Eminem Will Be First Rapper To Headline Wembley Stadium


/ May 7, 2014

Eminem will be invading the U.K. this summer as the first rapper to headline London’s Wembley Stadium. During an interview with BBC’s Zane Lowe, Slim Shady announced his July 11 show at the famed venue, which holds 90,000 seats, after ditching his previously slated gig at Hyde Park.

“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,” he said. “The easiest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can’t do it.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, May 9.
