One of THE biggest acts in the world today, NICKI MINAJ is thrilled to be heading to New Zealand for her debut Auckland performance.

The ‘Pink Friday Reloaded Tour’, with special guest Tyga, will give New Zealanders the long-awaited and highly anticipated chance to revel in the curvaceous Nicki Minaj live on stage at Vector Arena on Friday, September 28.

Tickets will go on sale at midday, Thursday, 3 August.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale window, beginning 10.00am, Friday 27 July.

Nicki Minaj, the Trinidadian-born American rapper, singer-songwriter, raised in Queens NYC, is a global sensation. Her worldwide album sales exceed three million; she has close to 20 million Facebook ‘Likes’ and an unbelievable 13 million-plus Twitter followers.

Based on a strong reputation rapidly built through mix-tapes and guest appearances, Minaj’s debut ‘Pink Friday’ was one of the most anticipated albums of 2010 and it did not disappoint. Featuring cuts ‘Your Love’, ‘Right Thru Me’, ‘Moment 4 Life’, and ‘Check It Out’ featuring Will.I.Am, ‘Pink Friday’ was certified platinum a month after its release and soon reached Billboard’s #1 spot.

The now multi-platinum debut ‘Pink Friday’ boasts the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history, while Minaj herself became the first artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart simultaneously. Garnering a MTV Video Award, two American Music Awards and three Grammy Awards nominations, it was no surprise Billboard named Nicki Minaj their 2011 Rising Star.

Nicki Minaj’s sophomore album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’, released April this year, is home to the multi-platinum mega-smash ‘Starships’, ‘Right by My Side’ featuring Chris Brown, ‘Beez In The Trap’ and the infectious ‘Pound The Alarm’.

Joining Nicki Minaj at all shows will be special guest TYGA.

Hailing from infamous Compton, performances and mix-tapes built a buzz around Tyga. With the help of Gym Class Hero Travis McCoy, and following a performance on 2007’s MTV Video Music Awards alongside Fall Out Boy and Lil Wayne, Tyga soon released his debut album. 2008’s ‘No Introduction’ features single ‘Coconut Juice’ and Lil Wayne.

VIBE magazine declared him as “one of the best undiscovered rappers in America”.

This February Tyga delivered his highly anticipated follow-up album, ‘Careless: Rise of The Last King’.

The album, featuring tracks ‘Far Away’, ‘Rack City’, ‘Faded’ featuring Lil Wayne, ‘For The Fame’ featuring Chris Brown - and ‘Muthaf**ka Up’ featuring the one and only Nicki Minaj – peaked at #1 on Billboard’s R&B Album and Top Rap Album charts, and #4 in the Billboard 200.

Nicki Minaj, and special guest Tyga, set to lift the roof off Vector Arena this September!
