EMINEM Finally… Perth

It’s time to lose yourself in the music, the moment… Eminem has announced his first ever Perth show at Optus Stadium next year, set for Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Tickets go on sale 2pm local time next Monday, October 22.

Eminem’s fiercely loyal Australian fanbase has been willing the rumour mill into overdrive for some time, and now their prayers have been answered: the rap god is on his way. Special guests will be announced soon and join the line-up for this second instalment of the RAPTURE 2019 stadium tour.

Critics have described the Detroit rap icon’s rapidfire flow, expansive phrasing and acerbic lyrics are awe-inspiring to witness live. On Eminem’s 2018 headline Coachella set, Rolling Stone gushed, “Everything that made Slim Shady one of the most essential voices of his generation was onstage this weekend.”

The 15-time Grammy award winner and biggest-selling rapper of all time dropped his surprise 10th studio album Kamikaze unannounced on August 31 this year and it flew straight to #1 on the Australian Albums chart where it retained pole position for four consecutive weeks, becoming the MC’s ninth chart-topping album in this country.

Eminem’s previous Australian visit for 2014’s Rapture Tour thrilled audiences at sold-out stadiums across the country and every seat was filled during his previous Lose Yourself Australian tour in 2011. He’s no stranger to selling out stadium shows in less than 30 minutes in this country, and now it’s Perth’s turn.

Kamikaze is out now. Eminem has announced his first ever Perth show at Optus Stadium for Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Tickets go on sale 2pm local time next Monday, October 22 from Ticketek.
