Eminem Rocks London In Very First Wembley Gig

So Eminem is still a thing. Despite the rapper’s career deflating slightly after the 00s, he is still big. Big enough to fill Wembley Arena with screaming fans. In fact, Slim set sort of a record Friday, being the first rapper to ever perform at the massive London venue. Technically, he shared the honour with Dr. Dre, since the rapper/producer joined his former protégé for a couple of songs. Dre treated fans to a couple of vintage track, including Still Dre, Nuthin’ But A ‘G’ Thang and Forgot About Dre.

At 41, Eminem is still going strong and powering through shows.

And he wasn’t the only one helping out Eminem at Wembley. The rapper also brought out Danny Brown and Odd Future to open for him. So overall, it sounds like fans got more than they bargained for with the gig. There was a clear theme to the show, the same one Slim’s been playing on for a couple of albums now: do not mess with Marshall Mathers. He opened with a triple hit of Bad Guy, Square Dance and 3AM.

He obviously knows his fanbase though, as the show quickly moved on to the sing-along (rap-along?) classics like The Way I Am, My Name Is and Without Me. And of course, Shady’s first London gig couldn’t end with anything other than his favorite closer, Lose Yourself. He then repeated the act on Saturday night. Eminem kicks off his US tour with Rihanna on August 7th.
