Nicki MiNaj & Future
It’s a summer of blockbuster hip-hop /R&B double-bills rolling through town.
There’s Drake & Migos, and Kendrick Lamar & SZA (sure, that was a whole TDE label showcase, but they were the marquee names), and although Beyoncé & Jay-Z’s On The Run Tour II is skipping Toronto, a newly announced show will stretch the trend into the fall: Nicki Minaj & Future. The high-profile duo are bringing their NickiHndrxx tour to the Air Canada Centre on October 1.
Minaj had been uncharacteristically lying low of late, but now that the rollout is on for her new album, Queen, out August 10, she’s ubiquitous once again. Future, meanwhile, has been quietly consistent for years, his codeine croon never far from the charts.
So this is basically a hip-hop royalty tour. October 1 at Air Canada Centre (40 Bay), doors 6:30 pm, all ages. $57.50-$183.50. On sale June 15. ticketmaster.ca.
