heels for 2 hours ….b**** we want to see you sweat now is Nicki ready to sweat ?

    To Headline a tour doesn’t mean arenas and stadiums. It will be her tour and may feature other artist. Nicki can do clubs or even smaller venues and still be the headliner. Nicki has millions if followers + that ablum went platinum. I sincerely wish her all the best.

    Nah Boo Boo you need to #sitthefuckdown.com!

    That little Billboard Award show performance with semi-conscious Britney Spears (they are really going to have to lower that chick dosage) didn’t show me a thing. Her star is already fading. I doubt if it holds strong through 2012!!

    @bey’knight Nicki didn’t say what type of venues she will be performing at though? + she said next year so she more than likely have another album out by then.

    britney’s pb is that she has a contract w/ her record label whose obligations she must fulfill, otherwise i think she would have gotten out of the game a long time ago.

    @BEYFAN4EVER
    You have to be the best beyonce fan I have ever seen online

    And @dimplepuppet said it right, if Trey songz, keyshia cole, wiz khalifa, drake, ect can headline a tour, Nicki minaj certaintly can. Every tour is not large arenas. Nicki has a proven fanbase and it’s best to start small (theaters is hwere she should be now).
    It’s the typical step, clubs, theaters, arenas & collisseums, worldwide arenas.
    I remember Beyonces first tour was with a power group, Missy elliott, and alicia keys. Why can’t people let Nicki make her progress into super stardom?

    She’s not seasoned enough to tour alone, her performances are still a little awkward. When it comes to her theaters would be her best bet first, unless she’s selling out at an enormous rate.

  46. SmoothCriminal May 27, 2011

    well if she have the confidence to do it,and is working on her stage performance,i see nothing wrong with her headlining her own tour,she will have to do it sooner are latter,as far as i see it she isn’t getting any smaller.

    Now i lov me some Nicki but ma your not a performer… i dont think Nicki is strong enough as a performer thats why she has alot of props and “extras” on stage with her… I think the idea in itself is a good one but she needs to be working on her performaces… thats one major thing she is not able to do… people but tickets for performances and peope buy Cd’s for music… she has yet to command the audience in any of her performances and to me that would be a flop.. I love and support Nicki to the max but im not delusional im real and i dont think people want to see that..
