Minaj’s longevity has been a topic of much discussion recently, and her latest milestone only adds to her legacy. Not only did she claim the highest-grossing tour by a female rapper, but she also secured the highest-grossing concert. Touring Data reports that Minaj’s Madison Square Garden show on March 30, 2024, grossed an astonishing $2.858 million, the biggest of any shows on her current tour.

The triumph of Minaj’s tour is a natural progression, given the success of her recent album. 

Pink Friday 2 has set records and marked significant milestones in Minaj’s career. It recorded the highest first-week vinyl sales by a female rapper in History and secured her third number-one album. Furthermore, Pink Friday 2 delivered Minaj’s first solo #1 single, “Super Freaky Girl.” 

The PF2 tour will continue its journey across the United States, making stops in cities like Brooklyn, Texas, and Chicago, before concluding on June 14 in Belgium.
