22 October, 2012: THE PINK. DEAR LORD - THE PINK! Nicki Minaj landed in Manchester last night for the latest date on her UK tour and her stage was one of the most violently coloured we've seen in a long, long time.
Backed by a troupe of opened shirted male dancers and fierce looking females, Minaj emerged from a bright pink (obviously) spaceship at Manchesters MEN Arena - although it was clearly one of the 'Starships' from the title of her international smash hit single.
Dressed in black, Minaj somehow managed to prevent herself from spilling out of her dress as she performed in front of a huge, illuminated set. Colour speaking, it was the polar opposite of a Mumford & Sons gig.
Check out photos of the gig here - if your eyes are up to it...
