Eminem Australian Tour looks imminent while more rumours surface.
First it was Nui Te Koha of the Sunday Herald Sun banging on for weeks about the ¡®potential¡¯ forthcoming Australian tour for the controversial rapper Eminem. Then it was the supposed ¡®accidental¡¯ leak by the ticketing websitesTicketmaster and Ticketek displaying a presale sign up link for less than 24 hours. Now it¡¯s the strategic street poster campaign launched by the promoters with posters scattered around various vantage points in Melbourne, Victoria. With all the evidence pointing at one thing, we can safely draw the conclusion that an Eminem¡¯s Australian Tour is imminent.
We can only assume that an official announcement is just days away. Some of the more credible rumours include that Eminem will be performing at a stadium style concert as oppose to Big Day Out 2012, as previously speculated.
According to some independent sources, it has been further speculated that Lil Wayne, Royce Da 5¡¯9 and Hilltop Hoods will be supporting the event. These speculations seem somewhat credible when analysing Eminem¡¯s most recent performance at Lollapalooza 2011 on the 6th of August. (Full set list and appearances below.)
The likely dates and venues for the Eminem Australian Tour are:
Sydney ¨C December 2nd 2011 (TBC)
