Although not officially announced, Eminem will be back on tour in early 2014 with a star-studded entourage of Hip-Hop artists. The Detroit hard-hitter will be joined by fellow Aftermath signee Kendrick Lamar, Chicago’s Chance the Rapper, as well as New York’s Action Bronson. The others accompanying Eminem has done to the current Hip Hop world, what Eminem did in his heyday: shake it up. So, it makes sense that the title of the tour is The Rapture Tour. Sadly though, it appears to only be taking place in Australia.
According to Showbiz.com.au, the run will open with Eminem's first-ever date in New Zealand (Auckland, Feb. 15), before visiting each of Australia’s big-three cities (Melbourne, Feb. 19; Brisbane, Feb. 20; Sydney, Feb. 22).
An official announcement should take place next week. No word as of yet if this tour (or a similar one) will be expanding beyond the Australian border.
Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will arrive on November 5, 2013.
