Dallas gets first dibs on Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint North American tour

Dallas gets special treatment for Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint Tour: The rapper/singer will make Gexa Energy Pavilion her first North American stop on Friday, July 17 — and it's her only date in Texas.

The tour is in support of Minaj's 2014 album The Pinkprint​, and she'll be joined by special guests Meek Mill, Rae Sremmurd, Tinashe and Dej Loaf.

After Dallas, Minaj will visit 18 other cities across North America, including Miami, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago and San Diego. The European leg of the Pinkprint Tour started March 16 in Stockholm, Sweden.

The Pinkprint hit No. 1 on both the Billboard R&B and rap charts, but it failed to make it to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 as her first two albums did. Along with the likes of Meghan Trainor and Kim Kardashian, Minaj contributed to 2014's being the year of the butt, thanks to her hit song "Anaconda."

Citi cardmembers will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning at noon on Wednesday, March 18, through Citi's Private Pass® Program. General tickets for the tour go on sale starting Friday, March 20, at 10 am at Live Nation.
