Eminem recently revealed that he would be headlining his own show at the iconic Wembley Stadium on the 11th of July. Tickets for this special show were made available this morning but as expected, one date in London was never going to be enough.
The July 11th show at the iconic venue will be the first time a rapper has headlined their own show at Wembley, though the site was only ever meant to be a backup plan.
Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, had hoped that he’d be able to perform at London’s Hyde Park but his request was refused, so he picked Wembley as a second choice.
Tickets for the show went on sale just a few hours ago and sold out within minutes. It was confirmed shortly after that a second date was added.
Eminem will now also perform at Wembley Stadium once again on July 12th, with tickets being made available immediately.
Speaking about how the show came about he explained: “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,”
Speaking with BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, Eminem discussed the show at Wembley Stadium and revealed that he will get the chance to work with a live band.
“It’s definitely better, it definitely brings a whole new element to it. There are more things to do with your hands.”
“It’s a whole different energy, it’s louder, it’s more in your face, it’s more explosive. For me, music is about feeling and energy and all that.”
The rapper also explained revealed that he’s planning to shake things up with the new show and bring back some old favourites, as well as new style remixes of his tunes.
