Eminem In South Africa – Cape Town 26 Feb 2014

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Music | 0 comments

I have one of the weirdest tastes in music that I know. Not because I like strange sounds, but simply because I have such a wide variety of music that I listen to and really appreciate. One of those strange tastes is the fact that I am a MASSIVE Eminem fan – like MASSIVE.

At the start of 2011 I decided the three artists that I wished I could see live was Blink 182, Linkin Park and Eminem – in no particular order. In 2012, I managed to tick one of those off the list and saw Linkin Park live and the experience was awesome.

Eminem will now be the next and the one that I have wanted to see the most. Cape Town will be graced with the Rap God on February 26 at the Cape Town Stadium and I think I just wizzed with excitement!

Tickets

Tickets go on sale on Thursday 21st November at 9am from Computicket. Frankly, I don’t care what they cost, I am getting my hands on some.

Lineup

No lineup has been confirmed yet, but I am sure he will have a large entourage with him as always. I am also sure that there will be some big acts opening before him.

If you are looking for more info you can head through here and find the official press pack.

First off, Lil Wayne features on Paris Hilton’s new excuse of a song and she signs for Cash Money records.

Secondly, Snoop Dogg makes what ever the hell this is:

Ok, so it has Kate Upton which makes it visually tolerant, but otherwise, I don’t even know what is going on there.
