Iggy Azalea plans ‘Escape’ to Vegas

She’ll ring in the new year at Drai’s, and now Iggy Azalea has announced yet another Las Vegas show.

A week after earning four Grammy nominations for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, the Australian rapper has released the dates for her “The Great Escape Tour,” which comes to the MGM Grand Garden arena on April 25.

Nick Jonas, Tinashe and DJ Whizz Kid will open the show.

The concert will mark Azalea’s fifth Vegas visit in under a year: She headlined the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in July, played the iHeart Radio Music Festival in September and performed at UNLV’s Pink Party in October in addition to her aforementioned New Year’s Eve gig at Drai’s.

Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Friday.
