Confirmed! Nicki Minaj to Join Britney Spears on Tour
They'll be dancing 'till the world ends!
Britney Spears confirmed on her official website on Tuesday that Nicki Minaj will be joining her for the Femme Fatale tour this summer.
"This is the Femme Fatale tour and I'm thrilled to have the hot Nicki Minaj join me and Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo will get everyone on the dance floor," said the 29-year-old singer. "Can't wait to take the Femme Fatales on the road."
Minaj, 26, will be replacing Enrique Iglesias, 35, for the Femme Fatale tour. On March 29, the day Spears' album was released, she announced a massive concert tour with Iglesias as her opening act; by that night, Iglesias announced that he wouldn't be a part of the Femme Fatale tour after all. (A source told UsMagazine.com: "Enrique didn't need to do a tour with Britney, as he's already on a sold out tour…it was better for him to just continue his own tour.")
Spears' tour kicks off June 16 in Sacramento, Calif. and wraps up August 13 in Toronto, Ontario.
