Moments ago, Jay-Z and Eminem appeared on ESPN’s Wednesday Night Baseball at Detroit’s Comerica Park. In game two of the day-night double-header, the duo watched the game from a private box, joined by Royce Da 5’9”. During the fourth inning, both announced to the ESPN staff that they were using the backdrop of baseball to do special performances on a co-headlining bill.
On September 2 at Yankee Stadium in New York, followed by September 13 at Comerica, Em and Jay will host co-headlining concerts. Jay will open for Eminem in Detroit, while the Shady Records founder will open for Jay-Z in New York.
Asked if the duo will make a new music collaboration since 2001’s “Renegade,” Jay-Z waved off the question, stating that music must come “naturally.”
Additionally, the Roc Nation head spoke about his Yankees World Series performance with Alicia Keys last year, while Eminem stated that he was taking in an interest in the Detroit Tigers again after years removed from baseball.
