Nicki Minaj Shatters Records with ‘Pink Friday 2’ Tour

Nicki Minaj, the Trinidadian hip-hop sensation, has made history yet again by breaking records with her ‘Pink Friday 2’ tour, solidifying her position as the highest-grossing female rapper in concert history. According to Touring Data, a prominent American statistics company, Minaj’s tour has set multiple milestones, including the highest-grossing tour and concert by a female rapper.

On March 30, 2024, Nicki Minaj commanded the stage at Madison Square Garden in New York, raking in an astounding $2.858 million, setting a new benchmark for female rap concerts. The success of her tour extends beyond this single event, as ‘Pink Friday 2’ has amassed a staggering $34.9 million in revenue from the sale of 220,000 tickets across its first 17 shows.

A tweet from Touring Data (@TouringData) hailed Minaj’s achievement, confirming that ‘Pink Friday 2’ officially stands as the most successful tour by a female rapper in history. Despite only completing 30 percent of the tour, Minaj has already earned a remarkable $34.9 million, with projections suggesting a potential $100 million in total revenue by the tour’s conclusion later this year.

Minaj’s commitment to her global fanbase was highlighted when she expressed openness to including Nigeria on her tour itinerary. Responding to a Nigerian fan’s disappointment over Africa’s exclusion from the tour venues, the self-proclaimed “Queen of Rap” hinted at the possibility of adding Nigerian dates if there was sufficient demand.
