DETROIT, MI - The Big Boss is coming to Detroit.

Rick Ross announced Monday night he's going on a "Mastermind" tour that will kick off Nov. 12 at the city's own Masonic Temple.

Tickets, according to the Def Jam website, are expected to go on sale 10 a.m. Friday on the website www.axs.com. Fans in New York won't be able to get tickets until 11 a.m. that day.

The AXS website confirms the Detroit show and upcoming tour, but it doesn't mention ticket prices.

“It’s never been done like this,” said Ross, in a statement on Def Jam's website. “We’ll be performing everything from ‘Tears of Joy’ to ‘Aston Martin Music,’ all with a live band. It's time to remind everyone what Maybach Music is all about.”

Ross' Maybach Music Group is scheduled to release Tuesday a new album entitled "Self Made Vol. 3."
