Eminem‘s Australian tour is set to start February 2014. Recently adding Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, J. Cole, Action Bronson and 360 and to his lineup. The official statement reads: “Eminem has handpicked the now, and the next, for the debut dose of ‘Rapture’.” The run will open with Eminem’s first-ever date in New Zealand (Auckland, Feb. 15), and then visiting each of Australia’s big-three cities (Melbourne, Feb. 19; Brisbane, Feb. 20; Sydney, Feb. 22).
Australian hip hop star 360 will support and New Zealand rapper David Dallas is confirmed to play the Auckland date. “I’m pretty stoked,” Dallas told Billboard. “Eminem has generations of fans in New Zealand. He’s never been here, so it’s going to be huge. Dallas, who admits to being a “huge fan” of Eminem, supported Lamar on his December 2012 show at Auckland’s Powerstation. “It was completely rammed, the energy and the way people reacted to the record was amazing,” he recalls. “They knew the songs inside out.” What are your thoughts on the added acts to his tour? If this concert was in the states would you go? –Joi Pearson @joiapearson
