Eminem and Rihanna teased last month that they would be heading out on a tour together, but the announcement was just that, a tease.
Today, it was confirmed the two music powerhouses will be joining forces and heading out on a co-headlining “Monster” tour (not to be confused with any of Lady Gaga’s tours). The tour is slated to begin its trek on August 7 with a show at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles followed by a stop at New York’s Metlife Stadium on August 16. The tour will wrap up in Eminem’s hometown of Detroit at the Comerica Park on August 22.
If you believe what reports are claiming then the tour stops will coincide with Eminem’s somewhat confirmed appearance at Lollapalooza during the weekend of August 1st-3rd as well as his appearance at British Columbia’s Squamish Valley Music Festival due to take place during the weekend of August 8th-10th.
Fans with American Express card can qualify to purchase pre-sale tickets beginning on March 20 while a Facebook pre-sale will begin on March 22. A Livenation app pre-sale will be held on March 27 while general public tickets will go on sale on March 28 beginning at 10 a.m. through Livenation’s website.
