The hip-hop stars will be one of the first events in the newly remodeled Atlanta venue
The hip-hop hits of Nicki Minaj and Future will help christen the newly renovated Philips Arena later this year.
The pair announced their “NickiHndrxx” tour last week without an Atlanta date, but they will indeed perform on Oct. 25.
Tickets are $56-$182. A pre-sale for Citi cardholders will launch at 10 a.m. June 19 (www.citiprivatepass.com); additional pre-sales from Live Nation, Artist Merch and ZEDGE will take place from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. June 21. Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. June 22 via www.livenation.com.
The concert will be a homecoming date for Future, who just curated and executive produced the soundtrack to “Superfly.” Minaj, meanwhile, will release her fourth studio album, “Queen,” on Aug. 10.
