B.o.B Set To Open Eminem/Jay-Z Detroit, NYC Shows

VMA nominee will join the superstar duo on stops at Comerica Park and Yankee Stadium.

Jay-Z and Eminem will have some company with them during their back-to-back Detroit shows at Comerica Park later this week, and then again when the duo hit New York’s Yankee Stadium.

One of B.o.B’s managers, music-industry vet T.J. Chapman, wrote a not-so-thinly-veiled message on Twitter indicating that the VMA nominee is set to open for the two superstar MCs.

“I’m excited about heading to Detroit tomorrow for a few days,” Chapman wrote late Tuesday night. “B.o.B is performing @ Tiger Stadium w/ GUESS WHO & WHO????”

Jay and Em are of course scheduled to perform at the Detroit Tigers’ new stadium (the team’s old ballpark was known as Tiger Stadium) this Thursday and Friday. A label representative for B.o.B had no comment when contacted by MTV News on Wednesday (September 1).

The Atlanta rapper’s other manager, Brian “B.Rich” Richardson, wrote on Twitter on Wednesday that his client would also open for the superstar duo during their New York residency in two weeks, slated for September 13 and 14 in the Bronx.

“New York & Detroit, B.o.B is gonna open up for @EMINEM! and @JayZ!!!” Richardson wrote.

The buzz for the twin pair of concerts continues to build. This week, Jay-Z and the Yankees unveiled co-branded paraphernalia in honor of the New York performances: Jerseys, T-shirts and hats featuring Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 insignia will adorn items alongside the team’s classic interlocking “NY” logo.

Fans got a small preview of the much-anticipated pairing earlier this summer when Eminem and Jay-Z visited the “Late Show With David Letterman.” Both MCs performed, and later Eminem delivered the show’s trademark Top 10 list, while Jay-Z sat for an interview with Letterman.
