Eminem Tour | When Will Eminem Tour Next?

Is 2016 the year?

This post is a collection of rumors, stories, and theories regarding Eminem’s nest possible concert tour, dating back to 2014. It is constantly updated to make sure Eminem fans has the most current information regarding an Eminem tour.

Eminem hasn’t toured since the Monster Tour with Rihanna back in the summer of 2014 and his last studio album, “The Marshall Mathers LP2” was released just about three years ago. Since then there have been constant rumors swirling that Eminem is in the studio working on his next project, which could then lead to a long awaited Eminem concert tour.

However, recent reports suggest that a new album won’t be released anytime soon. While some tracks may have been completed, The Real Slim Shady is short on material to rap about. Sources close to Eminem reveal that wants this album to meaningful, and he won’t produce tracks that lack inspiration or thought-provoking lyrics.

For one of the most influential artists across any genre, there is no reason to rush out an album that would not live up to either Eminem’s standard, or more importantly his fans. So without a definitive timetable for a new album release, Eminem’s concert tour plans will be put on hold as well. We would expect the earliest Eminem would go on tour would in 2017.

Will Eminem tour in Europe with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar?

On the Beats 1 radio show, The Pharmacy, Dre revealed in an interview with protégé and friend Snoop Dogg/Lion, that one of the last things he wants to do in his career is a European tour with Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar.

“I’m 30 years in the game right now and I’ve never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop, we’ve been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it’s just been spot dates and taking a microphone over there with a DJ,” Dre said. “I’ve never had the opportunity to take the full production over there, and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that’s been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career.”

SouthPaw & Stephen Colbert

The second half of 2015 has seen the rapper return to his reclusive lifestyle. With the Southpaw soundtrack wrapped and the film long since released, the only thing he’s released recently is the music video for Phenomenal:

The video shows Em racing through the streets of some unknown Asian city, outwitting his captors and kicking the crap out of them at every turn.

And, oh, there was the hilarious interview he did with Stephen Colbert on Good Morning Monroe to promote the album. If you haven’t already seen it, it’s well worth watching in its entirety. Please make this a regular thing, Stephen!

Will Eminem Tour with N.W.A.?

The biggest indication that a 2015 or potentially 2016 Eminem tour was in the works was that Eminem would tour with N.W.A. to support the Straight Outta Compton biopic, in replace of Eazy-E. The rumors started after three of N.W.A’s surviving members – Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren performed at the BET Experience in June. While Dr. Dre was noticeably missing from the lineup, it reignited fans’ dreams of a 21st Century NWA tour. In reality, the rumors were held together with nothing more than that – dreams. Both Eminem and Dre released a statement saying the rumors were unfounded. And since all buzz about the movie has died off, we can pretty much consider any chances of an NWA/Eminem tour to be dead.

Why hasn’t Eminem toured?

Ultimately, Eminem hasn’t toured much since his original years as a successful artist because he doesn’t have to. Let me ask you this – if Eminem dropped some music tonight, would you listen to it?

Yep, so would everyone else. While in many of his songs, Eminem questions his own relevance, he has everyone’s ear whenever he decides to pick up the mic.

2015 Tour Rumors

In the three quarters of a year since Eminem and Rihanna took The Monster Tour around the United States, Eminem’s work has been all about nostalgia, leading many to question whether or not the rapper will tour in 2015 or if he has quit the tour bus for good. It all started with a simple t-shirt that he wore on the last day of the Monster Tour, which had #ShadyXV emblazoned across it. Just to make sure no one missed the message, he tweeted out a pic to his 19M+ Twitter followers:

Just as expected, the Internet went insane, with everyone speculating what the rapper was up to. Having dropped his eighth studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, the previous September, no one expected Mathers to follow up his highly successful album so quickly. Luckily for his fans, Eminem is (in)famous for his surprises.

The Release of SHADYXV

While at the 2014 VMA’s, Eminem tweeted a teaser trailer for the new album, titled SHADYXV, with a release date of Black Friday:

The 20-second trailer showed a compilation of Slim Shady’s greatest moments, while the beat for ‘Patiently Waiting’ (for those who haven’t seen Complex Magazine’s Magnum Opus on the song, it’s the first song Shady Records released, and the song that really launched 50’s career into the stratosphere) plays in the background.

Soon after, as he has done many times in the past, Eminem teased a new song in a trailer for an upcoming movie. This time, the movie was The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington and Chloe Grace Moretz (Kickass). The song, Guts over Fear, was later revealed to be a single off the upcoming album, which as fans had already guessed would be titled, SHADYXV, in celebration of the fifteenth anniversary of Shady Records.

In anticipation of the new album’s release, Shady Records released the Shady Cypher, a compilation video showing different artists signed to Shady Records free styling in their hometowns:

The new record is unlike anything Eminem has released so far. It consists of two discs, with the first disc consisting of all new material from Eminem and other Shady Records artists, including the above-mentioned ‘Guts over Fear’ featuring Sia, and ‘Detroit vs. Everybody’ featuring Royce Da “5’9”, Big Sean, Danny Brown, Dej Loaf, & Trick Trick.

Meanwhile, the second disc consists of the best of Shady Record’s previously released material, including an early demo version of ‘Lose Yourself’!

Nostalgia Abounds – The SHADY XV Documentary

Continuing with the nostalgia theme, Shady Records released, in collaboration with Complex Magazine, Not Afraid, an introspective look into the founding of Shday Records, and it’s impact on hip hop over the last fifteen years. It’s really a great documentary and is worthy of the half-hour of your time it asks for:

With so much time spent looking back, the question has remained – when will Eminem start looking forward to a new, completely original album, and a 2015 or 2016 tour? Until now.

In late March, Eminem gave us a “sneak peek” of what’s next. And just like last time, it’s in the form of a song for a movie trailer, this time Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Rachel McAdams:

And, finally, the full audio to Eminem’s ‘Phenomenal’:

D12 Rapper Talks 2015 Eminem Album

Shortly after the release of ‘Phenomenal’, D12 rapper Denaun Porter stated “I doubt it, but I don’t know.”, when asked if Eminem was going to put out an album in 2015.

To be honest, I don’t buy it, Denaun. If Eminem is putting out an album this year, then why is he making all this new music? It just doesn’t add up.

Tech N9ne confirms collaboration with Eminem is complete

Back in April, Tech N9ne told the story of his collaboration with Eminem for WWC2, and how he was overjoyed when all Eminem wanted for doing a verse on Tech’s song was for Tech to come do a verse on his. Two and a half months later, Tech N9ne confirmed that the collaboration has already happened.

As of yet, there is no word from Eminem on when the collab (or any other new music for that matter) will be released. Tech N9ne’s announcement makes D12’s Denaun’s comments that 2015 probably won’t see a new album from Eminem. Why the quick turnaround on the song if nothing bigger is coming down the pipeline?

Looing Forward – A 2015 Tour?

So, what exactly does this mean for the future of Slim Shady and our chances of seeing him on tour in 2015?

The reality is that Eminem could announce a tour playing five nights in every major city in America, and it would sell out in five minutes. That’s how popular this guy is. Unfortunately, looking at his past ventures into the concert arena, there is a slim-to-none chance that Eminem would do a tour even half the size of 2014’s The Monster Tour without a new album. It’s just how he thinks.

So, will Eminem release a new album in 2015?

I want to say yes – after all, he’s the best-selling hip hop artist of all time, and with The Marshall Mathers LP 2, he solidified himself as still being the greatest rapper alive. There is also the fact that so soon after the release of Shady XV, he is already teasing new music in the form of a movie trailer, the exact way he has started building hype and publicity for a new album several times already.

On the other hand, a ‘greatest hits’ album is usually the beginning of the end for an artist, and that’s what SHADY XV essentially was. Even disc one, with the new material relied more on Shady Records’ rolodex of artists, and thereby Em’s proficiency as the CEO of a record label than it did on Eminem’s skill as a rapper.

Therefore, while I’m hopeful that we’ll get another shot to see Eminem live, I have to conclude that the odds are 50/50. It could go either way.

However, if Eminem did go on tour in 2015, where would you like to see him perform? 389 people have already responded. Let your voice be heard in the comments!

Finally, after months of speculation and rumors, Eminem has announced that he will be touring with Rihanna this summer in at least three US cities – New York, Detroit, and Los Angeles. Exact tour dates and (hopefully more cities!) coming soon.


Eminem’s new album – The Marshall Mathers LP 2 – has met enormous success and praise from critics and fans alike. Will Eminem follow up his new album with a US Tour in 2014? Despite the occasional appearance with Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, and other hip hop artists, Eminem hasn’t officially toured the United States since August 2011. The build up for his latest album could mean that he’s ready to get back on stage.

Eminem Tour 2014 – South Africa Tour Dates Announced

It’s official. Australia and New Zealand are not the only tour stops Eminem will be making to promote his new, outrageously successful album. Just announced – Eminem will also be playing two shows in South Africa. The performances, which will be in Cape Town on February 26th and Johannesburg on March 1st, will be Eminem’s fist visit to South Africa and the entire African continent. Will he finish up his world tour with something a little closer to home? Read through our suspicions, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Eminem Tour 2014 – Marshall Mathers LP 2 Leaked Online

We’re not saying that you should listen to Eminem’s leaked Marshall Mathers LP 2 album, but if you wanted to, you can download a torrent for it here, or listen to it on YouTube here. After the album was leaked (intentionally?), Eminem released this Public Service Announcement:

Eminem Tour 2014 – Eminem Tour Dates Announced with Action Bronson, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and 360

Rumors have been swirling for a while that Eminem was set to announce a string of tour dates in Australia and New Zealand that included the Docklands Amphitheater in Melbourne, Australia, which he almost got kicked out of two years ago. While fans in the USA eagerly hoped that this tour would swing its way north, they are in no such luck. While Eminem has confirmed that he will be touring the land down under in 2014, he has yet to let us know if he will touring the United States as well.

Eminem recently announced that his 2014 Tour of Australia and New Zealand will occur alongside such hard-hitting hip-hop artists as Action Bronson, the always dissing Kendrick Lamar, RocNation’s J. Cole, and Yelawolf look-alike 360. Eminem tickets went on sale this morning at a minimum $155 (Australian). Will Kendrick and J. Cole be with Slim Shady when he (hopefully) tours the US in 2014? Read more below, and then let us know what you think in the comments.

Eminem Tour 2014 – More than Rumor?

Let’s get back to straight hip hop and start it from scratch.” – Eminem, Berzerk

2014 Eminem Tour BerzerkThere’s a lot riding for Eminem on the success of The Marshall Mathers LP 2. It’s his first solo album since 2004 whose title does not reference his decade-long struggle with prescription drug abuse. Moreover, the album bills itself as a sequel to what has been called one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time – The Marshall Mathers LP – which has sold more 21 million copies worldwide. If The Marshall Mathers LP 2 falls short of that, it will prove to all those post-rehab skeptics that Eminem should have quit the game with Encore, when he originally meant to. After the release of The Marshall mathers LP, Eminem took to the world-famous Up in Smoke Tour, which featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and Ice Cube. Such a hard-hitting crew certainly powered his album’s record-breaking sales. Can he repeat the same numbers without another tour that hits his most loyal fan base – the United States? Probably not.

Ten years later, Eminem’s newest music video for Berzerk is a clear call-back to the days of Slim Shady.  But does this reincarnation signal that Eminem is ramping up to a new world tour? You be the judge:

UPDATE: The following quote was found in a USA Today article on Eminem’s to be released Rap God music video:

Rosenberg [Eminem’s manager] said the Rap God music video is scheduled to come out in about two weeks. And while he won’t reveal much about touring plans or what’s coming next, he said Eminem fans should be excited.

????????? – Eminem announces US Tour to promote The Marshall Mathers LP 2

So, to sum up, Eminem has performed on Saturday Night Live, the YouTube Music Awards, is releasing music video after music video, and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in early 2014. Seriously, Eminem? If you’re not gearing up for a 2014 US tour, what are you doing?

Eminem Tour 2014 – Who will be touring with him?

The list of artists who will potentially be touring with Eminem in 2014 reads like a who’s who of hip-hop. Of course, Dr. Dre will be present at some point, and long-time friend and collaborator 50 Cent has confirmed that he worked with Eminem on The Marshall Mathers LP 2. If Eminem is reaching back to his roots, we can certainly expect a presence from his old bandmates, D12. What about Jay-Z? Lil Wayne? Snoop Dogg? Royce Da 5’9″? Kendrick Lamar? All likely. If not through the entire tour, then at least for a show here and there. More so if Eminem is returning to a style reminiscent his Up in Smoke Tour. The more important question: Will the Tupac hologram be touring with Eminem? Not likely, but one can always dream about the two of history’s greatest hip-hop stars sharing the stage. While since his last tour, Eminem has collaborated with Pink and B.O.B., the style of Berzerk, Survival, and Rap God suggest that he will not be looking to work with anyone who does not fit the old school hip-hop persona.
