Superstar rapper Eminem has announced he will be playing some massive UK live shows this summer. According to a post on Metropolis Music (a partner of promoter Live Nation), the rap legend will be playing at Twickenham Stadium in London on 14 July and 15 July. Tickets for the shows will go on sale on at 9am on 2 February.
The Twickenham dates are part of Eminem’s first world tour in four years and comes off the back of his worldwide smash-hit return with his recent album Revival, which has been taking fans by storm. Revival hit the Billboard top spot in the US, marking Eminem’s eighth No.1 album, and ‘River’ – featuring Ed Sheeran – became his ninth number one single last week.
In 2014, he became the first rapper to sell out Wembley stadium. Last year, he performed at the Reading & Leeds Festival weekend and wowed the crowds.
Eminem’s agent Steve Strange, told Music Week: “He’s a legend and one good thing about Eminem is that he’s so continuously relevant. From the start of the career right up to date, the guy is one of the hippest and coolest performers that there is in the business and I don’t think that can be denied.”
Eminem had taken a bit of a break from touring a few years ago but now appears to be getting back into the swing of things and he remains as popular as ever.
Strange said of Eminem’s hiatus from touring between 2005 and 2009: “We came back in  to do three events: a show in Switzerland called Openair Frauenfeld, T in the Park in Scotland and Oxegen in Dublin. That was his re-entry back into the live arena and since that we’ve done sporadic touring, where we’ve taken in a mixture of festivals and headlines.
“Every single one of his headline shows have all sold out, by the way, with the exception of none. I’ve had a very consistent career of sell-outs for this guy.”
