Hip hop superstar Eminem is getting ready to perform for his fans Down Under and he will be joined by Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole this time around. It has just been announced that the ‘Lose Yourself’ rapper will be headlining four stadium concerts – three in Australia and one in New Zealand – in February 2014.
The ‘Not Afraid’ rapper’s upcoming shows will be billed under the name ‘Rapture’ and the concert promoter Paul Dainty’s Dainty Group is promising a ‘game-changing hip hop event’. In addition to Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, hip hop star 360 will support the shows in Australia, while rapper David Dallas will play the show in New Zealand. Dallas said, “I’m pretty stoked.
