Eminem Announces Tour Dates With Kendrick Lamar And J. Cole
Looks like Kendrick Lamar is staying busy. After serving as the opener for Kanye West's ongoing Yeezus tour, the current XXL cover-star will hit the road for a string of dates opening for the "Rap God" himself: Eminem. Following the release of the Marshall Mathers LP 2 toward the end of the year, Eminem will head to Australia and New Zealand for four dates in February.
As Billboard explains, the dates are being marketed as "Rapture" shows with multiple openers. In addition to Lamar, Eminem will be joined by J. Cole, Action Bronson, Australian rapper 360, New Zealand artist David Dallas and, according to Fake Shore Drive, Chicago's Chance The Rapper. The tour will kick off with Eminem's first ever show in New Zealand, before hitting up three stadiums in Australia.
