After opening up for Lil Wayne and Britney Spears last year, Nicki Minaj has announced her first headlining North American tour in support of her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

The summer tour, which comes on the heels of Nicki's recently announced European run, kicks off on July 16 in Chicago, Ill., and travels to 14 major cities around North America, concluding in Vancouver, B.C., on August 12, playing 2,800 to 7,000 person capacity venues.

In addition to her Pink Friday Tour, Nicki's live presence will be bolstered by appearances at some of the summer's biggest festivals, including Hot 97's annual Summer Jam on June 3.

Tickets for Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday Tour go on sale this Friday (May 4), at VIP packages, which include a meet and greet with the rapper, as well as autographs and photos, can be purchased via her website.
