We’re about 24 hours away from the kickoff of Eminem and Rihanna’s three-city Monster Tour in Pasadena, California and the anticipation is killing us. Sure, they’ve posted rehearsal photos — but those pictures have revealed absolutely nothing. So, we’re left to speculate about what they might have in store, based on their previous performances together.
Rihanna will probably be on her rock sh–.
RiRi is always full of surprises, but when she and Em performed “Monster” live, for the first time at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, she went all Lorde on us. All of that spazzing and shaking was a departure from her usual win’ing and grinding — but we liked it. And we’ll take some more.
They’ll have insane backdrops with fiery stage effects.
Eminem went into the 2010 MTV VMAs with eight nominations, but he really set fire to the night with his opening performance. After kicking things off with “Not Afraid,” Rihanna made a surprise cameo during “Love the Way You Lie,” with her bright red hair against a flaming backdrop. It was intense.
There will be custom Trapstar tour merch for sale.
Sorry Yeezus, you’re not the only one who can come up with dope tour merchandise. Rihanna teamed up with one of her favorite brands, the UK-based TrapStar, to create some custom gear that fans can purchase during the show. You should probably walk away with at least one great tee. Rih’s definitely been wearing them to rehearsals.
Rih will show lots of skin and Eminem will wear white tees.
Rihanna’s tour outfits never cease to amaze and since this is the Monster Tour, we imagine that she’ll be going with some extra dark and sexy pieces, maybe even borderline scary. In a good way. As for Eminem, probably his usual rotation of white tees and grey or black hoodies?
Eminem might get lap dance.
If they’re doing an entire concert together, how could he not get at least one? This guy got one and he didn’t really do anything to deserve it. There’s a chance that Shady might be even more awkward than that random guy was, but at least we know that there’s no chance of her reacting like what you see above.
