Eminem has announced his first gig in Scotland since he performed at 2010’s T in the Park, NME report. The Detroit rapper is the first act to be announced for a new concert series, which will take place in Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park in August 2013, with his concert taking place on August 20.

The event organiser Geoff Ellis said “We're delighted to announce Eminem as the first major act for Glasgow Summer Sessions. His performance at T In The Park and his previous stadium show at Hampden were spectacular, so this gig will be one of the events of the year. As it's one of the most important music destinations in the world, we’re also excited about what else we have to announce for Summer Sessions – more news soon!” Tickets for the show will go on sale on Wednesday January 30, 2013 at 9am. The presale starts on Tuesday January 29, via gigsinscotland.com.

It was announced, last month, that Eminem would also headline this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, which take place on the UK summer bank holiday, August 23 – 25. In fact, August is a pretty busy month for Eminem on this side of the Atlantic, as he’s also announced a huge Irish gig at Slane Castle on August 17, 2013. He’s already announced plans to release a new album this year too.
