Eminem ignored technical problems to turn his native Detroit, Michigan, shows at the weekend (12/13JUL03) into unforgettable moments in rap.

Kid Rock drove the star onto the stage for Saturday night's (12JUL03) show, where Eminem was joined by SHADY RECORDS labelmates Obie Trice and 50 CENT and pals Missy Elliot and Monica.

More than 100,000 rap fans checked out the two shows at FORD FIELD, and no one seemed to mind the technical problems which led to video screens cutting out and Eminem losing his vocals during his performance.

The rapper even roped Detroit Mayor KWANE KILPATRICK into the proceedings - he starred in a pre-show video, trying to persuade SLIM SHADY to perform in the city.

And he drove fans wild when a rode atop a HUMMER vehicle into the middle of the crowd while performing his hit Lose Yourself.

The weekend shows are two of only three Eminem plans to perform in America this year (03).
