Starships were meant to fly to Mildura? Nicki Minaj shares fan's unlikely pitch

COULD global hip-hop superstar Nicki Minaj be on her way to perform in Mildura?

It would appear far-fetched, given the Starships singer is known to sell out venues in some of the biggest cities in the world.

But when a Spanish fan this week used Twitter to request concerts at a list of destinations, captioned with “Nicki please we need you”, Mildura somehow made the fan’s list.

Then Minaj herself shared the post, along with: “I’m already scheduled to be in some of these places next year babe. The others I’ll add.”

Melbourne was the only other Australian city on the fan’s list, which led one user to question where Mildura was and another to ask why Sydney wasn’t included.

While Minaj’s tweet shouldn’t be taken as concrete evidence she’ll visit Mildura, it’s worth noting Australian dates for her upcoming tour haven’t been announced yet.

She starts touring the United States with rapper Future in September, with international dates starting in February next year.

Most of the shows are at large indoor arenas with capacities of more than 15,000 people.
