The wait is finally over! Eminem will grace our shores for four massive Australian stadium shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and for the very first time Perth in February 2019. Eminem will also travel to New Zealand performing for the first ever in Wellington in March 2019 – presented by TEG DAINTY.
Eminem’s fiercely loyal Australian fanbase has been willing for tour dates to be added in this territory, constantly spinning the rumour mill into overdrive, and now their prayers have been answered: the rap god is on his way, special guests will be announced soon and join the line-up for this second instalment of the RAPTURE 2019 stadium tour.
Eminem’s Rapture 2019 tour dates are:
Brisbane Wednesday 20 February QSAC
Sydney Friday 22 February ANZ Stadium
Melbourne Sunday 24 February MCG
Perth Wednesday 27 February Optus Stadium
Wellington Saturday 2 March Westpac Stadium
Tickets to Eminem’s Rapture Tour are on sale now from Ticketek.
A VISA cardholder pre-sale was available from 10am on Wednesday 17 October through to 10am Friday 19 October. Eminem’s live show illustrates exactly why he remains the “greatest in the world” of hip-hop. The Detroit rap icon’s rapid-fire flow, expansive phrasing and acerbic lyrics are awe-inspiring to witness live.
On Eminem’s 2018 headline Coachella set, Rolling Stone gushed, “Everything that made Slim Shady one of the most essential voices of his generation was onstage this weekend.”
When the 15-time Grammy award winner and biggest-selling rapper of all time dropped his surprise tenth studio album ‘Kamikaze’, unannounced, on 31 August this year it was impossible to ignore, flying straight to #1 on the Australian Albums chart where it retained pole position for four consecutive weeks, becoming the MC’s ninth chart-topping album in this country. And the record-breaking rapper just keeps on racking up the accolades. ‘Killshot’, Eminem’s standalone single, scored the highest 24-hour YouTube debut for a hip-hop video (the third-highest music video debut overall) upon its release last month.
Eminem’s previous Australian visit for 2014’s Rapture Tour thrilled audiences at sold-out stadiums across the country and every seat was filled during his previous Lose Yourself Australian tour in 2011. He’s no stranger to selling out stadium shows in less than 30 minutes in this country.
Paul Dainty, President and CEO of TEG DAINTY said: “Eminem is a global superstar and his live shows are phenomenal, we’re proud to once again present his Australian tour”.
