Nicki Minaj and Future, two of the biggest names in hip-hop, are teaming up for a 50-city co-headlining tour that will bring them to North Carolina this fall.

The show first comes Oct. 14 to Raleigh's PNC Arena followed by a stop Oct. 16 at Charlotte's Spectrum Center.

Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at LiveNation.com and the PNC box office, or by calling 800-745-3000. Word to the wise, you'll save on service-charge fees buying in-person at PNC's box office.

The tour, dubbed NICKIHNDRXX, opens Sept. 21 in Baltimore. It will cover 50 cities across North America and Europe.

Preceding the tour, Minaj's fourth studio album "Queen" will be released on Aug. 10. Opening this week is the remake of the 1972 blaxploitation signpost "Superfly," co-produced by Future (real name Navyvadius DeMun Wilburn), who also executive-produced and curated the soundtrack.
