Rap superstar Eminem to perform in Abu Dhabi

By

If you’re a real Slim Shady fan, please stand up.

Rap superstar Eminem will play a massive Abu Dhabi show at Yas Island’s Du Arena on October 25 as part of his Kamakaze World Tour.

This marks seven years since his last performance in the UAE, which was part of the F1 after-race concerts back in 2012.

From humble beginnings to mega-stardom Marshall Mathers III has produced some of the most iconic rap of his generation including Lose Yourself, Not Afraid, The Real Slim Shady and Without Me, won more awards than most artists could dream of, and developed some serious talent in the form of 50 cent and D12.

His outrageously dark-humoured lyrics have carved a distinct niche for him in hip hop and ultimately crossed over to a mainstream pop market – albeit with a record-setting number of censors’ bleeps.

Expect a set list that will throw back to the 1990s and 2000s, featuring some of Mathers’ most iconic tracks, and recent hits from his latest album Kamikaze, the best-selling Hip-Hop album of 2018, including The Greatest, Lucky You and Nice Guy.

Tickets are available from noon on Monday June 10.

Du Arena, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, October 25. Doors open at 6.30pm. Tickets start at Dh395. ticketmaster.ae
