Eminem thinks working with live musicians brings a ''new element'' to his shows.
The 'Rap God' hitmaker, who has announced a headline gig at Wembley Stadium in July, after being turned down for Hyde Park because he didn't have royal seal of approval, insists he's happy to be the first rapper ever to headline at the venue and can't wait to play with live musicians.
He told DJ Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1: ''It's definitely better, it definitely brings a whole new element to it. There are more things to do with your hands. It's a whole different energy, it's louder, it's more in your face, it's more explosive. For me, music is about feeling and energy and all that.
''We always try to mess around with the order of things. There are certain songs that just, for some reason or another, they don't work as good live. You have to go with the ones that work best to perform live. Sometimes we'll [also] add ones in we haven't done in a while.''
His next single 'Headlights' from his latest album, 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', is going to be released to coincide with the show.
Eminem said: ''A lot of the times when we do the sound check I get to see the venue, but I know Wembley Stadium is huge.''
The star thinks it's ''incredible'' he is able to do big shows when he wants and not have to tour for months on end, which he feels is a ''blessing''.
Eminem added: ''I'm not saying I'll never be ready for that again, but right now, this is what's working for me.''
Tickets for the Wembley show on July 11 go on sale on Friday, May 9 at 9am.
