Nicki Minaj in Japan - May 2012
Our dear Friend MiT was on Nicki Minaj-Watch in Japan this past weekend, being one of the few lucky Fans who scored VIP Passes - which included a Meet & Greet - to see her at Tokyo's Yokohama Bay Hall. Minaj launched her Pink Friday Tour in Australia first before taking it to Asia for a few Japanese dates in Osaka and Tokyo. The Tour next makes a stop in Europe early June, with Sweden being first on the map.

All three of Minaj's Japan Shows had sold-out rather briskly, with Fans clamouring to see her sexy neon Spectacle.  After enjoying the Show, MiT tells us "I think the Venues are too small for her!". Although the Setlist varies from Show to Show, the New York-based Singer performed 17 Tracks including Moment 4 Life, current Hit Starships, with her Final Act including both Super Bass and Turn Me On.

Although Minaj is Vancouver-bound in August for a Show, we're still waiting here for Toronto dates to be confirmed. Stay put Barbz.

I had the pleasure of meeting the colourful Minaj last August during a Toronto Stop-off for Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour.  We want more.

Thanks MiT for the Photos!
