You gotta think that Eminem’s bucket list has to be pretty slim from a musical standpoint. Diamond selling albums, number one songs, and he pretty much performed at every grand stage and arena. Well almost. Now, Eminem will make history on July 11th when he’ll be the first rapper to perform at London’s Wembley Stadium.
Originally, the rapper aimed for Hyde Park but he wasn’t able to get approved, confirming on his Instagram that there has been a change of plans.
“I heard that I wasn’t going to be approved to play in Hyde Park and it made me even more excited to play in London this summer,” said Em. “The easiest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t do it. Thanks to the Royal Parks for making it all possible.”
After crushing London, Eminem will join Rihanna for their “Monster Tour” which will start August 7th in Pasadena, Ca, at the Rose Bowl.
This show will be Em’s first London show since 2001 and the stadium is said to fit 90,000 people. Tickets will go on sale May 9th at 9 AM.
