Update: Eminem & Jay-Z to Play European Music Festivals

Eminem and Jay-Z are set to grace the same stage at a handful of music festivals overseas this summer in Ireland, Scotland and Switzerland.

Em will headline Openair Frauenfeld in Gampel on July 9, T In the Park in Shire on July 10 and top the bill the following day at Oxegen in Dublin —the first time Shady has played in Ireland since 2003, according to BBC News.

As previously reported Hov is also scheduled to be the concluding act at both the 11th annual Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California this April and the Bonaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee in June.

Tickets for Openair and T in the Park go on sale on Thursday, February 25 and Friday, February 26 respectively. Seats for Oxegen will be available starting March 12. —Donovan Moore

    Should be f*ckin class though, Oxygen can stand face to face with any global festival.

    Em’s doing shows nowadays like he’s broke or something. I remember in his heyday he wouldn’t even touch the grammy’s or BET with a ten inch pole.

    Sidenote: what do black folks in Ireland sound like? Reminds me of that crazy starburst commercial an Asian Scottsman wearing a kilt and carrying bag pipe with a thick ass accent schools his kid on contradictions.

      If they’re Irish, they sound Irish. If they are Nigerian, they usually sound Nigerian. If they’re American….. oh shit, you get the point.

        its the half accents i think are funny, like if they’ve been living in ireland for a while and they have nigerian accents with an irish sound
