The show must go on — even if it’s without Eminem.
50 Cent has decided to soldier on in the wake of his Anger Management 3 tour mate’s cancellation with a European tour of his own, his label announced Wednesday (August 17).
Eminem was due to headline the European leg of Anger Management, which was to begin September 1 in Hamburg, Germany, but he pulled out Tuesday citing medical issues (see “Eminem Cancels European Tour Due To Exhaustion” ).
50’s replacement tour won’t have the same dates and venues, but “plans are moving ahead for a string of shows this fall,” Interscope spokesperson Yvette Gayle said. “50 is eager to see his fans and looks forward to giving them an exciting performance.”
A new tour itinerary will be forthcoming as soon as the schedule is confirmed. Akon will be joining 50 on the tour, according to a Universal Records spokesperson.
