In order to see Eminem in concert this summer — or even this year — it might help if you’re a resident of 8 Mile.
According to promoter Clear Channel, the rapper’s Motor City concert will be his only U.S. show this year. Guests 50 Cent and Missy Elliott will also play the July 12 show at Ford Field, Detroit’s new football stadium.
Em’s hometown posse D-12 and their Slim Shady labelmate Obie Trice might also make appearances. Though Clear Channel is calling the show Eminem’s only North American concert of the year, Interscope Records could not confirm that at press time.
Tickets go on sale Saturday and can be bought via CC.com, Ticketmaster, the Ford Field box office or by calling (248) 645-6666. Purchases will be limited to 12 tickets per person.
Those who miss the Eminem show will still be able to catch a summer concert at Ford Field. Metallica, Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park will be making a stop there on the sophomore run of the Summer Sanitarium Tour later in the month (see “Linkin Park, Limp Bizkit, Metallica To Launch Joint Tour” ).
