The Pink Friday Tour was Minaj's debut concert tour. Its set list mainly drew from her second studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012) and first album, Pink Friday[14]

The tour began in May 2012 with shows in Australia and Asia, then continued on to Europe and North America in June, July, and August 2012. It came to a close on August 14, 2012 in New York City at the Roseland Ballroom.[15] Alexis Petridis of The Guardian, who attended the show HMV Hammersmith Apollo in London, rated the tour with 3 out of 5 stars, saying, "It seems a strange thing to say about a performance that opens with a woman rapping 'I'm a bad bitch, I'm a cunt', but there's something oddly restrained about Nicki Minaj's live show.[16] The final show was a part of a free Pepsi promotional concert. Attendees were only eligible for tickets if they called radio stations Hot 97, Power 105, Z-100, 92.3 Now, and WBLI, or tweeted Minaj or Pepsi on Twitter.[17]
