Eminem was joined by Dr Dre for a rare performance during an explosive gig at Wembley Stadium last night (11.07.14).

The 'Berzerk' rapper took to the stage after being banned from Hyde Park because of the ''explicit lyrics'' in his songs and became the first rapper to headline a gig at the venue in north London connected by EE- playing to 80,000 fans - who went wild when he collaborated with mega star Dre.

The rappers performed a number of hits including Forgot About Dre and the 90-minute set was crammed full of fan favourites, with a medley of 'Love The Way You Lie' and 'Stan' being one of the highlights on the night.

Better Than The Beatles? Coldplay Top Radio 2 'Favourite Albums' List


Coldplay Beatles Rolling Stones Dido Duran Duran Keane

Chris Martin can rest easy. It wasn’t an April Fool’s joke. It turns out that Radio 2’s listeners really do hold his band Coldplay in higher regard that the likes of The Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. So much so, that they have voted the Coldplay album A Rush of Blood To The Head as their favourite of all time. Coldplay beat the likes of Keane, Duran Duran, Pink Floyd and Dido, who filled out the rest of the top five places.

The poll, according to BBC News, had been held to coincide with the BBC season The Golden Age of the Album and the station’s listeners voted on their favourite albums. The Coldplay album, released in 2002, sold over 2.8 million copies and included the singles The Scientist and Clocks. Jeff Smith, the head of music at Radio 2 said “Musicians such as Coldplay and Dido have struck a chord with listeners and are in good company in the top 10 alongside legendary bands like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, whose appeal remains undiminished after all these years.”

The Rolling Stones didn’t enter the chart until sixth place, with their 1971 album Sticky Fingers and The Beatles went in at eight, after The Pet Shop Boys, with Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Dido Was Reluctant To Agree To Stan Sample


Dido Eminem

Singer/songwriter Dido was reluctant to allow rap giant Eminem to sample her track Thank You for his hit song Stan as she feared he would ruin her hard work.

The British singer was contacted by the hip-hop star out of the blue in 1999 when he sent her a note praising her song and asking for permission to use it in his next single.

Stan went on to become a huge international hit, topping the charts in more than a dozen countries and exposing Dido to a wider global audience - but she admits she was initially fearful of associating with the rapper.

Dido Loved Her Baby Kicking During Vocal Takes


Dido

Dido loved feeling her baby kick when she was recording her new album.

The 'No Freedom' star has two-year-old son Stanley with her husband Rohan Gavin and enjoyed feeling him move while recording 'Girl Who Got Away'.

She told The Independent newspaper: ''I absolutely loved singing pregnant. Usually in the vocal booth it's quite lonely. You're singing away and everyone else is on the other side of the window.

Dido - Girl Who Got Away Album Review


As far as exposure opportunities go, having the world's most talked-about rapper sample your work is hard to top.  'Stan' was the catalyst for Eminem becoming a megastar, but the effect it had for a then unknown Dido wasn't too shabby either:  29 million album sales since make any other facts unnecessary.

Dido - Girl Who Got Away Album Review

Album four sees the songstress once again collaborate with her brother Rollo Armstrong of Faithless, a move that his electronic influences apparent on songs such as the title track and 'Let Us Move On', which features Kendrick Lamar.  Unfortunately, neither features the hooks or beats that had her brother's acts filling dance floors, instead trudging on in a pedestrian manner.  Still, they are better than the embarrassing verses of 'Blackbird', a number that would have been skipped had it not been unfair to review something not heard in full.  Much of Dido's past success is owed to her soft yet powerful vocal style and it is when she marries this to a similar soundscape that you remember why she sold so many records.  'No Freedom' and 'Sitting On The Roof Of The World' give her the platform to sweep you away, even when she is being melancholic as is the case on the former.  This approach isn't a guarantee of success though and by the time 'Day Before We Went To War' draws to a close the album has been a gruelling listen.  Slim Shady will be disappointed if he was looking for another sample to incorporate.

Dido Smashed Brand New Car Into A Wall


Dido

British singer Dido once wrote off a car hours after buying the vehicle by driving into a wall.

The White Flag hitmaker splashed out on a motor, but regretted her impulsive purchase - and ended up smashing the car.

She tells Britain's Q magazine, "I'm not very good on purchases. A few years ago I bought a car because the interior was the same colour as my No Angel Cd - red and black. That's a girl reason for buying a car.

Dido's Happy Album


Dido

Dido's new album reflects her happy state of mind.

The 41-year-old singer has returned to the music scene with her first LP in four years, 'The Girl Who Got Away', and she says she was a lot more relaxed when writing it than she had been her previous records.

Dido - who has a 19-month-old son, Stanley - said: ''I think after all those years of success and being a rabbit caught in the headlights, you get confident about what you can do and what you're capable of doing, so there was a different approach making this record.
