EXCLUSIVE: Eminem Tour Confirmed For Feb 2014

Sep 25th 2013 | 4:02pm | Scott Fitzsimons
Eminem is set to confirm a massive Australian and New Zealand tour in October, with an industry source confirming to theMusic.com.au that the February tour is all but ready to announce.

UPDATE: DATES CONFIRMED

Tour dates and line-up have now been confirmed and announced for Australia and New Zealand – head here for details.


The 2014 tour will incorporate single shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane – who last hosted the rapper in 2001 – as well as Auckland. His last visit to Australia was 2011 and it will be his first time in New Zealand.

Sources at Auckland's Western Springs Stadium have advised they are holding a date for a large scale event on Saturday 15 February, however this is not yet officially confirmed to be for an Eminem show.

Eminem currently has no tour dates officially confirmed, but tickets to the February dates will go on sale shortly after the October announce.

Set to coincide with his new album MMLP2, which will be released Tuesday 5 November and is a throwback to his most successful record – 2000's The Marshall Mathers LP, the source has also indicated that ‘big-name' supports will join the shows.

Names being thrown around include Beyonce support Iggy Azealia, who is rumoured to have move Australian dates on the way, as well as would-be visitors T.I., J Cole and NeYo. Kendrick Lamar said he'd return after his first Australian shows last year, and is touring the US with Kanye West until December, but has no confirmed dates beyond that.

Australian audiences can expect a show similar to the one Eminem recently showcased at UK festivals.

At the Leeds Festival The Guardian reported that he united “the factions and pulls the biggest crowd for years… By the time My Name Is and a brutal Lose Yourself turn a muddy field into a hip-hop party, this festival might never be the same again.”

The Telegraph reported that, “A rejuvinated Eminem was a highlight of this year's otherwise predictable Reading Festival… The beefier sound underlined just how on top of his game Eminem is now that the addiction problems of the past are behind him. On stage his energy levels were high and his flow was crystal clear. The crowd, predictably, lapped it up.”
