Get ready to welcome back the King of Rap in 2014! Next February Eminem will return to Oz on his second headline tour; The Rapture Festival.
The 13-time Grammy and Oscar winner sold out every seat on the Australian leg of his Recovery Tour in 2011 and Rapture is sure to head the same way. It is also likely to become a yearly event, with promoters insisting "Rapture is a long-term vision of an annual event showcasing the best of hip-hop at an affordable price".
Fellow headline act Kendrick Lamar (A.D.H.D, Control)
Rapper/songwriter J. Cole (Who Dat, Premeditated Murder)
Local Aussie hip hop artist 360 (Child, Boys Like You)
Just announced is the adding of a third US rapper and former chef Action Bronson (Shiraz, The Rockers). Bronson's debut studio album is due out next year.
Promoters are also said to be in negotiations to add at least one more American artist to the 'one night only' line-up.
Tickets will be on sale from Oct 31st in each city and range in price from $100 for reserve seating to $299 for the Lose Yourself Zone. Tickets for the Melbourne show can be purchased from Ticketmaster and from Ticketek for the Sydney & Brisbane shows. VIP and fan packages will also be available online here
