Two additional dates have been added to Eminem and Jay-Z's hometown stadium gig. The two rap moguls are now scheduled to share the stage of Detroit's Comerica Park on September 2 and 3. After that, they are going to rock New York's Yankee Stadium on September 13 and 14.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime set of shows and I know we're both really going to bring it to our hometowns," the Slim Shady said when announcing the first dates of the gig in May. "The fans are going to love this and so am I. It's gonna be historic."
"These shows are like a dream come true," Jay-Z added. "I've always hoped that hip-hop could play any stadium like other genres of music. How perfect is it that Eminem and I get to play our hometowns and show how far the live rap experience has come? Fun and historic - a great combination all around the board."
As a pre-cursor for the upcoming concerts, Eminem and Jay-Z have performed together on "Late Show with David Letterman". On Monday, June 21, they made a surprise performance on a rooftop of Ed Sullivan Theater. Due to security fears, only 100 invited fans were allowed to watch their show back then.
