Also known as the Elvis of Hip-Hop, Eminem has announced that he will be playing at the historic Slane Castle in Ireland on August 17th, 2013. It was also confirmed that Shady will be headlining the 2013 editions of both the Leeds & Reading Festivals in England. The announcements come nearly 8 years after Em cancelled his 2005 sold-out European Tour due to exhaustion.
On the brink of releasing his eighth studio album, and with two of the world’s largest and most renowned music festivals already on the schedule, Slim Shady could very well be preparing to announce some North American festival dates for Spring 2013. While the scenario remains pure speculation, this would most likely put the man properly known as Marshall Mathers on pace for a full North American tour in support of his new album over the Fall/Winter of 2013.
