    MY Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review

    My negative Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review from Miami, Florida (July 24th, 2012): The concert was short. Mostly every song she performed was cut in half... meaning she would only do a few verses (if that)! She was late to her own concert, figures my luck... the second show she was late to was mine... and of all places.. Miami, Florida!? I understand traffic, weather conditions, personal issues, etc... however, that is very unprofessional... for her OWN first independent tour, really.. especially for the VIP, since we are the only ones paying (EXTRA) for it whether we like it or not! If I would of gone without the VIP Upgrade experience, I think I would of enjoyed the concert better, even though that means not meeting Nicki Minaj... it just would of been SO much less drama. I never thought I would say that either! I mean, it's fricken Nicki Minaj! And sadly, I lost some respect for her after this experience... still love her 100%, just felt like I didn't get what I paid for. Didn't get my autograph like I was promised, and basically didn't get early acess to the venue due to us waiting on Nicki to arrive! :/ The worst was after the show... we formed as a group (of the VIPS) at the right end of the stage (where we formed a line earlier that night for our pics with Nicki) to try and confirm why we didn't get our boob signings or autographs. And let me say, they were SO rude! First the security with remarks like "if you guys don't leave we are going to have the police escort you out!" They just treated us like we were the problem, when all we wanted is what WE paid for, and were TOLD we were getting! THEN Nicki's manger later tried buying us off with a picture of nicki from the merchandise stand that anyone could buy for 10$, and then avoided the questions about the autographs purposely **so it seemed anyways..like he was doing us a favor? And kept asking who got their VIP laminates, and who didn't get one earlier... like that is crazy to me, yeah buy me off with these cheap things *sarcasm* (yes, it was a cute pic, but it came in a set with two other pics of nicki **same pics found in her Roman Reloaded album CD case** And this set of pics sold for $10 dollars at the merchandise stand.) Last time I checked my VIP Upgrade totaled at $260.. you do the math!!? And we mostly had our laminates by this point.. -_-

    So as I decide what actions to take, I hope you take all my thoughts and rambles into consideration. Have a good time, or try.. and if you had a awful time... PLEASE CONTACT...

    My postive Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Tour Review from Miami, Florida (July 24th, 2012): Well Nicki looked beautiful, which is no surprize! And she seemed so sweet and down to earth at the meet and greet (the two seconds I was there for...) and the show was great (although to me, personally not as well as her touring with Britney Spears in the Femme Fatale Tour, but that could of been because I felt like she performed longer at Britney's show...). She stage presence was AMAZING. Even if you were in the far away seating, you could tell she really had love for all of us, and it seemed like she was having a good time on stage! She performed "Save Me" and she had the cutest outfit, it was probally my favorite.

    I don't know why anyone would think if we had a completely AMAZING time we would be on here posting such awful things about our idol, Minaj. I mean, I would be on Facebook bragging or something. We are all friends here, keeping each other updated. So CHILL! D: I wouldn't be writing all of this if I didn't have a problem, and wasn't so annoyed with all this! Haha I know I am going to get hate for bringing you guys down who haven't attended yet. I am staying hopeful for you guys, but take everything you're reading on here seriously, or with a grain of salt... but I am telling you guys JUST BE PREPARED FOR WHATEVER HAPPENS BARBZ!!!!

    Just got back from the Houston show.

    let me say what happened with the vip. So they said get there before 6pm, which we did and thats when they let us in. they had told us to go through and meet at the staircase by 7:45 and so we all decided to head over there and wait which the arena staff didnt let us do since they said that part was closed so we moved down a little and waited. they finally let us go up once the regular people started coming in so we go up there and wait in this dark hallway with very little light. so we wait there for like 2 hours and they come out saying that nicki is running late and it will happen after the show. so after the show, we line back up and she walks by us and personally apologizes for being late and she gave us pizza, chicken and soda/water. then we go in one by one and get a photo, after we leave the room we got an autographed photo and the laminate.

    it really wasnt terrible at all like i expected it to be. idk why y'all said it was horrible.

    So would it be at anyway possible for me to get my vinyl record signed? It needs to happen! AND did you get floor seats or the original assigned seats that you bought from ticketmaster?

    highly doubt it, unless you leave it with them and pick it up after the show (thats if you really trust them with it) but our venue had seats on the floor (which was my original assigned seat) but it also counted as a floor seat...(kinda like how britney did hers for the femme fatale tour)

    its been looking the same as the other ones, where you go to the will call (or box office) before 6pm and they tell you where to line up. you should get your email 24-48 hours before your show. if you have twitter, you should get text notifications from the groundctrl account cuz they tweet when they send them out =]

    at the houston one, before they let us in, a lady came by with a piece of paper and asked for id, marked your name off and gave you a wrist band. it should happen similar to you =]

    Speaking of seats, does anyone have pictures of their venue they attended where there's a "pit"? I have front row tickets but it looks like the "pit" is in front of me. A little bummed out but I'd like to see the amount of room this pit holds to see how many people I actually have to look over. Thanks!

    as long as the name you submitted for the vip matches a photo id (that matches your face) with the same name, you will be fine

    Without trying to be rude, why on earth would you pay $250 just to complain about meetin Nicki?! Also it's not Nickis fault that your M&G was unorganised. She has no control over the situation other than her time with you. I was lucky enough to have a great experience but I think it was mostly down to me making the most out of it. Please do NOT blame Nicki for bad experiences.
    Nicki was so lovely towards me & made me feel so comfortable. I was a wreck when I met her and she calmed me down and was just so amazingly nice! I hugged her 4 or 5 times, she held my hands, wiped the tears off my face and kissed my cheek. I got my boob and laminate signed and had around 3 minutes with her. Honestly if you are waiting for your M&G, don't go with a negative frame of mind. Stay positive and make the most out of your time ever if it's only 10 seconds. Enjoy and encredible show :)

    I highly doubt people paid $250 to meet Nicki "just to complain". They have just as much right to post their experiences as the people who were fortunate enough to have a great one. Some people didn't get the experience that they PAID for, whether you may have doesn't change that fact.
    I had a great time and I'm very thankful for that but I sympathise with everyone else who did not enjoy their VIP experience.
