The rap superstar has revived his bleached blonde hair alter ego Slim Shady for his new track 'Houdini', the lead single from his upcoming record. Could this mean Eminem is going on tour in 2024? We discuss when and where the 'Lose Yourself' rapper could play in the UK.

Eminem revolutionised the rap game in the nineties and early 2000s, breaking into an industry many thought he didn’t belong to and changing it for good.

These days, he is one of the most respected and celebrated rappers in the world, and any move he makes comes with adoration from his fans.

In commemoration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Slim Shady LP, Eminem is retiring his alter ego by killing off the controversial character in his forthcoming album.  

With a new single out and a new album set to be released, speculation of a 2024 tour is rife. While nothing has been confirmed, we explore the possibility of Eminem touring the UK and Europe in 2024.

Is Eminem releasing a new album?

In April, Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers) announced his new album with a fake news report about a murder. He revealed that his 12th studio album, 'The Death of Slim Shady (Coup de Grace)', will be out this summer, hinting at a dramatic end for the character.

Last week, the Grammy Award-winning rapper once again said 'guess who's back' as he released the lead single off the album, 'Houdini'.

The video for the track features cameos from rap legends Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent, as well as comedians Pete Davidson and Shane Gillis.

According to Rolling Stone, Eminem's song 'Houdini' continues the theme of Slim Shady's death with its magical undertones. In a teaser video with American magician and mentalist David Blaine, Eminem joked, "For my last trick, I'm gonna make my career disappear."

The song also pays homage to the late magician and escape artist, Houdini, who passed away at the age of 52. Interestingly, Rolling Stone points out that Eminem will also turn 52 in October. Could this mean that the rapper has something planned for the autumn? Perhaps a world tour could be on the cards!

When did Eminem last tour the UK?

Eminem hasn't toured the UK in six years. Back in July 2018, he played two huge shows at Twickenham Stadium in London. British singer songwriter Ed Sheeran joined the rapper on stage for 'River'.

In December 2023, rumours began to circulate on social media that the rapper had announced a '2024 UK Revival Tour', with fans listing themselves as 'going'.

JOE reported that a Facebook group claimed Eminem was bringing his tour to Birmingham Resorts World Arena on Friday 26th and 27th April 2024. Although the event attracted 29,000 'interested' fans, some soon realised that the concert went on sale years a go.

When and where could Eminem tour the UK in 2024?

Nothing has been announced about Eminem's next UK tour. However, when an artist releases a new album, they will usually promote it by taking it on the road.

Should Eminem confirm a world tour, it's very likely the UK would feature on the schedule for several dates.

With his level of star power, he could easily perform at stadiums with multiple London venues in his reach.

Cardiff’s Principality Stadium is another stadium that you could imagine filling out if Eminem were to perform there, as is Manchester's Co-op Live arena or the Etihad Stadium.

Our prediction is that Eminem may embark on a tour in the UK during the upcoming autumn season.

Who could Eminem tour with?

The anticipation of Eminem going on tour to perform a mix of his greatest hits and fresh tracks has fans buzzing with excitement.

What’s more exciting is who he could bring out during his tour.

Eminem is still signed to Aftermath Records (Dr. Dre’s record label), as he has been since 1999. He still regularly works with Dr. Dre, as well as acts associated with the label, such as Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and Kendrick Lamar.

The three also performed together at the 2022 Super Bowl Half-Time show in Los Angeles, California, along with Anderson .Paak, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar.

Any Eminem concert is a big deal and an unforgettable experience. But an Eminem concert with legends like those above? Historic.

What songs does Eminem play in concert?
