Multi platinum selling superstar Nicki Minaj, who is currently celebrating yet another top ten hit with her new single ‘Pound The Alarm’, has announced that Misha B will be joining her on her previously announced ‘Pink Friday Reloaded’ UK Arena tour this October/November as special guest.. The ‘Pink Friday Reloaded’ Tour will stop in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena on Thursday 25th October 2012 and now following a sell out of this date, also Sunday 28th October 2012.

Misha B is one of the UK’s hottest artists of 2012, she recently released her debut single ‘Home Run’ through Relentless Records, which entered the UK charts at number 10 last week. Having amassed a huge following, including A-listers lining up to work with her, she has 237,000 followers on Twitter, 66,000 fans on Facebook and has already had over 7 million views on YouTube. Speaking on her addition to this incredible tour, Misha said

"I'm over the moon to be Nicki's support on her UK tour!  Really looking forward to catching a vybz and gettin out there and performing new songs.  Woohoo Woop Woop!"

Joining Nicki and Misha on the bill, for what is sure to be one of 2012’s most spectacular tours, is Young Money’s latest rising star Tyga.Tyga’s standout performances on Young Money’s ‘We Are Young Money’ album (notably on the singles “Bedrock” and “Roger That”), Chris Brown’s “Deuces” and a multitude of well-received mix-tapes set the stage for his highly anticipated Young Money/Cash Money debut album, ‘Careless World: Rise of The Last King’, which includes the debut single “Far Away” featuring Cash Money artist Chris Richardson.

Nicki Minaj, unarguably the most exciting, colourful and larger than life artist to emerge in recent years, recently wowed crowds with her main stage performance at Radio 1’s Hackney Big Weekend on the Saturday and two sell out performances at HMV Hammersmith Apollo, Birmingham NIA Academy and Manchester O2 Academy. With almost 4 million albums sold, 20 million likes on Facebook, 13 million followers on Twitter and a global profile growing by the day, 2012 is the year this 5’ 2” phenomenon truly arrived.
