Nicki Minaj's highly-anticipated debut album is finally scheduled to hit stores on November 23, and the Young Money rapper will kick off a 5-date 'Pink Friday' tour a month before the album drops.

Minaj revealed the album's artwork on Friday (October 15) -- an armless Barbie doll rendition of herself in front of an all-pink-everything background -- before getting back to Twitter the following day to announce the first few tour dates.

The tour will kick off in Philadelphia on October 22, and so far, it will run through October 30 in Trinidad and Tobago. The Harajuku Barbie has been particularly diligent about keeping fans updated on her album and concert information both on Twitter and her official site, after a series of local concert scams in September had fans lining up at colleges to catch her perform.

The first five dates of Nicki Minaj's' Pink Friday' tour are as follows:

Oct. 22: Philadelphia, Pa., Wells Fargo Center

Oct. 23: Washington, D.C., DC Star Night Club

Oct. 24: Waterbury, Ct., Sin City

Oct. 25: Boston, Maine, TD Banknorth Garden

Oct. 30: Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, Jean Pierre Complex
