Nicki Minaj has revealed where and when her Pink Friday 2 World Tour will visit New Orleans in 2024.

She is slated to headline the Smoothie King Center on Monday, March 18. 

The New Orleans show is the seventh scheduled date of "Pink Friday 2" tour, following her performance at the Rolling Loud festival in California on March 15.

Minaj, who rose to rap prominence after aligning herself with Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records, is touring in support of her new album, "Pink Friday 2."

The upcoming performance falls less than two years after her previous concert in New Orleans. Minaj headlined the first night of the 2022 Essence Festival of Culture in the Caesars Superdome on July 1, 2022. 

At that show, Minaj introduced surprise guest Bryan “Baby” Williams, co-founder of Cash Money Records, with, “This man changed my life.” He then rapped “Pop Bottles."

Minaj returned for her own Asian-themed “Chun-Li,” and saluted Lil Wayne with, “I don’t think I could love another human being as much as I love Lil Wayne without being related or married to them.”

With that, out popped Wayne in a pair of pink cargo pants. The duo traded lines on “High School,” Wayne fully engaged and fully animated. After three songs, he took off.

At 1:30 a.m., Minaj wrapped up - rapped up? - with the less-R-rated, more-reflective “Moment 4 Life.”
