Eminem will be traveling to Australia next year for the "Rapture" tour, and he's planning on bringing a few stateside friends with him.
Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole will join the Detroit rapper on his four-date stint down under in mid-February that also includes a stop in Auckland, New Zealand, Eminem's first ever concert in the country. This past summer Kendrick joined Eminem in Europe for a few spot date performances. And by spot date, we mean huge 90,000 seat stadiums where the whole crowd screamed "YAK YAK YAK" in unison. Their shows in Australia and New Zealand should provide similar results.
Earlier reports suggested Chance The Rapper and Action Bronson would be included on the "Rapture" tour with Eminem, though nothing has officially been released on the subject. However, Australian rapper 360 and New Zealand MC David Dallas will take part in the festivities. Pre-sale tickets will be available October 24.
Eminem's upcoming album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 will be released November 5. You can view the tour dates below:
Feb. 15: Auckland, New Zealand - Western Springs
Feb. 19: Melbourne, Australia - Etihad Stadium
Feb. 20: Brisbane, Australia - Suncorp Stadium
Feb. 22: Sydney, Australia - ANZ Stadium
