Nicki Minaj @ Peabody Opera House w/2 Chainz } 07.31.12

Nicki Minaj @ Peabody Opera House

Nicki Minaj made her headlining debut in St. Louis, selling out her Pink Friday tour stop at the Peabody Opera House. Minaj and her animated personality were a handful to shoot from the Peabody wings, but I was up to the challenge. Atlanta rapper, 2 Chainz was there to hype the crowd during the opening set and later returned for some guest verses during Nicki’s set.

Nicki Minaj @ Peabody Opera HouseRandom Notes:

-Can’t really say much about either set since I was in-and-out after the standard three-song shoot. Feel free to check out Kevin Johnson’s review of the evening for the Post.

-This was my first time shooting at the Peabody. Beautiful venue. Far shooting from the wing. Thankfully, I was able to sneak away with some shots with my 200m and some extreme cropping, but it was neat to see some of the intense lenses that the other photographers were rocking. Check out Todd Owyoung’s preview post, with some pictures of shooting perspective.

-So we past by 2 Chainz (and entourage) plenty of times that evening. The highlight of the evening was definitely seeing him cruise on his Segway up and down the back alley after his set.
