‘Anaconda’ star Nicki Minaj ‘live’ in Dubai

Hip-Hop sensation Nicki Minaj is heading to Dubai.

The ‘Anaconda’ star will perform at the new concert venue in Dubai, called The Venue @ Dubai Outlook Mall on March 25.

117 Live have announced that Grammy Award nominated superstar is set to perform at their brand new temporary venue.

The 33-year-old singer next month’s show will be the first held at a ‘temporary’ venue next to where Al Ahli Group, along with 117 Live, are set to start work on a giant new 25,000-capacity dedicated open-air amphitheatre – the first of its kind in Dubai – which will open in 2017.

Minaj recently made history, simultaneously occupying four top 10 spots on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart and becoming the first female artist to achieve the feat.

Minaj also has the most hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart of any female rapper in history and is #3 among all female artists on the chart only behind Aretha Franklin and Taylor Swift.

What’s more, twelve of her entries entered the top ten, yielding another record for a female rapper.

Minaj, who has almost 50 million followers on Instagram, was last on tour in summer 2015 with her The Pinkprint Tour all over Europe, US and Canada.

The global star has sold over 50 million singles and 5 million albums worldwide. Minaj has also been the recipient of a bevy of awards including American Music Awards, MTV VMA’s, Billboard Awards, People’s Choice Awards, BET Awards & many others.

As part of the celebrations of this landmark concert in Dubai’s new venue, organisers 117Live, are offering early-bird tickets for just Dh117, including free shuttle bus to the venue.
