Minaj headlined the venue in support of her recent album ‘The Pinkprint’, with Ware coming on stage for a duet of their collaboration ‘The Crying Game’. Watch fan-shot footage below.
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has said she considered pulling her tour following the murder of crew member De’Von Pickett. The 29-year-old was stabbed to death in a bar in Philadelphia last month. A 31-year-old man, Pierce Boykin, has been charged with the murder.
Minaj revealed that she did consider canceling the entire tour, but decided “I can’t let anything stop us from putting on the show because that would be quitting. So we’re going to continue the tour in his memory.”
Minaj also spoke about how difficult it was to rehearse after the tragic incident. “My band members took it very hard. They were with him all the time and toured with him for years. When I came to rehearsal after he had been killed, the look on everyone’s face – it was heart wrenching.”

Belfast Odyssey Arena (April 1)
Birmingham Barclaycard Arena (3)
Manchester Arena (4)
Liverpool Echo Arena (6)
