On the heels of the release of her "Starships" video, Young Money's first lady, Nicki Minaj, announced the dates for the North American leg of her summer tour. The 14-date concert series kicks off in Chicago on July 16 and will end in Vancouver on August 12.
The news also comes just a couple of weeks after Minaj announced that she'll be crossing the pond this June to pay a visit to her Barbz on the European leg of the same tour. The Live Nation-backed concert series will stop in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Sweden, Norway, Italy and Frankfurt.
In between her North American tour dates Minaj will also appear at a number of major radio station summer stages including the Bay Area's KYLD WiLD Jam 2012 on May 10, Los Angeles' PowerHouse on May 12, Hot 97's Summer Jam in New York on June 3 and WZMX's July 20 show in Hartford.
Both tours will support the release of her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which debuted at No. 1 after it's release in April.
Tickets go on sale for the North American dates on May 4.
