Eminem Will Make History In London This Summer At Wembley (Audio)
Rebuilt in 2007, London’s beautifully restored Wembley Stadium has featured countless European football games on the pitch and has also been the center stage for mega artists including Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, Madonna, Bon Jovi, and The Killers, but never before has the venue ever held a concert for a rapper.
This year, that all changes. Performing for his first time in London since 2001, Eminem will take the stage at Wembley July 11 as the first Hip-Hop artist to ever headline at the stadium. This is an incredible milestone for Eminem and the genre, as the publicity alone will open the flood gates to new fans in the UK and abroad and has the potential to kick down the Wembley door to feature more high profile Hip-Hop artists.
In an interview yesterday with Zane Lowe on BBC’s Radio 1, the Detroit MC sits down to discuss his upcoming historic performance at the 90,000 seat Wembley, his failed plan to play Hyde Park, his work producing for new Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf albums, and his upcoming rap battle league, “Total Slaughter.”
