Nicki Minaj might be openly pissed that rapper Travis Scott's Astroworld beat out her anticipated album Queen for the top spot on the Billboard charts (even throwing a Twitter dagger at Scott's wifey Kylie Jenner for using her social media superstardom to plug his record) but the numbers don't lie — people really fucking love Astroworld.

Scant details of the 26-year old Houston rapper's upcoming Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour were announced Monday, hours before he is set to take the MTV Video Music Award stage, an event where he and Jenner were slated to be scandalously seated behind Minaj and then moved per his request, according to TMZ.

Scott teased the tour via Twitter last week, with Little Caesar's Arena confirming his Detroit stop on Dec. 5 earlier this afternoon.

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 24 and start at $29.50 and can be purchased here.
