Eminem To Be First Rapper To Headline London's Wembley Stadium, Odd Future To Open

UPDATE #2: Odd Future is set to open for Eminem at the London event.

Eminem is scheduled to perform in London's Wembley Stadium July 11. 

The rapper announced the performance on BBC Radio 1, according to NME.

"I know Wembley Stadium's huge," Eminem says on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 program.

Em also said he prefers one-off shows over full tours. 

"I'm not saying I'll never be ready for that again," he says, "but right now, this is what's working for me." 

The Michigan rapper also spoke about incorporating live instruments in his stage show. 

"It's definitely better," he says. "It definitely brings a whole new element to it...There's a whole different energy. It's louder. It's more in your face. It's more explosive." 

Eminem is prepping work with Slaughterhouse, Yelawolf and Total Slaughter, his Battle Rap league.

"We're trying to take the best of the best and put them up against each other," he says.

Eminem recently also announced a three city tour with Rihanna, titled "The Monster Tour."

UPDATE: According to USA Today, Eminem is set to be the first rapper to headline London's Wembley Stadium. Wembley Stadium has capacity for 90,000, according to the publication.

    why this poser tyler the creator always put on this fake deep voice?

  • Lil Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne killed Eminem on "No Love" Lil Wayne killed Eminem on "Forever" Lil Wayne killed Eminem on "Drop the World" Lil Wayne killed Eminem on "Stan Pt. 2" As a close friend of Lil Wayne I can personally confirm that Lil Wayne is the best rapper officially. He is the best selling artist of the decade, professional skater, skilled guitarist, successful fashion designer, great actor, perfectionist musician, good mentor, perfect role model and lovely father. Lil Wayne is really multi-talented, his views and classic albums will make him live forever. Weezy is the GOAT. swag

    Of course the first rapper to headline would be a white rapper. Why is he acceptable and other rappers aren't? I'm not impressed

      WEMBLEY IS ABOUT THAT PAPER, IF JAY-Z COULD FILL IT UP THEY WOULD HAVE HIM DO IT

      Damn!!!!!!!! that was some burn by Anonymous

      it's not that he's more accepted it's that he can fill the seats,

    • chur

      well maybe because the rappers you favor don't put on shows at all! with the exception of Jay-Z, Tech N9ne and a few others . The people want to pay for a show not a guy standing around spitting bars. You fucking idiots still don't understand! why should a hard working guy pay for horse shit shows? The majority of rappers can't put on a show! the fucking suck! Be impressed because he will sell out 90,000 people. It's not the consumer's fault they don't like other people. Everyone has different likes and feel the people you like are shit! Bottom Line Em sells out and you're a fucking jealous idiot cunt!
